By 2019, there will be more than 2 billion active users of "embedded" communications worldwide, spanning consumer, enterprise and Internet of Things applications, according to analyst firm Disruptive Analysis.
WebRTC is an emerging standard that allows voice and video communications to be added to websites and mobile apps without a standalone phone or videoconferencing service. "WebRTC is the most important new communications technology of the decade," said Dean Bubley, Disruptive Analysis director, in a press release. "It is already enabling developers to create a broad array of communications-enabled consumer and business applications. More than 6 billion devices will be WebRTC-capable within five years."
