Is it possible to instantly deliver a web push notification to notify a phone call or to deliver any other time-sensitive notification?
How can you create a web notification now that is displayed some time later?
One of the major features of web apps (both on desktop and mobile browsers) is the ability to send push notifications that are delivered even when the website is closed.
When you send a web push notification, you need to set the TTL: what is it? What value should you use? This article describes the TTL and the best practices for setting its value.
It’s easy to create segments based on the user preferred language. In this way you can send different notifications to users with different language preferences.
Now you can use Pushpad for delivering time-sensitive messages. For example you can notify urgent alerts or incoming phone calls.
You can use the Push API to send timely notifications from your website (the notifications are delivered even when the user is not on your website). If you use Pushpad, a service for web push notifications, it is very simple to set the time when the notification must be delivered.
Sometimes an event can be triggered very frequently. However you want to send a notification to the user only once in a period of time: for example you may want to notify the event with at most one notification every hour (or day, etc.).
Some kinds of applications may create a lot of push notifications in a small amount of time.
Sometimes you just want to notify every single message, but other times might be better to reduce the number of notifications or avoid to send the same notification too many times in a short period of time.
On 28 September 2016 we have changed how the icon_url of the Pushpad API works.
APNs an GCM have always provided a way to send notifications in batch.
It would be useful to see this feature for the Push API, which unfortunately doesn’t have it yet, meaning that you have to make an HTTP request for each endpoint. If you want to send a web push notification to N users at a time with a single API request you can still use a service like Pushpad which makes the hard work for you.
