AWS AppSync is a fully managed service that enables developers to build digital experiences based on real-time data. You can easily and effortlessly configure any supported data source to push and publish real-time data updates to subscribed clients with connection management, scalability, fan-out and broadcasting all handled by AppSync, allowing you to focus on your application business use cases and requirements instead of dealing with the complex infrastructure to manage real-time WebSocket connections at scale.

AWS AppSync now supports enhanced subscriptions filtering providing the ability to invalidate subscriptions and perform advanced filtering on the server side (instead of the client), which simplifies application development and reduces data sent to clients with improved authorization logic over data.

These new capabilities make it easier to use AppSync to build engaging digital experiences, such as gaming leaderboards, e-learning, social media, live streaming, sports, media, audience engagement, interactive chatrooms, or IoT dashboards for connected cars, healthcare or smart homes.

This feature is available in all AWS Regions where AppSync is available. For more details, refer to our blog post and the AppSync documentation.
