We need to talk – bringing calling and messaging to your app with Azure Communication Services  

Azure Communication Services (now available in GA), is a fully managed communication platform that enables developers and organizations to securely build communications features and connected user experiences across applications running on any device. Azure Communication Services is ideal for any developer or organization seeking to build new ways to connect with users across different channels (mobile, web, desktop). Our set of SDKs and APIs enable developers and organizations to create and control the calling connections they need with interactive, collaborate audio and video calling over the internet. Or they can enable end-to-end communication scenarios with telephony and SMS capabilities that complement traditional engagement modalities with more personal, direct communication.

Come join us in this casual discussion for some insights into the product and cool demos. You will not be disappointed.
