Latest Feature Releases
PubNub Chat is now available. Every chat API you need to create in-app messaging your users will love. Please visit /solutions/chat/ to learn more.
We are please to announce that you can customize PubNub, using Functions, even more so, with the introduction of support for the PubNub Objects, Signals, Message Actions APIs. You can read more here: /docs/blocks/pubnub-module.
In Beta, but with robust features, this API is what a developer needs to create the data scaffolding for their applications. No longer do you have to spin up a separate database in order to manage the chat rooms or live events and the users participating in those things, whether on-line or not. Store long lived metadata with each of the objects - we call them Spaces and Users - so you can fully customize the application data to your needs. Click here to learn more about this new API.
Typing, typing, all the time? Or thinking about your place in the world constantly, from a lat/long perspective? Trying to send that data through PubNub and finding it a bit too expensive? Well, guess what? We have heard the need and are responding! With the introduction of PubNub Signals, customers can send and receive this type of data - think small bits of information necessary to drive a process or an app, e.g. show whether or not someone is typing - at far cheaper costs than a normal PubNub publish and subscribe.
