After a year of beta testing its in-app messaging platform, Pusher has released Chatkit to general availability. Chatkit includes a set of APIs that comes loaded with a number of features that users have come to expect from any mainstream chat service (typing indicators, file sharing, and more).
In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create an AI-powered voice chat interface in the browser. You’ll use the Web Speech API to listen to the user’s voice and reply with a synthetic voice. Tomomi Imura over at Smashing Magazine takes you thru every step so you can go from zero to hero in no time.
