Active Speaker Indication - Javascript

The Active Speaker Indication feature in VideoSDK allows you to identify the participant who is currently the active speaker in a meeting. This feature proves especially valuable in larger meetings or webinars, where numerous participants can make it challenging to identify the active speaker.

Whenever any participant speaks in a meeting, the onSpeakerChanged event will trigger, providing the participant ID of the active speaker.

For example, the meeting is running with Alice and Bob. Whenever any of them speaks, onSpeakerChanged event will trigger and return the speaker's participantId.


let meeting;

// Initialize Meeting
meeting = VideoSDK.initMeeting({
// ...

meeting.on("speaker-changed", (activeSpeakerId) => {
console.log("participantId", activeSpeakerId);
