Overview

Vonage Client SDK allows you to build Programmable Conversation applications.

Using the Conversation API and the Client SDK you can build complete applications that feature two-way voice and messaging communications. Whereas the Conversation API can be used directly to build out the backend of your Programmable Conversation application, the Client SDK enables you to quickly build the client-side application. The backend usually deals with tasks such as managing users in a database, the generation of tokens for those users, and the creation of the Conversations. The client-side provides methods to log users into Vonage, and handle the various Events that are generated as communication takes place. Other client-side functions include generating member invites if required, displaying typing indicators, and handling voice call operations such as inbound call, making a call, a user hanging up, and so on.
