To enable interoperability means enabling real-time audio and video call services by integrating SDKs of different platforms in the app. Users of the app can then join the same channel and interoperate with others using a mobile device (iOS or Android), a desktop device (Windows or macOS), or a web browser or web app.


Ensure that you prepared the development environment. See Integrate the SDK.

To enable interoperability between a mobile device and a web browser or app, you need to adjust the settings on both platforms. In the communication profile, interoperability is enabled by default.

  • On the mobile device, call the enableWebSdkInteroperability method.

      // java
      // Ensure that this method is called from the native side to interoperate with the Web SDK.
  • For the Web, in the createClient method, set the mode argument as 'live'.

      // javascript
      // Choose the current mode and codec.
      var client = AgoraRTC.createClient({ mode: 'live', codec: 'h264' });


  • The settings must be adjusted on both the mobile device and the web browser/app to enable interoperability.
  • Use this function only when the channel is in the live broadcast profile. Interoperability is enabled by default in the communication profile.
  • Given known test experience, if your scenario involves Safari, we recommend setting codec at the Web Client as h264; otherwise, set it as vp8.
