Is there any hint or release date when the new supabase realtime from might be released? I'm planning a new SaaS which requires exactly that functionality and would prefer using supabase. Just considering if I should currently delay this a few weeks or if I should go with an alternative.

I don't think they have provided any update regarding that recently.
But you could take a look at Pusher or build your own websocket server if you want to get going right now

Yea, Pusher or Ably would be both my alternatives, probably i got a lot of issues with their pricing model. I will peak at 10k connections maybe once a month for 4 hrs. 😅 I guess I will just create my own socketio cluster

Right Pusher would be very expensive in that case!
Good luck!

I've asked the team working on that for a update, will get back to you as soon as I get some information.

@Michael Ketzer | Wen Bo from Supabase Realtime team here! I can give you early access to the new Realtime with Broadcast/Presence functionality if you would like to try it out. Just submit a support ticket with your request and mention that Wen Bo sent you.

Hey @wenbo, that sounds great! Will do that, thank you! 🙂

I am in the same boat, we are trying to decide whether it's worth waiting for the new features vs implementing it ourselves. Is there a rough timeline for these features?
