See how our platform is evolving. Keep track of new features, API versions and bug fixes.

2017-11-23 | SINCH SDK ANDROID 3.12.3

  • Improved Wifi/Cellular handover for App calling

2017-11-06 | SINCH SDK ANDROID 3.12.2

  • Minor video capture bug fix.

2017-11-03 | SINCH SDK ANDROID 3.12.1

  • Improved robustness of video pipeline.
  • De-coupled capturing and preview (now it’s possible dynamically show/hide preview w/o affecting capturing and sending video).
  • Added new VideoController’s API: setVideoFrameListener() to set a callback that receives remote video frames w/o affecting rendering. Allows to do “screenshot” of remote video.

Allows processing of local video before sending it. Does not affect rendering of local preview. Sample application “sinch-rtc-sample-video-filter” is added for demonstration.
  • Managed push notifications migrated from GCM to FCM (Google -> Firebase Cloud Messaging).
