Who can use appear.in? Which devices are supported?
The goal is that is should be easy to invite anyone to appear.in - people you invite do not need to register or have an account in appear.in to join your conversation! It is possible to join an appear.in room from both a computer (Mac, Windows, Linux) and mobile devices (iOS, Android).
Desktop computers: appear.in is built using WebRTC, a new web standard for real-time communication in browsers, which is currently only supported in newer versions of Chrome, Firefox, Opera and Vivaldi.
appear.in supports the two latest versions of these browsers, so if it doesn't work, try updating your browser (you can check your browser for updates typically under Settings>About). So for the time being, you will not be able to use it in other browsers.
Safari and Microsoft Edge are currently in the experimental stage with our team. As WebRTC support was recently released in both systems (preview for Safari), our team is working hard to test them out to work through any bugs before we roll out general support for appear.in in these browser types.
iPhone/iPad: For iOS, it is currently not technically possible to do video conversations directly in the browser, so it is required to download our iOS app.
Android phones/tablets: You can enter appear.in rooms directly in the browser if you use Chrome, Firefox or Opera for Android. If you are a regular user of appear.in, and want to receive push notifications, we recommend downloading our Android app.
