Azure Communication Services - Samples and Tools
Azure Communication Services are cloud-based services with REST APIs and client library SDKs to help you integrate communication into your applications. You can add communication features to your applications without being an expert in communication technologies such as media encoding and real-time networking.

This repo is not open to contributions, though many of the linked SDKs are open-source and allow contributions.
Conceptual Documentation, Quickstarts, Samples, and Help
Azure Communication Services capabilities are conceptually organized into eight areas. Most areas have fully open-sourced SDKs programmed against published REST APIs that you can use directly over the Internet. Development of Web-based Calling and Chat applications can be accelerated by Azure Communication Services UI libraries. The UI library provides production-ready UI components that you can drop into your applications.
Communication Services APIs are documented alongside other Azure REST APIs in docs.microsoft.com. This documentation will tell you how to structure your HTTP messages and offers guidance for using Postman. REST interface documentation is also offered in Swagger format on GitHub.
