Plugin setup

The first thing you need to do is to configure the plugin specifying your keys and your options.

Configure params
var configuration = Configuration(
      appID: "mAppId_xxx", // your mobile appId
      environment: Environment.sandbox(), // production()
      region: Region.europe(), // india(), us()
      logEnabled: true, // enable the logger
      tools: Tools(
          // by default no tools will be set
          chat: ChatToolConfiguration(
              audioCallOption: AudioCallOptions(
                  type: AudioCallType.audio, // audio or audioUpgradable
                      RecordingType.none), // none, manual or automatic
              videoCallOption: CallOptions(
                      RecordingType.none)), // none, manual or automatic
          feedback: true,
          fileShare: true,
          whiteboard: true,
          screenShare: ScreenShareToolConfiguration(
              inApp: true, // screenshare only the app
              wholeDevice: true)), // screenshare the whole device
      // optional you can set one or more of the following capabilities, by default callkit is enabled
      iosConfig: IosConfiguration(
          voipHandlingStrategy: VoipHandlingStrategy.automatic, // implement to be able to receive VoIPs
          callkit: CallKitConfiguration(
              enabled: true, // enable CallKit on iOS 10+
              appIconName: "logo_transparent", // optional but recommended
              ringtoneSoundName: "custom_ringtone.mp3"))); // optional

var kaleyraVideo = await KaleyraVideo.configure(configuration);

If screenShare.wholeDevice is set to true look here for the required additional setup.

Plugin listen for errors/events

To listen for events and/or errors register Check the documentation here for a complete list.


kaleyraVideo.events.onCallModuleStatusChanged = (status) => {};

iOS - VoIP Notifications

Setup required for VoIP notifications

If you desire to use VoIP notifications on iOS platform as first thing you should configure kaleyraVideo passing a config object as follow:

var configuration = Configuration(
      iosConfig: IosConfiguration(
          voipHandlingStrategy: VoipHandlingStrategy.automatic, 

var kaleyraVideo = await KaleyraVideo.configure(configuration);

The iOS project requires a little setup for use VoIP notifications. Here you can find a description of how the project should be configured.

Listening for VoIP push token

In order to get your device push token, you must listen for the KaleyraVideo.events.iOSVoipPushTokenUpdated event registering a callback as follows:

// The token is received in this listener only after calling kaleyraVideo.connect(_)
kaleyraVideo.events.oniOSVoipPushTokenUpdated = (token) => {
    // register the VoIP push token on your server

Warning: Make sure this listener is attached before calling kaleyraVideo.connect(_), otherwise the event reporting the device token could be missed.

The token provided in the callback is the string representation of your device token. Here's an example of a device token: dec105f879924349fd2fa9aa8bb8b70431d5f41d57bfa8e31a5d80a629774fd9

VoIP notification payload

Here you can find an example of how your VoIP notifications payload should be structured.

Plugin connect

To connect the plugin to the Kaleyra Video system you will need to provide a Session object. The session needs a userID and a function returning a Future


  • The userID should aready exists in our service. Your backend needs to create it by invoking this api create_user
  • The accessToken should be generated from your backend by invoking this api get_credentials. Be aware that it expires. The callback will be called multiple times every time a new token is needed to refresh the user session.
kaleyraVideo.connect(Session("usr_xxx", (userId) async {
    // get token for user_xxx
    return "jwt_xxx";

Start a call

To make a call you need to specify some params.

Start call params
    callees: ["usr_yyy", "usr_zzz"], //  an array of user ids of the users you want to call
    callType: CallType.audioVideo, // audio, audioUpgradable or audioVideo - the type of the call you want to start
    recordingType: RecordingType.none)); // none, manual or automatic

Start a chat

To make a chat you need to specify some params.

Start chat params
kaleyraVideo.startChat("usr_yyy");// the user_id of the user you want to create a chat with

Set user details

This method will allow you to set your user details DB from which the sdk will read when needed to show the information.

Be sure to have this always up to date, otherwise if an incoming call is received and the user is missing in this set the user ids will be printed on the UI.

    UserDetails(userID: "usr_yyy", firstName: "User1Name", lastName: "User1Surname"),
    UserDetails(userID: "usr_zzz", firstName: "User2Name", lastName: "User2Surname"),

Remove all user details

This method will allow you to remove all the user info from the local app DB.


Set user details format

This method will allow you to specify how you want your user details to be displayed.

Be aware that you can specify only keywords which exist in the UserDetails type.

For example: if you wish to show only the firstName while your dataset contains also the lastName you may change it here.

      userDetailsFormatDefault: "\${firstName} \${lastName}",
      androidNotification: "\${firstName} \${lastName}")); // optional if you wish to personalize the details in the notification.

Remove all the cached info in preferences and DBs


Android change display mode

This method is useful for use-cases where you need to show a prompt and don't want it to be invalidated by the call going into pip. For example: if you wish to show fingerprint dialog you should first put the current call in background, execute the fingerprint validation and then put back the call in foreground.

kaleyraVideo.setDisplayModeForCurrentCall(CallDisplayMode.background); // .foreground, .foregroundPictureInPicture or .background

Verify user

To verify a user for the current call.


iOS Podfile Setup

Please pay attention to the Podfile setup for your iOS application. Is required to add this to your Podfile:


iOS Broadcast Screen sharing

To enable whole device screen share is required and additional setup. Open the iOS Xcode project of your Flutter application and follow this guide. After completing the procedure described in the guide above you need to add to your Podfile this lines:

target 'BroadcastExtension' do

  pod 'BandyerBroadcastExtension'

Furthermore, to allow a correct configuration of the SDK it is necessary to create a file called "KaleyraVideoConfig.plist" and add it to the same target of the application. This file must have the following content:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">
  <string><!-- PUT HERE THE BUNDLE ID OF YOUR APP GROUP --></string>

iOS Notifications

The module supports on_call_incoming notification. You will need to set the voipHandlingStrategy and subscribe to iOSVoipPushTokenUpdated event to receive the voip token to use on your backend to notify the plugin.

Android Notifications

Supports only on_call_incoming and on_message_sent notification types.
