This depends on your target platform:
- If your target platform is iOS, you cannot receive a push notification on the iOS simulator. In this instance, you must test push notifications on a physical device.
- If your target platform is Android, you can test a push notification on an emulator if the emulator target uses a version of Google APIs to receive the push notifications.
To test push notifications on a device, you must first register your device as a QA device in Swrve. In addition, your development team must have performed the required technical prerequisites. In particular, they must have configured the following:
- To enable an app to send push notifications to iOS devices, they must create an iOS push certificate and upload it to Swrve.
- To enable an app to send push notifications to Google Play devices, they must create an Android server key and input it into Swrve.
