Custom message between peers in Azure Communication Services

I successfully created a working example of a group call using (Azure Communication Services).
But as I scroll through the pages, I can't find a way to emit/receive custom message (custom event) between clients...!

For example, in a group call of Bob, Alice, and Sia:

Bob emit "suggest-camera-on"
Alice & Sia would then receive the event and show a dialog asking "Do you want to turn on the camera"...!

How can I achieve this...?

@HuyHongPhan-0346,

Currently, it doesn't support any calling events, our product team is looking at adding more calling events in the near future (but no ETA at this time).
However, you could implement this based on your requirement by building on top of our SDKs.

I have also shared your feedback with our product engineering team.
You may also wish to add your feedback here- https://github.com/Azure/Communication/issues for tracking and visibility.

I'll get back to you shortly as I have more information on this.

Thanks for your valuable feedback.

Thank you for your help, but I'm confused about what does "calling events" means...?
I'm looking for some way to emit a custom event to every peer in the same group...!

@HuyHongPhan-0346,
Thanks for the follow-up. Apologies for any confusion. Those are custom events (custom messages) as you mentioned, our product team is looking at adding such custom event in the near future.
As soon as we have more information on this, we will share it here. But, there is no ETA at this time.

I see you have created a feedback item on the GitHub page, thanks for creating the post.

@HuyHongPhan-0346, To benefit the community summarizing our discussions from comments

We do not currently support exchanging messages between peers in a group call.
Once potential suggestion is to use ACS Chat SDK side by side with Calling, and exchange messages via that channel.
-We discussed on this with our product engineering team internally- (thanks for creating the GitHub feedback item)

Those are custom events (custom messages) as you mentioned, our product team is looking at adding such custom event in the near future. However, there is no ETA at this time. As soon as we have more information, we will update the GitHub feedback item.

Thank you for your kind support, it means a lot to me...!
Guess now I can try out ACS Chat SDK and wait for further update on this...!

Have a nice day...!
