4 reasons Scenes is the best SendBird alternative

SendBird is an incomplete solution for social engagement.

More Than Just Chat + Call/Video APIs

SendBird is an API toolkit that enables you to integrate chat and voice/video call features into your application. Scenes on the other hand is a complete suite for social engagement and community building. In addition to chat & live audio/video, Scenes features multiple modes of interaction to engineer a social experience.

We give out APIs and SDKs as well.

LMS

Coin System & Gamification

Charlie Munger said, “Incentives are what drive human behaviour”. When you’re looking to give your users a social experience, rewards become the backbone for engagement.

Scenes has a built-in coin system that incentivizes users for certain actions they perform; eg: attending a live event, getting 5 likes on a forum post, etc. Gamification deepens the engagement by introducing a social status structure into the community by awarding special badges besides their profiles.

Powerful Roles and Permissions System

Be it status games or restricting access for channels, roles and permissions are extremely powerful tools you can leverage to customize your community, to your own needs. 

With Scenes, you can now tweak and create the social experience for your users that they truly deserve.

easy member management

WebView on Mobile Apps

SendBird is a strictly API based solution for chats and live audio/video. Scenes, however, in addition to APIs, provides WebView based solutions as well.

Depending on your requirement, WebView is much easier to maintain and since it runs on your mobile browser, it takes up minimal storage and thereby is more efficient than native solutions.
