Spreed.ME enables you to meet, collaborate and train over the Internet, in a secure and easy way. It integrates in Nextcloud through the Spreed.ME app and while we’re working on expanding and evolving that app in the future, you can already get started! We’ve published a manual on integrating Spreed.ME as well as a video tutorial and we’re inviting everybody to give it a try and let us know what you think!
Spreed.ME and secure video and audio chat
Spreed.ME uses a technology called “WebRTC” which allows browsers to make direct, peer to peer connections between each other. These are fully end to end encrypted, both the audio/video and the chat. This means that it is entirely impossible for anyone to eaves-drop on the conversation, including the server administrator!
User handling is integrated in Nextcloud so you will show up with avatar and user names all set up. You can also invite people without a user account to a call by creating a temporary password for a user (with the key icon). You will get a link you can give to them to join you in a call. You don’t have to enbable this ability, though and you can also restrict the usage of Spreed.ME to a specific user group if you like!

As part of Schleswig-Holstein's state digitization strategy, the state chancellery has announced they will work with Nextcloud to develop AI for working with government documents. This comes just after we announced the first private AI assistant last weekend with Hub 6. The German state already uses Nextcloud and their AI strategy aligns with our work on ethical, local AI technologies.
Over the last year, AI has become a popular topic. Some is hype, some is substance. Some is good, some is bad. We want to give you the good, not the bad, and ignore the hype! AI has a ton of opportunity – but also risk. So we put you in control – off by […]
The serious security flaws in ownCloud (now owned by Kiteworks) do NOT affect Nextcloud. We have strict security processes in place, and do not ship test data from libraries that can cause security breaches.
