Great news for the Arabic world! With our latest version that was just released, you can use the Gruveo Android app in Arabic.
Even though Gruveo was blocked in the UAE in February, there are still many Arabic users who love using Gruveo, One Call Number For All Your Communications, and would love it even more in their native language. The Gruveo for Android app now offers this option.
If you run a WordPress website, you'll be very excited to learn that supercharging it with a Gruveo call button is now easier than ever. With our new Gruveo Call Button plugin, adding the button to your WordPress site is now a simple matter of a couple of clicks — no HTML copying and pasting required!
With a Gruveo call button, your website visitors call you on your Gruveo handle with voice and video without having to leave your site. Callers don't need their own accounts, and the service works in all major browsers without installs.
Dear developers, we want to remind you that our Embed API is graduating from Beta on August 14, 2017. If you have been using the Gruveo Embed API since its early beta days and you only have an API secret without a corresponding client ID, you need to take action now!
First, you need to contact our Sales team as soon as possible. They will provide you with a client ID and a new API secret that will ensure your continued access to the API.
Second, you will need to update your code to use the current API authentication scheme. Please see Accessing Extended Mode in the developer documentation for details.
Please make sure to request your API client ID to be able to use the Embed API beyond August 14, 2017.
Yet more fantastic news for developers! We have just released the Gruveo SDK for Android and we want you to check it out.
The SDK lets you add a video chat screen to your app and communicate with it using a simple API. The screen comes with all user-facing controls already in place and is the quickest way to add video and voice chat to your Android app.
Not that long ago, we released the Favorites feature for our Android app, leaving the Gruveo for iOS app users a bit sad...but not for long. The Gruveo for iOS app now has the Favorites feature, too. And it’s also got the Recents feature!
The Recents feature shows you the whole call history—all incoming and outgoing calls. For each call, you can see the date and time of the call, the call room name or handle called, whether it was an incoming or outgoing call and how many Gruveo video or voice calls you have had using that particular call room/handle.
Dear developers, may we have your attention please?
Ahead of the Gruveo Embed API's graduation from beta, there are a few supercool new features we've recently added and would like to tell you more about.
Gruveo Embed API is a wonderfully easy way to add video and voice calling to your website in minutes. Yes, that's right! It only takes a couple of minutes because we serve you a fully cooked, ready-to-use solution. You don't need to be a coding superman to work with it either. Want to check it out?

Here's what's new in the Embed API:
We are happy to announce that our Embed API, initially announced in late 2015, is graduating from beta on August 14, 2017.
What does this mean for you? If you have been using the Gruveo Embed API since its early beta days and you only have an API secret without a client ID, read on. If you already have a client ID, then this announcement doesn't change anything for you.
As you may have heard, it was recently announced that the next version of the Safari browser for macOS and iOS, Safari 11, will support WebRTC – the real-time video and voice communication technology that Gruveo is built on.
Today, barely a month later, Gruveo brings official support for the upcoming Safari 11 on macOS and iOS to its web app. This means that after you update your iPhone or iPad to iOS 11 this September, you will be able to make video and voice calls with Gruveo by simply opening www.gruveo.com in Safari on your device.
We are very proud to share this awesome news with you today. The Google Play editorial team just put Gruveo on its list of Top 5 video calling apps - alongside Skype, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat and ooVoo. According to Google, the apps on the list "get it right" as far as video calling goes.
The reasons why the Google Play editorial team love Gruveo are:
As a Gruveo Android app user, you can now organize your most often called Gruveo rooms and @handles easily and have them on hand when you need to make a call. We have added a new Favorites tab into the Gruveo Android app, and made the Recents tab more useful.
The latest update of the Gruveo for Android app adds the Favorites tab, which lets you save your favorite Gruveo rooms and @handles for easy access.
