A simple formula to calculate video chat minutes

Daily.co API formula

N * minutes = participant-minutes

Your total minutes is: the number of participants times the meeting length.

Other providers

N * (N-1) * minutes = subscribed-minutes

The subscriber formula other providers use is factorial. It's not just participants times minutes. Instead, there's an additional component, N-1. It's an extra calculation that adds costs.

N = the number of participants who joined the call
