Why Whereby?

A team that cares

We pride ourselves in partnering with and supporting our customers. Our developer-friendly documentation and dedicated teams of Solutions Engineers and Customer Success experts are readily available to get you started.

We’re focused on integrated video

We’re 100% focused on providing a real-time video conferencing API that’s best in class; integrated solutions are not Zoom’s core offering.

Web-first, customizable solution

Zoom’s web client is not their focus. Whereby is web-first, fully embraces WebRTC and is fully customizable.

No unnecessary complexities

A set of basic Zoom Web SDK features such as gallery view, background effects and 720p video depend on the SharedArrayBuffer API, which brings along a lot of additional complexity.
