Chapter 1. Video Calls


This guide is written and tested based on the Video Calls 1.2 which is compatible with eXo Platform 4.2.

Video Calls delivers a real-time video chat experience that allows your company to facilitate the direct communication among individuals and groups, and boost the employee engagement and productivity. Here is what Video Calls brings to you:

  • 1 to 1 and Group Calls: Participate in face-to-face meetings with high-resolution video calls.

  • Platform-wide integration: Initiate video calls from anywhere you can see activities of co-workers, for example, activity streams, profile page or connection page.

  • Screen sharing: Share your desktop to your co-workers for the easier collaboration.

  • Fine-grained permissions: Easily assign the access permissions for video calls to users and groups, and the call types (1 to 1 Calls, or Group Calls, or both).


The Video Calls feature is currently available for the Enterprise edition and works for Mac and Windows users. Since Video Calls 1.2.0, it also supports Chrome on Linux.
