Realtime communication

Hello guys,

is there some kind of functionality which opens real time communication? For example a chat application which updates itself without refreshing it. I guess its not the best solution to constantly refresh it every second by using a timer which has a fetch call in it or is it?
I know that websockets should be available soon but I know that this feature is planned for years now.
What would be the right strategy to get realtime communication between apps or between apps and a webserver? :slight_smile:

Polling is indeed the right way at this exact moment, but web sockets are actively being worked on, and when that feature ships, that is indeed the way to go. If I were you, I would focus on the rest of the app for a while, using mock data/polling, and migrate the actual communication layer to web sockets later on.
