Android integration

To integrate our SDK into your Android app and be able to get a push all the way through from our API or dashboard into your app, there's just two steps that need completing.

  1. Generate and upload your Firebase key.
  2. Add our SDK to your app.

If you've already got a push notification provider, you might be able to skip part of step 1, but even so we still recommend checking through it all quickly - they don't take long and it might save you time later on!

Before you get started, it's worth checking the prerequisites we have to make sure your existing Android project will be easy to integrate:

  1. You should target API level 21 or later.
  2. You need to be using Gradle 4.1 or later.
  3. You should be using Jetpack (AndroidX), which includes meeting these version requirements:
    • com.android.tools.build:gradle v3.2.1 or later
    • compileSdkVersion 28 or later
  4. If using an emulator to test, your must use an image with Google Play.

If the above are all ticked off, then lets get going.
