Can't use Node.js websockets on free plan. No solution yet?

Connections only remain for 5 minutes, after that time they simply disconnect.
This totally defeats the purpose of websockets since they exist to maintain an open channel.
The disconnection happens even if there is activity on the app.

So no support for websockets on the free plan?
I was hoping to switch from Heroku to Render on the free tier…

Thanks in advance

Hi,

Thank you for reaching out! Unfortunately, this is a limitation specific to the free tier. We have an internal issue tracking this, but we don’t currently have an ETA.

Best,
Jennifer
