Live Service

The Kinvey Live Service enables an event-driven way to receive data live on your device.

In the past, when an entity has been updated in a Kinvey collection, a user would have to perform a Find operation to retrieve the latest data. Using the Kinvey Live Service, updates from the Kinvey backend can instead be pushed down to the device when an entity has been updated.

In addition to the live updating of entities on your device, the Kinvey Live Service can also enable quick and secure real-time communication between users, in a publish/subscribe pattern. When a user sends a message to another user, that user will receive the message live on their device.

Platform Support

The Java library does not support Live Service at the moment. To continue reading about Live Service, switch to a platform that supports it.
