The big draw for developers is the quick and easy setup time. Sendbird says in-app messaging can be up and running within five minutes, and the platform comes with a wealth of helpful features. These include multiple device syncing, read receipts, filters and user blocking, plus extensive analytics through a dashboard.

It’s not just one-to-one chat messaging either, Sendbird supports group messaging, clan chats for mobile games, plus a public chat room. There are 340 apps using the Sendbird platform right now, with a total of about two million users, Sendbird’s CEO John Kim, said in an interview with TechCrunch.
Sendbird operates a subscription system for its developers, with a free level for apps with a monthly active user base of fewer than 1000. To learn more about the Sendbird SDK, visit the company’s website here.
