How do you add chat or messaging functionality to an iOS app in Swift?

I want to know how you add a chat or messaging function to an iOS app in Swift. What kind of backend will I need? Are there going to be any courses that cover this?

I just left an answer on your other question about adding user profiles to Swift apps. I think you'd do it the same way. I mean, the protocols and specific code would be much different but the connection from iPhone to Web to iPhone (another persons for messaging or your own for pulling up user info) would be the same. I hope this helps
