In order to provide a personalized experience for users in your audio/video calling project, Tencent RTC Call (TUICallKit) offers a custom service to set your exclusive nickname and avatar photo. You could integrate the Tencent RTC Call (TUICallKit) component into your Flutter project (Flutter 3.0 or higher version).

Video Tutorial

To customize your nickname or profile photo, use the following API for update:

TUIResult result = TUICallKit.instance.setSelfInfo('userName', 'url:********');

Step 0: Hand login asynchronous flow

As the login function in the Tencent RTC Call (TUICallKit)'s interface is an asynchronous flow, we need to make a simple modification to the relevant code as shown in the following steps:

  • Add 'async' after the parentheses of the ' _initCallkit() ' function.
  • Add 'await' before the ' TUICallKit.instance.login() ' function in the body of the ' _initCallkit() ' function.

Step 1: Customize personal information

Use the API provided by Tencent RTC (TUICallKit) to modify the nickname and avatar. Let's copy this line of code and navigate to your Flutter project to paste it.

TUIResult result = TUICallKit.instance.setSelfInfo('userName', 'url:********');

Then pass our user nickname and avatar URL in string format, like this:

This is just an example, and you can modify them to your liking as long as you pass them in string format. Now the interface call is ready.

step 2:Run your program

Let's compile and run your code. And then you can open another device and initiate an audio call to "6666".

After connecting, you will see the basic information of "6666" with "TUICalkit" as his nickname and the newly set avatar as the URL we just passed in on the other device. On the "6666" device, you will see that the user who initiated the audio call has the nickname "8888" and his avatar is displayed.
