A simple formula to calculate video chat minutes

N = the number of participants who joined the call

Daily.co API formula

N * minutes = participant-minutes

Our formula is: the number of participants (N) multiplied by the meeting length.

Other providers

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

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