The Stream Maker Account’s new plan that provides qualifying teams with full and free access to Stream’s Chat API (2k MAU) and Activity Feed API is already a fact!
The APIs are already accessible to side projects, new startups, and other earlier-stage ventures. The Maker Account has hard limits, so we will never hit overages. Stream’s API is based on Go, RocksDB & Raft and powers activity feeds and chats for over a billion end users.
It’s very easy to get started with Stream and build your chat or messaging experiences. UI components are currently supported for React, React Native, Flutter, Kotlin, and Swift.
The following tutorials can quickly teach you how to build chat or messaging for your app using the platforms listed below:
- React Tutorial
- React Native Tutorial
- Flutter Tutorial
- Swift Chat Tutorial
- Kotlin Chat Tutorial
- Chat API Tour
All SDKs ship with both low-level API access and ready-made UI components. The UI components give you a flexible way to quickly build chat for your application. You can also leverage the low-level SDKs to build any type of chat or messaging experience.
