Introduction to the Social Service

Last updated on September 21, 2023


The AccelByte Social service gives you the tools to help your players connect and build a community within your game. Features such as Chat and Friends enable players to forge social connections that not only make your game more meaningful, but also more fun.

AccelByte Social service offers several advantages for game developers, including:

  • Real-time notifications: ensuring that communication between the game and players is smooth and instant. Our services are designed to keep all players connected to the same hub, making social connections easy.

  • More fun playing together: features such as Parties, Friends, and Groups bring multiplayer games to life. We offer a robust set of services that make it easy for your players to connect and play together.

  • Keep players safe from harassment: your players can block other players to prevent unwanted interactions, and these blocks are carried through our Social and Play services. This ensures that your players can focus on enjoying your game, without having to worry about negative interactions with other players.
