Detect when user is talking with VoiceDetection

I've activated VoiceDetection and regulated the threshold accordingly. It works well, I can clearly hear my voice being transmitted when talking and transmission being put on hold during silence. However, I need to fire some events connected to when the user is talking and I'm not able to do so.

These are my current Recorder settings -->

And this is the code I'm using to detect when the user is talking:
public class VoiceEvents : MonoBehaviour
    Recorder recorder;
    PhotonVoiceView voiceView;

    // Start is called before the first frame update
    void Start()
        // Audio is not transmitted by default
        recorder = GetComponent<Recorder>();
        voiceView = GetComponent<PhotonVoiceView>();
        // recorder.TransmitEnabled = false;

    // Update is called once per frame
    void Update()

        if (recorder.TransmitEnabled) {
        } else {

My log is showing "Talking" all the time even during silence.

- Photon Voice FREE 1.23


  • Hi @BFX,

    Make sure Photon Voice version is correct!
    It should be 2.15 and not 1.23.

    You could use Recorder.VoiceDetector.Detected or Recorder.VoiceDetector.OnDetected.
    Or Recorder.IsCurrentlyTransmitting.

    By the way, you could get the Recorder in use from PhotonVoiceView.RecorderInUse.
  • Thanks a lot. We updated it and using Recorder.IsCurrentlyTransmitting. Now it's working well.
