Recently Microsoft announced a preview of Azure Web PubSub, a new service for building real-time web applications. Azure Web PubSub is a fully-managed service that supports native and serverless WebSockets.
WebSockets allow for full-duplex communication channels over a single TCP connection. Developers can leverage WebSockets in their web application implementation to open a two-way interactive communication session between the user’s browser and a server. It can be helpful in scenarios where web applications require high-frequency data updates such as gaming, auctioning, or applications that support live-chat cross-platform like chatbots, online customer support, and real-time shopping assistant.
