WebRTC in Jetpack Compose
This project demonstrates WebRTC protocol to facilitate real-time video communications with Jetpack Compose.
The purpose of this repository is to demonstrate below:
- Implementing entire UI elements for real-time video communication with Jetpack Compose.
- Performing real-time communication in background with Kotlin Coroutines.
- Understanding the peer connection based on WebRTC.
- Communicating with a signaling server to exchange peer connection information between clients.
✍️ Technical Content
We’re preparing to publish a blog post about WebRTC in Jetpack Compose. If you need to understand WebRTC and communication protocols, check out the HTTP, WebSocket, gRPC or WebRTC: Which Communication Protocol is Best For Your App?.
? Stream Chat and Voice & Video calling SDK
If you’re interested in adding powerful In-App Messaging to your app, check out the Compose Chat SDK for Messaging! We’re also planning to release voice & video calling SDK very soon! Check out the Video & Voice Calling API on Stream’s Global Edge Network, if you want early access to our SDK.

? How to build the project?
To build this project properly, you should follow the instructions below:
- Run the WebRTC backend server.
- Add the local ip address of your pc on the
local.propertiesfile on the project (Android Studio) like the below:
# You should change 192.168.1.123 to your local ip address, which is running the WebRTC backend server.
- Lastly, run the WebRTC android project on your multiple devices to test peer communication.
Most features are not completed except the chat feature, so that anyone can contribute and improve this project following the Contributing Guideline.
