We offer a fully supported Daily Prebuilt user interface and additional lower-level APIs that give you total UI/UX flexibility. Start by cloning our sample repos. Change from prebuilt to custom at any time while still using the same APIs.

Add prebuilt calls in minutes

	
    <script src="https://unpkg.com/@daily-co/daily-js"></script>
    <script>
      callFrame = window.DailyIframe.createFrame();
      callFrame.join({ url: 'https://you.daily.co/hello' });
    </script>
	

Build custom video UI in hours

	
    const callObject = window.DailyIframe.createCallObject();
    callObject.on('participant-updated', (event) => {
      const p = event.participant;
      myCustomMediaStreamTracksHandler(p.user_id, p.videoTrack, p.audioTrack);
    });
    callObject.join({ url: 'https://you.daily.co/hello' });
	

For developers building custom video UI/UX. Take control of video and audio tracks. Daily call object gives you complete layout and workflow control.
