|Include Timetoken||Whether event dates time tokens should be included in response or not.|
|Start End||Time token delimiting the start/end of time slice (exclusive) to pull messages from.|
|Count of Messages on Channels||The API is a history based API that simply does a mostly normal history operation but instead of returning the messages in a channel it returns the count of messages. Without actually calling history on those channels this API gives you the ability to say if there are messages in the chat channel you can go look at further.|
|Fetch messages from storage||This function fetches historical messages from multiple channels.|
|Delete messages from storage||Removes the messages from the history of a specific channel.|
|Count||Specifies the number of historical messages to return.|

|Fetch messages from storage with meta||This function fetches historical messages from multiple channels with metadata.|
|Fetch messages from storage with action flags||This function fetches historical messages from multiple channels with message action flags.|
Return a 17 digit precision Unix epoch from the server.
|Time||This function will return a 17 digit precision Unix epoch from the server.|
This function causes the client to create an open TCP socket to the PubNub Real-Time Network and begin listening for messages on a specified channel.
|Subscribe to channels||Ability to subscribe to channels.|
|Subscribe to channel groups||Ability to subscribe to channel groups.|
|Subscribe to presence channels||Ability to subscribe to presence channels.|
|Subscribe to presence channel groups||Ability to subscribe to presence channel groups.|
|Subscribe with timetoken||Subscribe with timetoken.|
|Wildcard subscribe||Wildcard subscribes allow the client to subscribe to multiple channels using wildcard. E.g., if you subscribe to a.* you will get all messages for a.b, a.c, a.x. The wildcarded * portion refers to any portion of the channel string name after the dot (.).|
|Filter Expression||Stream Filter allows a subscriber to apply a filter to only receive messages that satisfy the conditions of the filter. The message filter is set by the subscribing client(s) but it is applied on the server side thus preventing unwanted messages (those that do not meet the conditions of the filter) from reaching the subscriber.|
|Publisher UUID||Has the publisher UUID of the published message.|
|PubSub v2 compatibility||Uses PubSub v2 to make subscribe calls.|
|Message Actions events listener||Has support to listen to Action Events from Message Reactions API.|

|Process pn_other in message||When a message with JSON key named `pn_other` is published and encryption is enabled, only the value of `pn_other` will be encrypted and the rest of the message will be in plain text. This feature is useful when you want to send out encrypted push notifications. On the subscribe end, if `pn_other` is detected in the received message and encryption is enabled, only the value of `pn_other` wil be decrypted. Rest of the message will be not be decrypted. Same goes for History and Fetch.|
