How can I determine whether a call is an audio call or a video call?
In real-time audio or video communication, you can use the Agora Signaling SDK or the Agora Video SDK to determine whether an incoming or ongoing call is an audio call or a video call.
Before a call
If you need to determine and send the call type to the receiver before a call, ensure that you have integrated the Signaling SDK and the Video SDK. Refer to the following articles to learn more about integration:
Complete the following steps to determine the call type:
- When the caller sends a call, use the Call Invitation API of the Signaling SDK to send a call invitation to the callee.
sendMessageToPeerto send the call type to the callee via peer-to-peer message. The callee gets the call type from the received peer-to-peer message.
After a call
If you need to determine and send the call type to the receiver during a call, ensure that you have integrated the Video SDK. Refer to the following article:
During a call, the receiver can determine the call type according to the following guideline:
- If the receiver receives the onRemoteVideoStateChange callback, the current call is a video call.
- If the receiver does not receive the onRemoteVideoStateChange callback and receives the onRemoteAudioStateChange callback, the current call is an audio call.
