Enable Video Call (Android)

Last updated: 2021-01-04 15:03:40

    TUIKit 4.8.50 and later versions provide video and voice call features for one-to-one and group chats based on TRTC and support interconnection between iOS and Android platforms. To quickly integrate TUIKit video and voice call features, follow the steps described in this document.


    • In TUIKit 4.8.50 and later versions, the voice and video call features are integrated in the TUIKit component and designed based on the new signaling solution.
    • In versions earlier than TUIKit 4.8.50, the voice and video call features are integrated in the TUIKitDemo sample on the iOS client. If you use the voice and video call features of an earlier version, we do not recommend that you upgrade the version to avoid compatibility issues.

    Step 1: Enable the TRTC Service

    1. Log in to the IM console and click the target application card to go to the basic configuration page of the application.
    2. Click Activate in the Tencent Real-Time Communication (TRTC) area.
    3. In the dialog box that appears, click OK.
      The system will create a TRTC application with the same SDKAppID as the current IM application in the TRTC console. You can use the same account and authentication information for the two applications.

    Step 2: Configure the Engineering File

    We recommend that you use source code to integrate TUIKit so that you can modify the source code to meet your business requirements.

    implementation project(':tuikit')

    Step 3: Initialize TUIKit

    To initialize TUIKit, enter the SDKAppID generated in Step 1.

    TUIKitConfigs configs = TUIKit.getConfigs();
    TUIKit.init(this, SDKAPPID, configs);

    Step 4: Log In to TUIKit

    Call the login API provided by TUIKit to log in to IM. For more information on how to generate UserSig, see How to Generate Usersig.

    TUIKit.login(userID, userSig, new IUIKitCallBack() {
        public void onSuccess(Object data) {
            //Login successful
        public void onError(String module, final int code, final String desc) {
            // Login failed

    Step 5: Initiate a Video or Voice Call

    When you tap Video or Voice on the chat UI, TUIKit displays the call invitation UI and sends a call request to the peer.

    Step 6: Answer a Video or Voice Call

    • When an online user receives a call invitation, TUIKit displays the call accept UI. The user can answer or reject the call.

    • When an offline user receives a call invitation, offline push is required to wake up the app call UI. For more information about offline push, see Step 7.

    Step 7: Offline Push

    To implement offline push for voice and video calls, follow these steps:

    1. Configure offline push for the app. For more information, see Offline Push Configuration.
    2. Upgrade TUIKit to 4.9.1 or later.
    3. Use TUIKit to initiate a call invitation. An offline push message will be generated by default. For more information about the message generation logic, see the sendOnlineMessageWithOfflinePushInfo method in the TRTCAVCallImpl.java class.
    4. After the peer receives the offline push message, refer to the redirect method in the OfflineMessageDispatcher.java class to wake up the call UI.


    1. What should I be aware of if I have created the TRTC and IM SDKAppIDs and want to integrate the IM SDK and TRTC SDK at the same time?

    If you have created the TRTC and IM SDKAppIDs, you cannot use the same account or authentication information for these two applications. You need to generate a UserSig corresponding to the TRTC SDKAppID to perform authentication. For more information on how to generate UserSig, see How to Generate Usersig.
    After obtaining the TRTC SDKAppID and UserSig, you need to replace the corresponding values in the TRTCAVCallImpl source code.

     private void enterTRTCRoom() {
         TRTCCloudDef.TRTCParams TRTCParams = new TRTCCloudDef.TRTCParams(mSdkAppId, mCurUserId, mCurUserSig, mCurRoomID, "", "");

    2. How long is the default call invitation timeout time? How can I modify the default timeout time?

    The default call invitation timeout time is 30s. You can modify the TIME_OUT_COUNT field in TRTCAVCallImpl to customize the timeout time.

    3. Will an invitee receive a call invitation if the invitee goes offline and then online within the call invitation timeout time?

    • If the call invitation is initiated in a one-to-one chat, the invitee can receive the call invitation.
    • If the call invitation is initiated in a group chat, the invitee cannot receive the call invitation.
