Channels

STREAMING

Deepgram’s Channels feature allows you to specify the number of independent audio channels your submitted audio contains. The default value is 1.

The Channels feature is used when the Encoding feature is also being used to submit streaming raw audio. It is not read at any other time.

Enable Feature

To enable Channels, when you call Deepgram’s API, add a channels parameter in the query string and set it to the number of channels in your submitted audio.

channels=NUMBER_OF_CHANNELS

For an example of audio streaming, see Getting Started with Streaming Audio.
