React Native SDK parity
Swrve’s latest React Native SDK now supports all the features and functionality supported by Swrve’s native SDKs, including: Embedded campaigns, user logout (stop tracking), and in-app message personalization and multiline text.
Swrve’s in-app message campaigns now support multiline text elements. Add a text box with one or more lines of static and dynamic text to further personalize your in-app message campaigns and streamline your campaign creation process.
Swrve’s Shopify connector sends order, fulfillment, and payment events to Swrve, which you can use to trigger push notifications. Additionally, customers can use the connector to update customer’s contact data in Shopify upon receipt of a selected user action that is configured as a mobile event in Swrve.
Multi-user batch API
Swrve’s multi-user batch API enables apps to notify Swrve of a vector of events, for one or more users. The use case for this API is sending events in bulk across multiple users, as distinct from the Batch events API, which sends multiple events for a single user.
Swrve’s new user list system allows you to target static lists of users created in your external systems. Add users to a specific User list individually via API or in bulk via CSV, and then target that User list in a Swrve campaign. For example, upload a list of users who are eligible for a specific offer or who have participated in a contest, and then notify that list with a push notification. For more information, see User lists.
Create push notification campaigns in bulk
Swrve’s campaign center now supports creating push notification campaigns in bulk. Prepare and upload a CSV with the details and content for one or more push notification campaigns, then create your draft campaigns with the click of a button. For more information, see Create campaigns in bulk.
Embedded campaign personalization
Embedded campaigns now support personalized values. Include custom user properties when configuring your campaign to inject dynamic content into your message. For more information, see Campaign personalization.
Localized Push via API campaigns
Swrve has introduced localization to Push via API campaigns where you can now define one campaign for any combination of languages and view the performance of the campaign per language. For more information, see Localizing campaign content.
In-app message image personalization
In-app message campaigns now support personalized images. Add image URLs with custom user properties when configuring your campaign content to inject dynamic images into your message. This feature is perfect for promoting user-specific content such as show recommendations, favorite artists, coupons, and more. For more information, see Campaign personalization.
Swrve Privacy API
Swrve now provides an API for customers to automatically channel GDPR and CCPA access and removal requests from their own internal systems. For more information, see the Swrve Privacy API guide.

Embedded campaigns enable customers to create custom content in a text format and download that content to their app. The plain text format gives app developers the power to build tailored, native experiences, while still leveraging all the other features of in-app messaging such as targeting, triggering, A/B testing, localization, personalization, QA testing, and scheduling. For more information, see Introduction to app updates
mParticle connector updates
Swrve now offers support for initializing the SDK using AUTO Mode and setting the Swrve external_user_id in mParticle. The connector has extended its support for sending events to apps on Swrve’s EU stack. Finally, the connector also supports setting a custom identifier other than the mparticle_id as the swrve_user_id. For more information, contact your CSM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Batch email support with Mailjet
Swrve’s new campaign workflow now supports creating one-time and recurring batch emails using Mailjet. Leverage all the same targeting, personalization, localization, and A/B testing by creating emails in Swrve and use an existing Mailjet account to handle email delivery. For more information, see Adding campaign content and Scheduling your batch campaigns.
In-app messaging single platform delivery
The in-app messaging workflow now supports delivery constraints on platform selection and device type (mobile vs. TV). This capability ensures to appropriate in-app message content is delivered to the chosen platform and TV or mobile device. For more information, see Creating in-app messages.
Campaign retargeting for push notifications
Swrve’s audience builder now supports targeting users based on exposure to and interactions with push notifications. Create audience filters based on push notification events, including sent, delivered, influenced, engaged, and clicked button. Base your audience filters on a specific campaign’s push notifications or any push notification sent through Swrve. For more information, see Targeting your audience by push notification events and Intro to campaign retargeting.
To help you organize your campaigns in Swrve, we’re excited to introduce campaign tagging. Create and manage a custom set of tags, and apply them as you set up your campaigns. Then use the tags to quickly filter and customize your Campaigns center view. For more information, see Campaign tagging.

We have augmented our raw events logs with push “Delivered” events from our latest SDKs, and push “Sent” events from our servers.

For more information, see the Campaign metadata section of the Swrve export API guide.
