Is it possible to use the Cloud Communications APIs like Twilio's (https://www.twilio.com/video) APIs to enable audio and video calling within my web app, without having the users go to the MS Teams app (web or desktop)?

I want to build a web app that is similar to MS Teams where users can have meetings with audio, video and screen sharing. I want to use the Cloud Communications API to build this app. And from reading the API documentation, I understand that this is not possible. Have I understood correctly?

We are checking internally we will get back to you.
Okay. We also found out about Azure Communication Services. We are exploring that too as that service has most of features that we are looking for.
Currently you need to use Graph Api to schedule call/meeting. Please check this [docs](https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/call?view=graph-rest-1.0) for more info
