In-app chat

PubNub allows you to create chat apps from scratch or add them to your existing applications. You can focus on creating the best user experience while PubNub takes care of scalability, reliability, security, and global legislative compliance.

Create 1:1 private chat rooms, group chats, or mega chats for large scale events, for a variety of use cases:

  • Virtual Events: Streaming chat in live events
  • Telemedicine: Private chat between doctors and patients
  • Gaming: Live chat for online game players
  • Support: Chat between agents and customers
  • Marketplaces: Chat between buyers and sellers
  • Social chat: Chat with your own community
  • Collaboration: Chat for team communication at the workplace

Get started

There are two ways in which you can create an in-app chat with PubNub: either through our ready-to-use PubNub Chat Components or by using our client SDKs and directly calling the PubNub API. Choose your way and get started!
