Hello.

I'm considering replacing IoT Hub with IoT Central.

I believe that IoT Hub device twins will be replaced by IoT Central properties and IoT Hub direct methods by IoT Central commands.

IoT Hub has messages (one-way communication from cloud to device) in addition to the above.
Does IoT Central have an equivalent to thisIoT Hub messages?
Is there no other way but to use commands instead?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi @HinataGrape-6694,

    IoT Central also supports "offline commands" which use IoT Hub's cloud-to-device messaging under the hood: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-central/core/concepts-get-connected#sdk-features-and-iot-hub-connectivity
