Changelog #006

Introducing call logs and metrics

All Daily calls now expose logs and metrics, so you can dig into your video call quality.

  • Logs provide a record of the events that take place during a call.
  • Metrics are WebRTC stats that help you understand and characterize video call quality and performance. You can view these new features either in your dashboard or through the new /logs endpoint.

Dashboard

In the recently launched Sessions tab, you can now explore an individual participant’s session data. There you’ll find their call logs and metrics, along with other participant details.

/logs

The /logs endpoint returns even more granular detail about your calls, including track level details. Check out a walkthrough on our blog, see the endpoint in action through the Daily Call Explorer, or read our full documentation.

react-native-daily-js (public beta)

react-native-daily-js gives React Native developers access to the same APIs and server-side infrastructure that powers daily-js web calls. It:

  • Brings the Daily call object to mobile devices, so developers can access call primitives, respond to call events, and build entirely custom, native video chat experiences.
  • Handles connections between callers, including all the quirks that can come up when participants are on different browsers and devices.
  • Provides access to participants’ network stats, enabling call-quality insights.
