Google Firebase Valuable Features

Using the batch, it takes mere minutes to update the server. Normally, if we have a task, such as 12,000 records to be updated, it used to take 45 minutes to update. Now, after changing the code to a batch query it takes around one minute or less than one minute to update the records to Firestore.

If there's data added to the solution, there's a good record of it so it's easy to track everything.

Everything is updated automatically, which is very helpful.

The solution has a lot of features related to notifications and analytics. You can see information about how many users are on the app and from which country they are using the app.

What I like most about Google Firebase is that it's one of the easier options to host a website or app quickly. I think the backend integration is quite quick with the Firebase.

The Realtime Database feature is the most important for us since we are able to see changes in the database the moment they are happening. So, we built a real-time chat where users are able to talk with each other. Also, the push notifications on smartphones are another important feature that we discovered later, and it made a big impact on our portal.

The Firebase functions that act as triggers to let you know when there are changes in the database are very helpful.

Another important feature would be the SDK. You do not have to create an API since you are able to query the database directly from JavaScript or any other language.

The Firebase hosting and the automated authentication service, as well as the cloud functionality, are the solution's most valuable features. 

The documentation and guides for implementation are very good.

The user interface is very good and easy to navigate. 

The solution is easy to upload and overall easy to use.

The main feature for us is that the tools are all in one place and that you don't have to bother with the backend system and the infrastructure.

I found the flexibility of handling and dealing with the database through EDL to be very useful.
