Benefits

Engage and interact with your audience

Focus on building a great user experience rather than managing chat infrastructure. Amazon IVS Chat provides resource management and a messaging API for sending, receiving, and moderating chat messages alongside your live streams.

Performance and scale

Build reliable and engaging experiences with near real-time delivery of messages with high throughput—supporting millions of concurrent users and thousands of messages per second.

Protect chat rooms

Maintain control of user authentication and authorization with your client applications, and use tokenized access to manage which users can access chat rooms and chat features.

Flexible moderation

Prevent potential abuse with moderation APIs that can block content based on custom AWS Lambda Functions and allow assigned moderators to delete content and disconnect users.
