Channel types

Sendbird UIKit provides three different types of channels: open channel, group channel, and supergroup channel. Each channel type provides different needs based on your use cases. See Channel types in Chat SDK to learn more about the different behaviors of open channels and group channels.

Open channel

An open channel is a public chat that allows a massive number of users to interact with one another in a more dynamic environment. Open channels can accommodate far more users compared to group channels and don’t require an invitation for users to enter.

Group channel

A group channel is a chat that allows close interactions between a limited number of users. In order to join this type of channel, an invitation from a channel member is required by default.

Supergroup channel

A supergroup channel is a type of group channel that can accommodate more than 2,000 members. It's an expanded version of a group channel and serves the same functions as a group channel. The maximum number of channel members can stretch up to 20,000 depending on your Sendbird plan.
