The Agora SDKs for Unity
The Agora Video SDK for Unity and Agora Voice SDK for Unity enable you to add in-game real-time communications to increase interactivity between players with minimum impact on the gameplay. The SDKs include the following features
● Extremely low latency audio and video communication: Sub-second low latency audio and video communication inside your game.

● Spatial sound effects: Spatial sound effects to add a sense of reality & depth to the sounds of your game.
● Voice change: Add more fun to your game by enabling voice changing through pitch, reverb, and equalizer. Anti-packet loss: powered by Agora’s SD-RTN ™, the SDKs are able to maintain a smooth call experience even when experiencing up to 70% packet loss rate.
