Pusher vs Websocket vs Echo

  echo, laravel, laravel-echo, pusher, websocket

I’m currently trying to develop a flutter app that connects to a laravel server using sockets.

I was following a tutorial, in which he used https://github.com/beyondcode/laravel-websockets and connected to Pusher and then from my mobile app I used Echo and Pusher Client.

To be honest I’m lost in the process, and can’t really tell what’s the purpose of each.

I would really appreciate if someone can help and explain the difference between Pusher, Websockets and Echo.

Thank you!
