To keep Twilio Notify as the ultimate way of orchestrating notifications across the multiple messaging channels your customers use, we’re always working hard to quickly add new ones. Whether that be SMS, push, or messaging apps like Facebook Messenger, Notify will help you select the best channel(s) to send notifications based on your business case and your customers’ preferences.
Today, we’re happy to announce that we’ve added support for Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) – the new version of Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) – to Twilio Notify. FCM is the latest technology from Google for delivering push notifications to Android devices and even to select browsers (Chrome, Mozilla, Opera).
Getting Started with Notify and FCM
Notify is available today in Developer Preview and we’re granting access to the API for a limited number of accounts. If this sounds interesting for your business or application, learn more or request access now.
For a look at how to use Firebase Cloud Messaging with Notify, checkout our Android quickstart guide.
We can’t wait to see what you build with multi-channel notifications!
