  • How to start a background service in Flutter that runs forever and listens on a WebSocket?
    The reason so many people guide you to Firebase Cloud Messaging is because unlike other options, FCM is made by google, and utilizes Google Play Services, which is installed on most Android phones by default and has VERY high permissions. This means it can always receive and process calls from Cloud Messaging - https://firebase.google.com/docs/cloud-messaging/. Source: about 1 year ago

ZEGOCLOUD Call Kit supports offline calls, and I will explain how to configure offline calls in subsequent articles. Source: over 1 year ago

  • System Design: Twitter
    Push notifications are an integral part of any social media platform.

  • System Design: WhatsApp
    The notification service will then consume the event from the message queue and forward the request to Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) or Apple Push Notification Service (APNS) based on the client's device platform (Android, iOS, web, etc). We can also add support for email and SMS. - Source: dev.to / almost 2 years ago

  • how to create push notifications for mobile
    OK, well then the place to start is by developing the client mobile application. As part of that, you'll need to figuring out what library you'll use on the client side to receive said notifications. For example: Is there some built-in Android or iOS library that does this? Or some 3rd party service you will use (maybe Firebase?)?. Source: about 2 years ago
