Technological overhaulTo address the initial technical challenges, we transitioned from Twilio to WebRTC for our calling technology. This change provided a more stable and efficient backbone for audio communications, enhancing the overall user experience.
checkmark
Audio-only focusWe made a strategic decision to eliminate video chat capabilities, focusing solely on audio. This significantly reduced the risk of inappropriate content and abuse, aligning with our commitment to user safety and comfort.
checkmark
Instant messagingTo provide our users with a smooth experience we’ve migrated messaging to the self-hosted solution, which allows us to support heavy and  fast user interactions, and scale the system on demand.

App redesignIn 2024, Parlor underwent a comprehensive redesign to modernize its look and feel. This redesign not only made the app more attractive but also more intuitive, making it easier for new users to navigate and engage.
