Firebase vs QuickBlox: What are the differences?

What is Firebase? The Realtime App Platform. Firebase is a cloud service designed to power real-time, collaborative applications. Simply add the Firebase library to your application to gain access to a shared data structure; any changes you make to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.

What is QuickBlox? Connect your user with mobile group chat, content sharing, user accounts and more. Add powerful communication features to your mobile app and data services for your backend
.

Firebase can be classified as a tool in the "Realtime Backend / API" category, while QuickBlox is grouped under "Communications SDK".

Some of the features offered by Firebase are:

  • Add the Firebase library to your app and get access to a shared data structure. Any changes made to that data are automatically synchronized with the Firebase cloud and with other clients within milliseconds.
  • Firebase apps can be written entirely with client-side code, update in real-time out-of-the-box, interoperate well with existing services, scale automatically, and provide strong data security.
  • Data Accessibility- Data is stored as JSON in Firebase. Every piece of data has its own URL which can be used in Firebase's client libraries and as a REST endpoint. These URLs can also be entered into a browser to view the data and watch it update in real-time.

On the other hand, QuickBlox provides the following key features:

  • Chat/IM
  • User login/registration, SSO
  • Video Calling
