As your apps connect with more users and send them more messages, we wanted to make it easy to keep track of your usage on Pusher.

You can now get daily or weekly usage summaries delivered to your inbox, on Slack, or as a webhook.

If you only want to get notifications when you hit your plan’s limits, you can opt to receive limit notifications instead.

Follow similar steps to add a limit notification in the ‘Limit notifications’ section on the settings page. Once you have set up a usage summary or a limit notification, you can Disable or Remove either at any time in the settings.

We hope that this will make it simple to stay up to date on your Pusher usage and ensure that you are on the right plan for your needs.
