Hey 👋 I work on the product side of marketing at Ably - a leading serverless infrastructure provider for realtime apps and products. Developers use our network to stream data (including notifications) between devices all over the world at super low latencies. We're absolutey thrilled to share Ably Push Notifications today, which recently graduated from beta, adding support for native iOS and Android notifications to Ably's growing library of SDKs 🎉. Our users are all experienced devs so we work hard to make our APIs simple yet powerful. We think you'll like this single, unified API to send both iOS and Android notifications via APNs and FCM from your realtime apps. You can read more in the announcement blog: https://blog.ably.io/native-push... Or check out the product page which has links to docs and tutorials: https://www.ably.io/push-notific... Smart notifications are on the road map but any feedback on how we can make cross-device, cross-platform push notifications even easier or better is always welcome 🙌.
Hey everyone - I’m the CEO and a technical co-founder of Ably. Since 2013 Ably has evolved from a realtime data delivery provider to a fully fledged platform for building and scaling realtime applications, services, and APIs. Ably Push Notifications adds another layer of functionality to the Ably platform, making it easy for developers to add native iOS and Android push notifications to their realtime products. This was something our customers were asking for and we’re happy to deliver. Ably Push Notifications is part of our platform and isn’t priced separately so you can dive right in and use Ably for native notifications - our free plan provides 3 million messages/month. I’ll be around all day to answer any questions you have.

I was a beta tester for Ably’s push notifications and I can happily recommend Ably 😊

Pros:

Easy to get set up, API is really nice to use, saves me from using multiple services to send push notifications. Documentation is top notch.

Cons:

Nothing at the moment.

Disclaimer: I am the current maintainer of the Ably dotnet client library

Pros:

Reliable AND fast messaging. Simple, Consistent API across platforms with clear documentation

Cons:

Currently no direct support for push notifications with Xamarin

Lovely to finally see Ably Push Notifications being launched in general availability!
