While we like this idea, it’s not something that is specific to Functions, and not something we have a schedule for. If you’d like to know more about using Functions with GraphQL, check out this workshop:

I hope it is not inappropriate to share links to MS competitor's sites, but if Azure will develop a GraphQL service, i'd expect it can do the same things as AWS AppSync (https://aws.amazon.com/appsync/).
In fact, right now the only thing keeping me from choosing Azure over AWS for my ideas is such a 'GraphQL-as-a-service' solution. It is possible to develop a GraphQL endpoint using Azure Functions and Apollo, but AWS supports things like subscriptions out of the box, which are really essential in a lot of applications.
