WebRTC literally changed the world of real-time communication from a normal communication base to a high quality and effective comfort space for media streaming. It does multiple helping tasks and provides exceptional beneficiaries to the user, developer, and integrator. The level of merit achieves through WebRTC were absent in earlier real- time communication platforms.

WebRTC offer features beyond our present communication environment. The main and most attractive feature of WebRTC is “it’s free”. It is an open- source application programming interface (API) by Google and was first introduced in 2011. The main goal for why google introduced WebRTC is to deliver a free and available real-time media engine in all browsers.

Unlike other applications, WebRTC enables web services and operating systems to create real-time voice or video communication and can direct it to another WebRTC device or to a WebRTC media server. It is inbuilt in all modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera etc. Implementation of standard APIs from W3C and protocols from IETF add-on to the quality performance of WebRTC.

An amazing feature of WebRTC is the voice and video security. Quality RTP protocol (SRTP) serves the purpose of encrypting and authenticating voice and video communications. In addition to security, it provides high-quality voice and video streaming. It uses the Opus audio codec, which is based on Skype’s SILK codec technology and VP8 codec for video streaming.

The most excellent and brilliant feature that WebRTC provide is multiple media streaming. It also enables the negotiation of multiple media types and endpoints, which make use of efficient bandwidth delivering that produces best possible voice and video communications.

WebRTC reduces the application implementation time by developers through experiencing a streamlined development process. These are very few but important features and uses of WebRTC. Thus WebRTC, the Web Real Time Communication, apart from dictionary terms is a brilliant friend of application implementation.
