I am trying to follow the guide of Azure Communication Services to implement it in a web application. So far according to my knowledge, ACS has these features:

  1. Voice call
  2. Video call
  3. Screen share

But is there no remote control feature. Maybe I was not able to find it but if it is there, can you provide a link?

and if not, what is the way to implement it?

    @Saif Thanks for your patience on this.

    Regarding the remote control feature I have checked with Azure Communication Engineering team on this and below is the feedback shared.

    Currently there is no remote-control feature in ACS but you can build remote control using data channel on ACS (in beta).

    Here is the Quick start tutorial on how to use/add data channel messaging in your calling app.

    I would suggest you raise a feedback request here. Our product team will review and implement it accordingly.

    Feel free to reach back to me if you have any further questions.
