One of the most useful features Gruveo offers is undoubtedly the Gruveo handle (also known as a direct Gruveo code)—a registered Gruveo call room that's unique to you and works like a phone number, but more awesome. If you don't have your handle yet, go register one now! They're completely free.
If you've registered a Gruveo handle for your business, you've probably done so to make yourself more reachable to your clients, business partners and other parties. But for them to call you on Gruveo, you need to let them know that you have a handle in the first place, right?
There are many creative ways to let the world know about your Gruveo handle so let's take a more detailed look at them. As the title suggests, in this article we'll talk about having your Gruveo handle on your website.
Hentsū is a technology startup providing services to asset management and hedge fund clients. The firm focuses on applying technology solutions to the asset management industry.
Hentsū has built a transcontinental office portal with Gruveo, and we've asked the firm’s Marketing Manager, Christine Johnson, to tell us more about it.
Christine explained that it all began when Hentsū expanded to two offices in different countries and felt the need to connect the London and New York locations. After searching and trying out various other platforms, they decided to use Gruveo.
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.
