    There's no best one. I think you should find out which one is the most suitable for you.
    And there're so many libraries you could choose i.e.

  • In the above link they had mentioned a solution with signalR, can we make video call and voice calls with signalR?

    @Swarupa2398 You can have a try. There're many samples on the internet.

    Cometchat is good choice,but Mirrorfly is better than cometchat. Mirrorfly is a real-time messaging solution that provides businesses and organizations the tools they need to create their own chat app for mobile and web-based platforms as well as manage all their in-app conversations from a single, unified location. The software equips users with tools they need to streamline, automate, and facilitate real-time conversations via messaging, voice call, and video call.
