Firebase is a cloud computing and app development platform hosted by Google.
It was founded in 2011 as Envovle, a startup which developed APIs for embedded chat services in websites. Google acquired Firebase in 2014 and has further developed the services offered by the platform, some of which now include:
- ML Kit
- Realtime Database
- Firebase Hosting
- Performance Monitoring
These services are designed to allow developers to build and maintain apps with many backend services accessed directly by Firebase SDK’s.
