If you are wondering, we use this for: “Peer-to-peer for 1 to 1″. It does what it says: every time there are only two participants in a call, instead of using Jitsi Videobridge, Jitsi Meet will now connect them directly. It’s as simple as that.

There are two major wins with this feature. First and foremost, given how one-to-one calls often represent the majority of the conferences on most RTC services, taking them off of your infrastructure (NAT permitting) means that you don’t have to provide any resources for them. If you are running a Jitsi installation for a single company or group, this means that you now need even less hardware or even smaller VMs to service it. If, on the other hand, you are a large scale provider with thousands or tens of thousands of daily calls, this should significantly reduce your bill.
