Create join links with room codes

What's this blog post about?

Live video experiences have become increasingly popular, with users joining through meeting links found in various platforms such as emails and WhatsApp messages. To simplify these experiences, Room Codes have been launched to quickly launch and go-live with 100ms Prebuilt and custom (self-hosted) room links. Room Codes are unique short codes that represent a room id/role combination, allowing users to join rooms with their intended role permissions. These can be used for both Prebuilt and Custom UI solutions, enabling seamless integration of video conferencing applications. Additionally, Room Code Authentication allows for secure joining of rooms without the need for an auth token server at the user's end.
