Supported Environments

This document lists compatible platforms and operating systems for each Dolby.io Communications product. For more information, contact the Dolby.io Communications API support team.

Web SDK

The Dolby.io Communications SDK for Web is compatible with Electron 24.4.0+ and the following browsers:

  • Chrome 113+
  • Edge 113+
  • Firefox 113+
  • Safari 16.5+

Note:

  • Microsoft Edge may work on macOS but has not been extensively tested and is not supported.
  • Chrome and Safari with WebKitWebView may work on iOS but have not been extensively tested and are not supported.

Prior browser versions may work, however, we cannot guarantee full functionality. We strongly recommend upgrading to the latest supported browser version to optimize your experience. We test the supported browser platforms against current and prior versions and will keep this document updated for minimum supported browser versions.

The Dolby Voice Codec (DVC), which is available in Dolby Voice conferences is supported only on Chrome and Edge on desktop operating systems. Using a different browser or a mobile operating system triggers the SDK to use Opus.

The following table presents the available codecs on the specific operating systems and browsers:

Supported operating system Supported browser
Chrome Edge Firefox Safari
Windows DVC or Opus DVC or Opus Opus N/A
macOS DVC or Opus DVC or Opus Opus Opus
Android Opus* X N/A N/A
iOS X X X Opus

* For Chrome compatibility with Android, contact Google for more information. The minimum supported Chrome version may not be compatible with earlier versions of Android.

The use of video processing requires using a desktop operating system with Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) acceleration and meeting the following minimum hardware requirements:

  • i5 dual-core CPU
  • 8GB of RAM
  • 64-bit operating system

Note

Simultaneous use of a few compute-intensive features, such as DVC, Music mode, video processing, Simulcast, and Video Forwarding, requires i7+ CPU with a GPU to ensure high-quality audio and low-latency video. For the best experience, we recommend using either Chrome or Edge browser.
