Currently, Dyte is facilitating millions of minutes of live video calls each month.

It’s our mission to provide app developers with an easy-to-use interface so that they can focus on the customer user experience and not worry about the technology or infrastructure challenges of building and supporting live audio and video. Using live video and audio for work is not only the new normal, but it’s imperative that the future of work is built out and thought out carefully. People need to be able to multitask, share and integrate their business needs while being able to talk with colleagues and clients.” said Abhishek Kankani, Co-founder and CEO of Dyte.
