Tighten partner Matt Stauffer has written an in-depth introduction to Laravel's new Event Broadcasting tool, Echo.
So, what is Laravel Echo? It's a tool that makes it easy for you to bring the power of WebSockets to your Laravel applications. It simplifies some of the more common—and more complex—aspects of building complex WebSockets interactions.
Echo is still in beta, and will be launched in July along with Laravel 5.3.
