Send Rich Push Notifications

You can use our push notifications service to send useful messages to your app users.

Why use this feature?

Sending push notifications can be a great way to notify your users of upcoming events, news, promotions, and limited sales. You can also schedule your push notifications in advance to be sent out to your users at a later time.

Note: Use this feature carefully to avoid overwhelming your users. Users receive push notifications even if your app is not currently open on their device. For some targeted tips for sending push notifications to your customers, click here.
