Who do you want to whisper to? Both channels?

The way it works though is snoop channel creates a channel that you can treat like any other (add to a bridge, record, etc) - audio coming from it is a copy of the audio from the channel you are snooping on, audio going to it is whispered to the channel you are snooping on. To do spy/whisper you would snoop, create a bridge, and add the snoop channel and the channel doing the snooping into it.
