What is the difference between video and voice call in Azure Communication Services apart from just video session?


I am trying to implement Azure Communication Services in my application. However, I am a bit confused between voice and video call. What is the difference between both of them apart from the visual communication? We can turn off the video and would it be the same as voice call then or are there any other differences?

    Sure, got your point, My sincere apologize for inconvenience with this issue, upon further investigation and consultation its cleared that turning off video will change the bandwidth.

    And to clarify fundamentally there is no difference between video and voice calling. It’s the same call that’s happening, you can transit video data or audio data or both in the call.

    If you require any further clarification or assistance on this please let us know.
