To make Laravel work asynchronously, you can take advantage of Laravel's built-in Queue feature which allows you to run tasks in the background. Here's how you can set up and use queues in Laravel:

  1. Install a queue driver: By default, Laravel uses the "sync" driver which processes jobs synchronously. To work asynchronously, you can use a different queue driver like Redis, Beanstalk, Amazon SQS, etc. You can configure the queue driver by updating the QUEUE_CONNECTION variable in your .env file.
  2. Create a job class: Define the task you want to run asynchronously by creating a new job class. You can generate a new job class using the php artisan make:job command.
  3. Dispatch the job: In your application code, you can dispatch the job using the dispatch() method. For example, dispatch(new MyJob()).
  4. Process the job: Laravel will automatically handle processing the job in the background using the configured queue driver. You can monitor the progress of the job using Laravel Horizon or other monitoring tools.


By following these steps, you can make Laravel work asynchronously and improve the performance of your application by offloading time-consuming tasks to background processes.
