How to know how many users are in a given public channel

Greetings from Chile!
My Team and I are developing an online game and area using photon chat as our chat system, so far great!
but we area stumbling around a a way to "load balance" the global/public chat.
The ideal solution is when a client logsin he checks his game logic list of global chat channels and sees wich one is less crouded and joins that one. But Searching through Docs and Forums I cannot find a way to get the numeric amount of players subscribed to a channel (we dont need name nor id nor anything, just a simple number with the amount of players).
Am I missing something from the documments?.
Thank you in advance,
Regards

Felipe

  • Hi, Felepe
    No, you did not
    right now there is no way to do this.

    we will add this in furture releases

  • Hey,

    We really need a way to ask for the amount of subscribers on a given channel.

    Bonus points if you make events or callbacks that are invoked when a player joins and leaves a given channel, e.g. so we can write "X joined channel".
  • Hi @DeBock,

    Thank you for choosing Photon!

    Those features are available but experimental only.

    Hi @JohnTube

    Thanks for your swift response. Do you have any indication for when we could expect these features to be out of 'experimental only'?

    No sorry I don't. From my own experience, people request this then they don't use it or they don't bother giving feedback about it. And I can't promise or guarantee anything.
