Read more

Designed for mobile apps, this plugin enables you to reach out to your app users through one of the best notifications experiences out there - the Firebase Cloud Messaging. Using this plugin you will be able to configure an array of advanced notification features and send notifications of different types to your mobile app end-users

How to use this plugin

Start by setting up a notification backend service

To create, manage, and distribute notifications to your app users, you need to first configure a notification backend service. For that, you can use our Cloud Messaging Configurator, a Reactive Web app with a group of REST API methods that lets you compose and send notifications to users and/or topics. You’ll be able to send out notifications that include elements such as title, body, image, deeplink, and extra data with lists of key-value pairs. 

Create notification functionalities on your app

Use the Firebase Cloud Messaging actions to establish the basic notifications functionalities on your app. You can register/unregister devices, get the device token, subscribe to topics, set the badge number, manage pending notifications and clear existing ones. 

Firebase Sample app

To view a demo of this app, install the Firebase Sample App. In the Cloud Messaging section, you’ll be able to see an example of how the current version of the Firebase Cloud Messaging Plugin can be implemented in an app.
