ACS Group Calling: Does Android/iOS SDk support group call or only 1:1 call using ACS?

Hi Team,

We're facing several issues with enabling group calling using ACS.

  1. We call our ACS resource to get AD Identity for every participant joining the call.
  2. Host initiates the call to get ACS token and we receive that from ACS recource.
  3. We pass this token to all participants that are supposed to join the call.
  4. When participants click join, there's no action on the calling SDK UI library used.

Document at link suggests ACS calling SDK can only be used for 1:1 call. Is that correct? How do we enable group call?

Thanks.

    To benefit the community, just following-up from the comments discussion.

    Group calls are supported in the calling SDK (hope you're not leveraging calling UI SDK). 1:1, Group Calling and Teams Interop works for both iOS and Android.

    1:1, Group Calling and Teams Interop works for both iOS and Android the Docs are worded incorrectly. Thanks again for your feedback on the doc. I have shared the feedback with our content for adding more clarity.
