    FAQ: Chat API

    What is real time communication?Arrow QuickBlox

    Real time communication is any online interaction and exchange of information between users with little to no latency. Real time communication examples offered by QuickBlox include live chat, instant messaging, peer-to-peer audio & video calls, video conferencing, and video streaming.

    Does your chat API support apps built in JavaScript?Arrow QuickBlox

    We provide real time chat for JavaScript, iOS (Objective-C /Swift), Android (Kotlin/Java), React Native and Flutter. Plus you can access our API directly to integrate QuickBlox functionality with your application if our SDKs do not support your programming language.

    Can I build real time group chat with QuickBlox?Arrow QuickBlox

    Yes. Our SDKs and API allow you to configure three types of chat including 1-on-1, private group chat, and public group chat.

    Can I use your QuickBlox Chat API for real time video communication?Arrow QuickBlox

    QuickBlox video chat and conferencing is built on real time communication with WebRTC. To enable video communication functionality you would need to use one of our SDKs which is built on top of our APIs.

    How does your Chat API work?Arrow QuickBlox

    Our Chat API comprises several APIs, application programming interfaces, that send requests from your app to our backend server as well as other cloud based communication services (e.g. there is an API to send push messages via the Apple Push Notification Service). Furthermore our Chat API is built on essential real time communication protocol XMPP, which enables real time chat messaging.
