Google is expanding the Firebase Cloud Messaging service to include sending notifications, which feature is currently rolling out to all users, along with deeper integration with Google services and new design for the service.
The in-app notification will allow developers to send contextual messages to users of their apps, while the messaging can be customized to look and feel as the developer deems right, and may only include basic text for iOS users and an additional click_action for Android users.
Firebase Predictions and Google Analytics for Firebase are now integrated for improved Cloud Messaging API, with Predictions support from Google’s AI, and a revamped console for managing projects across the app cycle.
Also, Firebase developers will be able to create JIRA issues based on crash reports in Firebase, thanks to the integration of Atlassian’s JIRA to Firebase, which will be rolling out in the coming week.
And with the Crashlytics support in the Firebase, even as Firebase has become more of a platform, developers will be able to build their app crash reports into workflows.
Firebase Release section now features the live data, albeit the new features which have started rolling out today would be available to all users in the coming week.
