Pusher Chatkit includes a number of features including (but not limited to) typing indicators to see who is typing online, public and private rooms, message storage, and online user presence to see who is and who isn't online. The company plans on adding many more features to the product such as read receipt tracking, native push notifications triggering for when users are offline, and SDKs for Go, PHP, and Python.
"As we speak, 1000s of developers are adding chat to their applications, but we know that even today, building chat from scratch is not as easy as it should be," states Pusher CCO Sylvain Giuliani in the announcement post. "We put everything we’ve learned helping GoGuardian, YouNow, Slaask, FreshDesk and more than 7,000 other developers using our existing API to add chat functionalities to their apps."
