React Native WebRTC

A WebRTC module for React Native.

Feature Overview

Android iOS tvOS macOS* Windows* Web* Expo*
Audio/Video ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ - - ✔️ ✔️
Data Channels ✔️ ✔️ - - - ✔️ ✔️
Screen Capture ✔️ ✔️ - - - ✔️ ✔️
Plan B - - - - - - -
Unified Plan* ✔️ ✔️ - - - ✔️ ✔️

macOS - We don't currently actively support macOS at this time.
Support might return in the future.

Windows - We don't currently support the react-native-windows platform at this time.
Anyone interested in getting the ball rolling? We're open to contributions.

Web - The react-native-webrtc-web-shim project provides a shim for react-native-web support.
Which will allow you to use (almost) the exact same code in your react-native-web project as you would with react-native directly.

Expo - As this module includes native code it is not available in the Expo Go app by default.
However you can get things working via the expo-dev-client library and out-of-tree config-plugins/react-native-webrtc package.

Unified Plan - As of version 106.0.0 Unified Plan is the only supported mode.
Those still in need of Plan B will need to use an older release.

Simulcast - As of version 111.0.0 Simulcast is now possible with ease.
Software encode/decode factories have been enabled by default.
