Build real-time applications with Azure SignalR Service

With Azure SignalR Service, you can easily add real-time functionality to applications. This real-time functionality allows the service to push content updates to connected mobile applications. As a result, apps are updated without the need to poll the server or submit new HTTP requests for updates.
