Push Notifications Overview

How do Push Notifications work?

Push notifications send messages to any device that has installed your app and allowed push notifications.

They require a bit of setup, so please follow the instructions below very carefully. Things to note:

  • Push notifications cannot be tested in a simulator, you must use an actual device.
  • Most problems derive from iOS certificates, make sure to follow instructions exactly.
  • You must have a valid iOS developer account for Apple. You can find more information at Apple Developer
  • Android requires a free cloud console project and API key. You can find more information at Google Developers Console
