Coming Soon: Free Daily.co video chat component

The integrated chat in the video call component work great, why not to make a component only for real-time chat?

Glad it works @yayouyi_tataki! What do you mean by real-time? The chats and videos are synchronous! Are you looking for live streams?

I’m actually looking for a chat that work with short latence. I have built one in Adalo with 3 actions for each message sent but it require 5 secs or more to make the sending process done. Really really bad indeed. That’s why I’m suggesting a chat component only as you have one included on the video chat component which work great but that I cannot spare front the entire component.

Oh that’s interesting, I understand so text chat only, no video or audio. I’ll look into that! Thanks for sharing @yayouyi_tataki

Hello,

Would it be possible to have a tutorial on how to use daily.co for videoconferencing on Adalo.
I can’t find any documentation that allows me to configure it.

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

Hey @theo1!

The component supports Daily prebuilt. Here’s a reference to Daily’s documentation and some unofficial documentation of the capabilities of the component with some info on getting started. Also, here’s a demo app that you can clone or play with to try it out!

Hey @theo1!

The component supports Daily prebuilt. Here’s a reference to Daily’s API documentation and some unofficial documentation of the capabilities of the component and a bit on getting started. Also, here’s a demo app that you can clone or play with to try it out!

Daily co is a video conferencing platform that allows developers to add video chat functionality to their websites or apps. They offer a free plan that includes a limited number of users and features. However, if you want to use the full range of features and support more users, you will need to upgrade to a paid plan. You can use the Daily co API to customize the video chat component to fit your needs.

With a video calling API, programmers can build custom live video and audio chat experiences on any mobile device or web app. Usually, all video call APIs and SDKs come following WebRTC technology.

Here are some of the best live video calling APIs and SDKs are MirrorFly, Agora, Apphitect, Twilio, Getstream, Sinch, EnableX, etc… choose your provider today based on their features, pricing, and more.

hi @Connectall and everyone did you solve this problem of daily.co where the group video works well in the PWA but when downloaded from the google play store, the two participants are in not together in the same room. please let me know what the reason could be.

Happy to help with that @sanjay they should be in the same room so long as you’re using the same URL to join the room in both instances. Mind PMing me a screenshot of your setup? I can help diagnose.

Are you only observing separate rooms on android? Not IOS as well?

I am trying to use the same example as in the template where the admin sends a video link and user joins the room. Clone Appointments App to Jumpstart Your No Code App (adalo.com).

for now, testing only in android app will publish on iOS after testing in android.

@sanjay Thank you for sharing the template. When it comes to sharing video links from the daily component, you have a couple of options:

  1. You can use the link directly from Daily.
  2. Alternatively, you can embed it in your app alongside the daily video component.

In the clone I’ll share how to accomplish #1

In the clone you shared, I noticed there’s an “accept request” screen with a place for adding the video link:

You can replace this with the “Create Room Button” from the Daily component, which will generate the room link for you. Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Add the button to your screen:

  2. In the property editor, add your API key. No other settings need to be changed:

If you’d like to customize button styles, you can toggle the option below and make the desired style changes:

  1. Then in the actions you can update your request with the room link which will be the “room URL” from the “Create Room Button”. This will be a direct URL outside of the app.

That should cover everything. So long as you’re joining the same room_url that’s in your database everyone should be in the same room. Feel free to clone my setup (just remember to add your API key). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Hi @lunchpaillola Thank you so much for the reply. I just published the latest version of the app, and it works for the Android version.
