Presence Update: 3 New Features
We’re excited to announce that today we’re launching a major upgrade to our Presence Feature. This update includes performance improvements for existing functionality as well as introducing three new features including:
Custom User State
Now you can set custom key / value data per user or device to track custom states or other user data such as age, gender, or location. We’ve provided simple APIs to set and query this information
Subscribe with State data on a User / Channel
Update State data on a User / Channel
Get all State data on a User / Channel
Previously our here_now() function was specific to a given PubNub channel. We’ve updated this function so that you can now make one call and see all users present across all channels.
This new function allows developers to quickly determine all of the channels to which a given user or device is connected.
You can also find full API documentation and tutorials for the new features here.
As always, if you have any questions or feedback about this update feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
