Hi,

Today I went to "cost analysis" for the resource group we are using for custom voice, and noticed the bill for "custom neural voice model hosting unit" is high. We don't need to have our custom voice model endpoints running all the time, so I have suspended them. Will that reduce this cost?

    Hello @Troy Rainbow , That's correct. You can suspend and resume your endpoint if you don't use it all the time. You will not be charged when suspended. When an endpoint is reactivated after suspension, the endpoint URL will be kept the same so you don't need to change your code in your apps.
