Is it possible to have Browser based conference on mobile. Wirhout using native app.

Thanks. If the browser based version is embedded in a website of mine will that show on a mobile app or will it force the user of the native app?
Thanks

Then you’d need to rebuild the apps.

If you have deeper changes you can build the app yourself no problem, see: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/android/README.md and https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/ios/README.md

You can request the desktop version of the site (in Chrome you have
it in the dropdown menu), although the user experience will be
suboptimal. The app works way better, but if there is no other way,
the desktop version is a way to get in the call.

I think it should be noted that for this to work, he will need to build
his own version of Jitsi Meet having made some changes to the code
previously, didn't it?

Kind regards,

If you request the desktop version, it just treats your browser as a
desktop one. No code changes, it's not related to asking for native app
usage -- it's just a desktop version, tucked into a small mobile
screen; that's why I said it's suboptimal experience and it's not nice
for everyday use.

OTOH if you want a mobile web version (not the desktop one), it's not
possible. On mobile one has two choices -- native app (vanilla or
customized) which works really nice and desktop version that can be
used in emergency when there is no other option. I strongly recommend
the former.

The last time I tried to disable the use of the mobile application in
Jitsi Meet, when a user tried to access with the browser, s/he got a
screen saying "Video chat is not available on mobile".

This was a consequence of Jitsi Meet doing a check of the device that is
accessing and when finding that it was Android or iOS, it showed that
screen that made direct use impossible. That's why it was necessary to
modify the code in Jitsi Meet which does the checking of mobile devices.

I thought that the same behavior was still maintained.

Kind regards,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

You're not reading me right, what I mean is loading the
_desktop_version_ of the site.

In mobile Chrome (for example) you have the menu option to load the
desktop version, the browser pretends to be a desktop Chrome and loads
the _desktop_ version. It's not comfortable to use it on small screens,
that's why it's just a hack when one has no option to use the app.

You're right about everything else, it's just not what I was referring
to :slight_smile:
