Scalability

Momento is serverless. It scales down to free when you are not using much and scales up to handle millions of concurrent users. You only pay for what you need–and you can kiss your pager goodbye during load spikes since Momento just absorbs the load.

Cost-efficiency

Momento will save you time, money, and complexity. The pay-per-use model allows you to build a production grade chat app for a few dollars–and that's if you don't fit in our generous free tier.

Why build a chat app with Momento?

Whether you are building an AI-powered chatbot, adding chat for your users, or even both, Momento is the fastest way to add a chat! Forget tuning Redis, adding API Gateways with complex WebSocket configurations, and all the complexity you previously had to deal with to build a production-ready chat. Momento Cache stores the chats and Topics notifies users of new messages. It's really that simple!

Build an In-Game Chat

Ecosystem Engineer Allen Helton demonstrates how he used Momento Cache collection data types to build an in-game chat for a game called Acorn Hunt. He walks through the different caches behind the game and the collection data types used in each, shows off the working chat application, and then pulls back the curtain on the API making it work.
