Can Firefox Hello be used for group conversations?

Posted

Firefox is heavily used at my company and would like to add Firefox Hello for webinars and training for our field employees. Can this be done? Multiple users in one conversation in Firefox Hello?

hi Pasquell31, at the moment firefox hello can only be used for a direct conversation between two people. multiparty video-conferencing is on the long-term roadmap but it might still take a lot of engineering (firefox hello is based on the webrtc standard which is a peer-to-peer protocol between two machines only - multiparty calls might be a rather tricky thing to figure out on this basis)
