Change of billing standards
Changed billable audio duration to the cumulative duration of users’ stay in a room minus the duration of video to which the users subscribe.

Note:
If a user subscribes to multiple audio streams, the durations will not be added up for billing.

If a user does not subscribe to any video streams, audio duration will be billed regardless of whether the user subscribes to audio streams.

The calculation of billable video duration remains unchanged, which is the cumulative duration of video to which the users in a room subscribe.
