Hey @ivan.jiang

Thanks for your feedback.

It’s the privacy setting of the browser. We cannot play audio until the user interacts with the page.


I was wondering if there is a video SDK API similar to this browser web API


that can prompt the user for permission to use audio devices? or an SDK API can check the permission before calling startAudio()?


Hey @ivan.jiang

We do have a similar API named LocalAudioTrack, LocalAudioTrack | Zoom Video SDK for Web - 1.4.1, but it is only supposed to test the microphone before joining the session.
