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? Click here to learn more.
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.
Thanks to its seemingly endless benefits, video calling is becoming more and more popular among business professionals. There are a few well-known apps that provide video calling and we’re pretty sure you’ve tried at least one or two.
Just as with everything in life, there are plenty of options when it comes to recording your video calls. Some are better, some worse, some work for bigger companies, and some are perfect for small teams. There are lots of tools, tips and tricks to make things easier and quicker. But how do you know which software or app is best for you and your company?
To help you out with the decision making, we’ve created this guide explaining how to make call recordings with Google Hangouts, Skype and other apps. We concentrate on the most popular video calling apps and outline how you can successfully record your video calls with them.
If you don't have your Gruveo button, you’re missing out on something awesome.
Just to remind you: with the Gruveo button, people call you on your Gruveo @handle right from your website with one click on, well, the button.
We released this handy little button a couple of weeks ago, so if you have a Gruveo @handle and use it for business, you should have it up and running on your website by now.
If you don't, then here's a Help Center article titled What Is The Gruveo Call Button? that covers everything about the button.
If getting your button has just slipped through the cracks of your busy business life, click here to get it now and start enjoying all the benefits it brings to other businesses.
Remember—there is a comments section below for your thoughts and questions, so please don't hesitate to use it. You can “like” the article if you find it helpful, too.
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.
We want to remind you to update the Gruveo app on all your mobile devices. If you haven't done so already, now’s your chance!
As you know, we are retiring support for all the older versions of Gruveo apps for iOS and Android tomorrow (June 23, 2017). The web application is updated automatically but you need to update your Gruveo apps for iOS and Android yourself.

If you have a business, then you have a website. And if you have a website, then you have a Contacts page. Being easily reachable is a must, and you know it.
Registering a Gruveo handle is a logical step towards that. Including your handle on your website and all other communication tools—so that clients can reach you—is the next one. But if you've already completed these steps, what more can you do to help people reach you even more easily?
We have great news! We took the simplicity of making Gruveo calls one step further by creating the Gruveo button: a click-to-call button that automatically starts a call on your Gruveo handle. Simple as that!
