How To Subscribe Multiple Observable In Angular Component

Are you the one posting about the subscribing multiple observables in diverse forums but not getting the right answer or still looking for the right guide to look after?. In case if you got to see this guide today then share your Gratitude with one of our Angular experts Mr. Nagaraj because he is the one who came forward to give a clear picture about this concept after seeing so many complex conversations and requests that are going on the online forums.

Hey Guys, It’s me Nagaraj – a passionate angular developer associated with Agira Technologies, as like everyone am also a bit confused after seeing multiple answers being posted especially for this concept.  So, I wanted to give you a small & clear wrap up on how you can simply subscribe multiple observables in angular without any hurdles. When you are using observable in your project, anyways it will support for the asynchronous process.  Unlike the past Angular development strategies, nowadays we are started using the Observable several times in angular application such as HTTP API access, state management framework, service-based data sharing using Multicasting Observable like Subject, BehaviourSubject.   

Of course, there are several ways to subscribe to the multiple Observable in component. So far, many articles you have seen must have shown you the same 4 patterns which are needs to be followed in certain cases but I somehow felt that it needs not to be complicated with 4 patterns which are quite hard to pair and predict then & there. Trust me it can be easily divided into two way and you can utilize either of it based on the conditions I’m going to tell you now. Also, it would be easy for you to understand in case if you have any conflicts in understanding the concept of subscribing multiple components. Explanations apart, let me give you the quick guidance on both ways and solution to get it done easily.


  1. Subscribing an observable into another observable.
  2. Subscribing to multiple observables – Combining observables.


Subscribing an observable into another observable

As the headline says, this method can be used to subscribe the dependent Observable.  Let me put it in simple words! For example, sometimes when the observable has dependent of another observable or when we subscribe to one observable which is a subscription of another Observable then we can use the condition will fall on this category for which you can use the following methodology.


So, this is the previous method you must be using,





Now, let me you how you can do it! Moreover, you can do it in two ways as I have listed both models below,




Model 1:

You can use this Model 1 when the subscribed value is required within a TypeScript and view(HTML).




Model 2:

  Other case, you can use Model 2 when the value is required only within a view.

Subscribing to multiple observables – Combining observables.

This is another type that used to subscribe to multiple observable but in this type, no observable will be a dependent of another observable. But in some cases, may be orders of the subscription is required for the proper execution as planned. You will understand when you see the below example.


Before that, let me remind you the previous way of handling it,





Note : 

If the observables emit only one value or you require only the final value of each observable to be emitted before it’s completion, then forkJoin is the better option and if it’s not the case then you have combineLatest operator to do it.




Model 1:

Use this model when the value is required within a TypeScript and view(HTML) that are not dependent of any observable.



Model 2:

When the value is required only within a view that are not dependent of any observable then you can use this Model 2
