#AdafruitIO New Feature Launch: Feed Sharing!


Hi Adafruit IO Community,

A brand new feature has been added to Adafruit IO: Feed Sharing!

What is feed sharing? Adam writes…

You’ve always been able to make your feeds completely public or completely private. Private feeds are hidden from the outside world, no other user can see them and no one browsing Adafruit IO can stumble across them. Public feeds are available as a read-only data source to anyone in the world. Until now, though, there hasn’t been a way to receive data from other Adafruit IO users in your feeds and no way to share your data with just one person.

Feed sharing introduces the ability to share a particular feed with a particular user as a read-only or read-write feed. This means you can keep a feed “private” as far as the whole world is concerned, but allow another Adafruit IO account to send data to it and read data from it.

You can start using the new feed sharing feature on Adafruit IO right now! Head over to the Adafruit IO blog post and follow the quick-start.

We’ll be adding more information to the Adafruit IO welcome guide with most of this information and we’re always checking the Adafruit IO forums, so if you have any questions about feed sharing please stop by and ask.

This is the first iteration of a pretty new feature for us and we’re excited to see how people use it! Join us in the forum or on Discord in the adafruit-io channel with questions, comments, or suggestions.
