Migrating Notification Hubs from FCM Legacy HTTP to FCM v1
Update as of June 2023:
Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) is a service that, among other things, facilitates developers sending push notifications to Google Play supported Android devices. ANH currently communicates with FCM using the Legacy HTTP protocol. FCM v1 is an updated API that offers more features and capabilities. Google announced that they will be deprecating FCM Legacy HTTP and will stop supporting it on June 20, 2024. Therefore, developers who use Azure Notification Hubs to communicate with Google Play supported Android devices today, will need to migrate their applications and notification payloads to the newer format. ANH will continue to support FCM Legacy HTTP until Google stops accepting requests. Once the new FCM integration is complete, ANH will announce when customers can begin migrating over. A migration plan with more details will be available Monday, July 31st.
