Multi-region Support

LAST EDIT Oct 12 2021

Stream's Chat infrastructure is partially replicated on several regions, allowing developers all around the globe to optimize for network latency by mapping their usage to the region closest to their users. There is support for Chat in US East, EU West, Singapore, Sydney and Mumbai.

Users can now arbitrarily create apps in the location of their choice, without any action or approval needed from our side. Two steps are required to do so :

Dashboard Server Location

Copied!

For Chat, users will first choose hosting their app in our US East, EU West, Singapore, Sydney or Mumbai server instances.

Once you've set the region for your application, it cannot be changed.

Client Location Settings

Copied!

Stream's new Edge infrastructure removes the need to specifically set a regional URL. The baseURL is https://chat.stream-io-api.com regardless of region.

Migrating to Edge

Copied!

If you are an existing integrator and have historically set your region to a specific Stream server, you can begin using Edge with your application by changing your URL:
