Deprecation notice

Dolby.io Communications SDK for Desktop has been deprecated. For building native desktop applications, we recommend using the vanilla Electron framework with the latest Web Client SDK.

Dolby.io Communications SDK for Desktop allows creating native desktop applications for video conferencing using only JavaScript. Combined with the Dolby.io Communications SDK for Web, this modified Electron open-source framework allows you to create native desktop applications from a web application. The Desktop SDK also supports the Dolby Voice Client codec to provide high audio quality and introduces video filters that allow you to blur the participants' backgrounds, or replace the participants' backgrounds with selected images.


License Note

The Desktop SDK is built using the Electron framework. Electron includes other libraries, notably FFMpeg. The libraries included are provided solely as a convenience and are licensed separately from the Desktop SDK and acceptance of the Dolby license does not cover these third-party libraries. See the “Native_Desktop_SDK_Third_Party_Software.html” file in the SDK package for the licenses covering these libraries.

The Desktop SDK is compatible with the following operating systems:

  • Microsoft Windows 10, 64 bit
  • Apple macOS 10.15 and 11, 64 bit
