A connection to communicate with one or more peers, where the peers are not aware of each other. Each peer can only communicate with the current user.

For example, a channel connection could be used when a user wants to have a private chat with a contact, or wants to send their location information to one or more contacts.


In the diagram above, the current user (user A) has invited users B, C, and D to the channel. Once the users join, user A can send data to B, C, and D, but B, C, and D can only send data to A.
