To write your Firebase Cloud Messaging Android client app, use the FirebaseMessagingAPI and Android Studio 1.4 or higher with Gradle. The instructions in this page assume that you have completed the steps for adding Firebase to your Android project.

FCM clients require devices running Android 4.1 or higher that also have the Google Play Store app installed, or an emulator running Android 4.1 with Google APIs. Note that you are not limited to deploying your Android apps through Google Play Store.

Set up Firebase and the FCM SDK

  1. your project-level build.gradle file, make sure to include Google’s Maven repository in both your buildscript and allprojects sections.
  2. Add the dependency for the Cloud Messaging Android library to your module (app-level) Gradle file (usually app/build.gradle ):
implementation 'com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:20.1.0'

Edit your app manifest

A service that extends FirebaseMessagingService. This is required if you want to do any message handling beyond receiving notifications on apps in the background. To receive notifications in foregrounded apps, to receive data payload, to send upstream messages, and so on, you must extend this service.

\<service android:name=".java.MyFirebaseMessagingService" android:exported="false"\> \<intent-filter\> \<action android:name="com.google.firebase.MESSAGING\_EVENT" /\> \</intent-filter\> \</service\>

Install the RNFirebase Messaging package

Add the RNFirebaseMessagingPackage to your android/app/src/main/java/com/[app name]/MainApplication.java:

import io.invertase.firebase.messaging.RNFirebaseMessagingPackage;

then activate package

@Override protected List\<ReactPackage\> getPackages() { @SuppressWarnings("UnnecessaryLocalVariable") List\<ReactPackage\> packages = new PackageList(this).getPackages(); // Packages that cannot be autolinked yet can be added manually here, for // example: packages.add(new AsyncStoragePackage()); packages.add(new RNFirebaseDatabasePackage()); packages.add(new RNFirebaseAdMobPackage()); packages.add(new RNFirebaseMessagingPackage()); return packages; }
