Photon Voice compared to DFvoice?

What are the pros and cons of using Photon Voice or DFVoice (which also uses Photon)?

A side question, when one uses Photon Voice, an accompanying "_voice_" room is created. This would increase the cost if one already bought a Photon plan, right? Also, is the "_voice_" room route optimized for audio transmission or is it just like a normal Photon room?

Many thanks!

  • Hi @Philipp,

    I apologize about the delay. I'm not familiar with DFVoice so I'll let someone else answer the first question.

    Photon Realtime and Photon Voice are two distinct products: each one needs its own application that requires a separate plan/subscription.
  • Thanks John.

    One remaining question: Is the "_voice_" room route optimized for audio transmission or is it just like a normal Photon room? Thanks!
  • It's a normal room.
  • Thanks!
  • To give you some input on the "price" question: Photon Voice is an add-on subscription price, because it also means a lot of extra traffic. Usually, just one person talks, right, but it's sent with higher frequency to everyone who listens.
