If you ask a room of developers what mobile device features are missing from the web, push notifications are always high on the list.
Push notifications allow your users to opt-in to timely updates from sites they love and allow you to effectively re-engage them with customized, engaging content.
As of Chrome version 42, the Push API and Notification API are available to developers.
The Push API in Chrome relies on a few different pieces of technology, including Web App Manifests and Service Workers. In this post we’ll look at each of these technologies, but only the bare minimum to get push messaging up and running. To get a better understanding of some of the other features of manifests and the offline capabilities of service workers, please check out the links above.
Here is a description
This release of Chrome supports the new emerging web standard for push notifications on Android and desktop, enabling users to opt in to allow a specific website to send them push notifications just like an installed native app. Over the coming weeks, mobile web users will be able to opt in to receiving push notifications from early adopters including Beyond the Rack, eBay, Facebook, FanSided, Pinterest, Product Hunt, and VICE News. Roost and Mobify also provide services that make it easy for developers to integrate web-based push notifications into their site with minimal custom implementation work.
