Now you can use Pushpad for delivering time-sensitive messages. For example you can notify urgent alerts or incoming phone calls.
In particular we have introduced the following features:
- A priority queue for notifications with less than 100 recipients; this means that your transactional notifications will be delivered immediately by Pushpad without queues.
- An option that allows you to mark some notifications as urgent, as described by RFC 8030. Basically when you send a notification from the Pushpad dashboard or using the API / libraries you can enable an urgent flag: those notifications can bypass the power saving mode of many devices and are displayed immediately even when the screen is locked or the mobile device is dormant.
