API video calls for TVs

Build 1-click video calls your TV can join

With the Daily.co API, developers can build custom video call workflows, which run on your TV hardware and talk to any computer or phone anywhere.

We're broadening our TV hardware support

Our team launched the first 1-click dedicated hardware system in 2016. Since then, we've grown to also support a dedicated always-on solution, standalone software, as well as an expanding API platform.

We're excited now to bring our API power to hardware. To broaden the hardware we support, we're releasing an API configuration any developer can run on supported hardware. Contact us to learn more.
