Quick start

  • The Spymaster gives verbal one-word hint and a number to their team. The word is the hint players use to associate with their team's target words. The number indicates the number of words the hint ties together.
  • Players try to guess the Spymaster's hinted words, while avoiding the words of the other team.
  • Once Players have guessed the number of words given by their Spymaster, Players can click "End Turn", so the other team can guess their words.
  • The first team with no words left to guess wins

About this site

This site was created by Daily to showcase the custom video chat capabilities of our WebRTC APIs We were inspired by the board game Codenames&trade and created an online version with Daily video chat built-in. Codenames™ is a popular game to play on Zoom with coworkers, but since we work with developing video conferencing APIs, we thought a social game would be a perfect candidtate to embed our video call capabilities into it.

We at Daily have created this demo to show how easy it is to add video chat capabilities to any application. We have video SDKs for Android, iOS, JavaScript, React Native, and more. We have many more WebRTC demos to give you an idea of what is possible with fully customizable and embedable real-time video.
