  • Introducing Commands Messages - 28/01/2021

    Now it is easy to get a ping for a pong and find the number of total connected clients to a channel.


    Introducing commands messages:
    We added two commands that can help you send queries to the WebSocket server, we plan to add more command messages in the future as per the requirements of our customers.

  • Website Updates 17/12/2020

    Users can now choose to opt-out of daily-usage-report emails and other email notifications from their PieSocket account settings.

  • WebSocket Endpoint Update - 16/12/2020

    We made the following non-breaking changes in the WebSocket v3 endpoint.

    • Added a new parameter "cluster_id" to the v3 of the WebSocket endpoint
    • Changed the WebSocket endpoint domain from to (non-breaking)
    • PieSocketJS is updated to include the new parameter and use the new domain.
    • Fixed a bug related to counting of messages sent through API/publish

  • Releasing PieSocketJS Beta - 15/12/2020

    We are excited to introduce our first SDK, the javascript client: PieSocket-JS

    PieSocketJS is in beta right now and we will update the website docs once this is out of beta, hopefully in the 2nd week of the new year.


  • New feature: Auto-scaling - 10/12/2020

    We have added a new feature called "auto-scaling" for API keys. 

    It allows customers to have control over their API usage and billing. From now onwards, if you have auto-scaling disabled for your API key, all the connections to it post daily-quota-exhaustion will be denied. 

    In case auto-scaling is enabled, the service will keep working as expeted and charge customers on a pay-per-use basis for all the messages that exceed the daily quota.

    This setting can be tuned per API key (not per account).
