Connect-Platform-2.0-BlogThis week we are expanding RingCentral’s platform for developers with new APIs, plus the version 1.0 release of SDKs for PHP and C#.

Since we announced the open beta release of the RingCentral Connect™ Platform in February, we have been happy to see a surge in interest from independent software vendors, as well as customers like Construction Monitor and 24HR Lockouts, who have built their own custom applications using the RingCentral application programming interface (API).

RingCentral offers its own integrations with prominent cloud platforms, including a recent update for and the introduction of one for Microsoft 365. Since the end of Q1 2015, RingCentral has more than tripled the number of registered developers and third party applications in production have grown significantly.  In addition, the number of API calls from third-parties has increase by more than 6X in the past quarter.  

Recent additions to the family include:

We are also happy to count Zoho as an early API development partner, and we look forward to adding many more. To simplify that process, we are releasing 1.0 versions of both the PHP and C# software developer kits (SDKs). While the API can be accessed from any language, using REST function calls, the SDKs shortcut the process.

An early version of the PHP SDK had previously been published to GitHub and has already been used as part of production applications. Now, it’s official, with a refined and expanded set of simplified methods for accessing RingCentral platform functions.

New features of the PHP SDK include:

This is our first release of an SDK for C#, an essential language for development on Microsoft’s .NET framework. With the C# API, we are answering a significant demand from customers and partners who build applications on the Windows platform. Because the C# API also includes support for the Xamarin cross-platform development framework, it can also be used to create iOS and Android apps.

Features of the C# SDK include:

Meanwhile, we have added two key API calls:

What we have achieved so far with the RingCentral Connect Platform is exciting, but there is much more to come. We look forward to bringing you more news about the API itself – and what our customers and partners are doing with it!
