Xiaomi’s real-time video call provider Agora.io announced on Monday that they will be opening their software up to the general public to allow real-time voice and video communication. Using Agora Video, people can deliver premium multi-party video conferencing globally among mobile devices.

“As more organizations and application developers embed video and voice directly into their workflows, they quickly discover the quality and reliability challenges of simply relying on the internet for real-time communications,” Agora.io’s founder and CEO Tony Zhao said in a statement.

Agora’s software is currently used by Xiaomi and HelloTalk, an international language learning community. The Agora-powered Mi Video Call was introduced to the public at the Mobile World Congress on February 24th 2016.
