Communications-as-a-service firm Agora.io launches mobile gaming voice chat SDK

Santa Clara-based "communications-as-a-service" firm Agora.io has launched its new SDK for voice chat in mobile games called the Agora Mobile Gaming SDK.

The SDK can be used to add real-time voice chat with "only a couple lines of code". It is compatible with Unity, Unreal, Cocos, and SpriteKit, and other game engines.

It has been designed with low-power consumption in mind to avoid draining device battery, as well as low CPU and RAM usage. Agora's SDK also supports tens of millions of active sessions with 99% availability.

Chatter chatter

"Gaming is one of the fastest-growing industries but game developers need to stay ahead of trends in order to remain relevant and competitive," said Tony Zhao, founder and CEO at Agora.io.

"Social and mobile gaming experiences will be at the core of tomorrow's top hits, so we're giving developers the tools to give their users exactly what they desire, in this case in-game voice chat."

Developers interested in implementing AMG SDK can find out more on Agora.io's website.
