Twilio vs. Zoom vs. Dyte

Twilio recommends Zoom SDK for migration. But, does a 75MB SDK, limited features and no customization make sense?


4 places (of many) where Zoom SDK falls short

Limited Scalability

The maximum number of users supported in a real-time meeting is significantly low at only 300 participants, as compared to 15,000 with Twilio Video and Dyte.

Does Not Use WebRTC

Can complicate WebRTC connections, leading to issues with real-time call quality, camera input on custom browsers & features like acoustic echo cancellation.

No End-to-End Encryption

Surprising, isn't it? Zoom SDK does not offer the basic security feature that prevents potential interception or unauthorized access during transmission.

No AI/ML Middleware Support

Limits executing AI/ML algorithms for media processing tasks like noise reduction or adding advanced features like custom filters, transcription services, etc.

Customers trust Dyte over Zoom SDK

Know why developers and product teams at leading organisations choose Dyte over Zoom SDK.

The manual grind of managing meetings and analytics and Zoom's operational complexities tested our resilience. Dyte significantly improved our students' experience. The switch made our app lighter, live video more stable at scale.

We do over 15,000 sessions with them every week (~165 million minutes a year). In the past, we have also tried Zoom SDKs, Jitsi, etc. but didn't find any luck due to their low server-uptime. 10/10 would recommend Dyte.
