Introducing Cisco Spark SDKs and Widgets!May 23, 2017
One of the main benefit to both the SDKs and widgets is the simplified user experience. For example, let’s say you have a banking application. You want to use the secure communication capabilities of Cisco Spark so end users can connect directly with your support team. Previously, you had to send users out of your application to achieve this connection. Now, users never have to leave your application.
Cisco Spark Widgets
Our new widgets handle the heavy lifting of coordinating between your application and the Cisco Spark APIs, and provide components of the Cisco Spark experience without you having to build all of the front-end UI yourself.
Two widgets are available for immediate use:
- Space Widget – 1:1 audio/video calling, 1:1 and space messaging
- Recents Widget – list of recent Cisco Spark conversations
Embed a Cisco Spark space in your app or connect two single users so they can exchange messages, share files, or conduct a video call. To speed deployment, the widgets come with Cisco Spark UI elements built in, enabling you to focus on the functionality.
Cisco Spark SDKs
We want to make it easy for you to add collaboration capabilities inside all your workflows. While these new releases are an exciting step in that direction, we’re already expanding the functionality and supported platforms. Android support is in the works, as are powerful new features.
