Google Cloud Pub/Sub vs SignalR: What are the differences?

Google Cloud Pub/Sub: Global service for real-time and reliable messaging and streaming data. Cloud Pub/Sub is a fully-managed real-time messaging service that allows you to send and receive messages between independent applications. You can leverage Cloud Pub/Sub’s flexibility to decouple systems and components hosted on Google Cloud Platform or elsewhere on the Internet; SignalR: A new library for ASP.NET developers that makes developing real-time web functionality easy. SignalR allows bi-directional communication between server and client. Servers can now push content to connected clients instantly as it becomes available. SignalR supports Web Sockets, and falls back to other compatible techniques for older browsers. SignalR includes APIs for connection management (for instance, connect and disconnect events), grouping connections, and authorization.

Google Cloud Pub/Sub and SignalR belong to "Realtime Backend / API" category of the tech stack.

SignalR is an open source tool with 7.75K GitHub stars and 2.19K GitHub forks. Here's a link to SignalR's open source repository on GitHub.
