Overview

Notifications play a crucial role in alerting users to activity within conversations, such as new messages, replies, reactions, and more. CometChat facilitates user engagement through various notification methods, including:

Push Notifications

Deliver instant updates and improve user engagement. CometChat has the following offerings.

Email Notifications

Dispatch updates at intervals to re-engage users with extended absence using Emails. To use this feature in your applications, checkout our Email Notifications (Extension).

SMS Notifications

Dispatch updates at intervals to re-engage users with extended absence using SMS. To use this feature in your applications, checkout our SMS Notifications (Extension).

Push Notifications

Push notifications play an essential role in modern applications by delivering prompt updates and fostering user engagement. These updates serve as real-time alerts that keep users informed and connected to app even when they're not actively using them. By leveraging push notifications, app developers can maintain ongoing communication with their audience, ensuring their app remains at the forefront of users' mind.

CometChat introduces Push Notifications (Enhanced) featuring advanced capabilities and granular control options, empowering both administrators and users to customize their experience according to specific needs and preferences. While this feature is presently in Beta, the Push Notifications (Extension) is available for those seeking a stable version.

Email Notifications

Email notifications serve as a re-engagement tool, prompting users to return to the app after an extended absence. They provide updates on messages awaiting response or action, received while the user was away. Unlike instant notifications, email alerts are dispatched at predetermined intervals, not in real time.

To use this feature in your applications, checkout our Email Notifications (Extension).

SMS Notifications

SMS notifications function similarly to email notifications as a re-engagement mechanism. They use SMS messages to encourage users to revisit the app after they've been inactive for a while. These notifications update users on conversations requiring attention or action which occurred during their absence. SMS alerts, unlike instant push notifications, are sent out at scheduled intervals instead of instantly.
