RingCentral Video REST API and Client SDKs are in beta

The RingCentral Video REST API and Client SDKs are currently in beta. Developers should be aware of the following:

  • Their feature sets are not reflective of the full scope currently planned.
  • Backwards compatibility is not guaranteed from one release to the next during the beta period. Changes can be introduced at any time that may impact your applications with little notice.
RingCentral Video Client SDK will be a paid product

During the beta and/or during development of your application, the RingCentral Client SDK is free to use. However, once the product is GA, the RCV Client SDK will be a paid product. Developers will be charged on a participant minute basis. In addition, the RCV Client SDK makes use of RingCentral's Artificial Intelligence APIs which may have costs of their own.
