A WebRTC module for React Native. - Support iOS / macOS / Android. - Support Video / Audio / Data Channels.

NOTE for Expo users: this plugin doesn't work unless you eject.


Everyone is welcome to our Discourse community to discuss any React Native and WebRTC related topics.

WebRTC Revision

  • Currently used revision: M87
  • Supported architectures
    • Android: armeabi-v7a, arm64-v8a, x86, x86_64
    • iOS: arm64, x86_64 (for bitcode support, run this script)
    • macOS: x86_64



Now, you can use WebRTC like in browser. In your

, you can require WebRTC to import RTCPeerConnection, RTCSessionDescription, etc.
import {
} from 'react-native-webrtc';

Anything about using RTCPeerConnection, RTCSessionDescription and RTCIceCandidate is like browser. Support most WebRTC APIs, please see the Document.

const configuration = {"iceServers": [{"url": ""}]};
const pc = new RTCPeerConnection(configuration);

let isFront = true; mediaDevices.enumerateDevices().then(sourceInfos => { console.log(sourceInfos); let videoSourceId; for (let i = 0; i < sourceInfos.length; i++) { const sourceInfo = sourceInfos[i]; if(sourceInfo.kind == "videoinput" && sourceInfo.facing == (isFront ? "front" : "environment")) { videoSourceId = sourceInfo.deviceId; } } mediaDevices.getUserMedia({ audio: true, video: { width: 640, height: 480, frameRate: 30, facingMode: (isFront ? "user" : "environment"), deviceId: videoSourceId } }) .then(stream => { // Got stream! }) .catch(error => { // Log error }); });

pc.createOffer().then(desc => { pc.setLocalDescription(desc).then(() => { // Send pc.localDescription to peer }); });

pc.onicecandidate = function (event) { // send event.candidate to peer };

// also support setRemoteDescription, createAnswer, addIceCandidate, onnegotiationneeded, oniceconnectionstatechange, onsignalingstatechange, onaddstream


However, render video stream should be used by React way.

Rendering RTCView.

| Name | Type | Default | Description | | ------------------------------ | ---------------- | ------------------------- | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ | | mirror | boolean | false | Indicates whether the video specified by "streamURL" should be mirrored during rendering. Commonly, applications choose to mirror theuser-facing camera. | | objectFit | string | 'contain' | Can be contain or cover | | streamURL | string | '' | This is mandatory | | zOrder | number | 0 | Similarly to zIndex |

Custom APIs


By calling this method the JavaScript global namespace gets "polluted" with the following additions:

  • navigator.mediaDevices.getUserMedia()
  • navigator.mediaDevices.enumerateDevices()
  • window.RTCPeerConnection
  • window.RTCIceCandidate
  • window.RTCSessionDescription
  • window.MediaStream
  • window.MediaStreamTrack

This is useful to make existing WebRTC JavaScript libraries (that expect those globals to exist) work with react-native-webrtc.


This function allows to switch the front / back cameras in a video track on the fly, without the need for adding / removing tracks or renegotiating.


Starting with version 1.67, when setting a local video track's enabled state to

, the camera will be closed, but the track will remain alive. Setting it back to
will re-enable the camera.
