Voice 2 - Early Access

Hi Everyone,

We are updating our early access package of the upcoming major Photon Voice version (will be referred to as Photon Voice 2).
This features major internal changes, API changes, performance and optimization improvements but keeps the same design pattern you know and expect from Photon Voice 1/Classic.

Few things to know:

- Unity 5.6.0 is the minimal version

What's new:
  • Improved API and better Unity components.
  • Improved Audio Quality thanks to the new WebRTC based DSP (Echo Cancellation, Noise Suppression, Automatic Gain Control, etc.): see DemoVoiceUI for testing!
  • Compatibility with PUN2 (version v2.2.1).
  • Easier integration with PUN2: see DemoVoicePun.
  • PUN2 demos and PhotonChatAPI included with Photon Voice 2 (which wasn't the case with Photon Voice 1).
  • Flexibility: since now it is decoupled from PUN2, it can be used (always inside Unity) with Photon Realtime, Photon Bolt, Photon Chat or even standalone.
  • New WebRTC based DSP.
  • New/updated demos.
  • Photon Voice has its own namespace to avoid clash with other assets.
  • Work-in-progress documentation: https://doc.photonengine.com/en-us/voice/v2
  • Work-in-progress reference API: http://doc-api.photonengine.com/en/voice/v2
We welcome your feedback on this, as always!

Simply post in this thread.

  • Thanks! Good work.
  • Do custom audio sources work with this version?
  • I may have found a bug in this early release when running the DemoVoicePun zombunnie example. When I run the scene the first time everything is fine. But once I exit out of play mode and try running it again Unity freezes up and I have to go into task manager to close the program. This happens sometimes on this example and happens almost every time in my own project after connecting to Photon Voice.
    I'm guessing there's a running thread that isn't terminated when I exit play mode? I'm running Unity 2018.2.3f1.
  • Hi @tavilad

    Yes, same as before (Photon Voice 1).


    Hi @CheeseBrownie,

    Thank you for choosing Photon and for your report!
    Let's keep the discussion about the freezing in here.
  • Closing this as Photon Voice 2 was already released sooner than expected.
