Design push notifications that will be sent to Android devices

The Android tab allows you to design push notifications that will be sent to Android users.

Build your Android push

Using content elements

You can add emojis and dynamic content to your Android push, for both the title and the body of the message.

Click the smile icon to display a list of emojis and click the one you want to add to your message.

Click on the user icon to add data from your user attribute fields. Type the name of the field you want to use, or select it from the presented pick list.

Click on the code icon to add content snippets. Type the name of the field you want to use, or select it from the presented pick list.

As well as the title (which will default to the app name) and the body of the message, the push notifications can also include an image. Review our best practices for push notifications.

You can select the default action that will occur when the user clicks on the notification; the options available are:

  • None (selected by default): opens app
  • Open URL: to open it either inside or outside the app. Enter the URL you wish to use in the accompanying input field.
  • Go to deeplink: to open a certain part of the app. Enter the app deeplink you wish to use in the accompanying input field. See our deeplinks guide for more details.
  • In-App message: automatically creates a new tab called In-app in the campaign builder from which users can design an in-app message by following our in-app messages creative guidelines.

Additionally, you can select what push category your message falls under. Start typing the category name that you want to assign, a pick list of matching names is provided, select the one required.

Each category allows users to set up default action and a list of buttons for your message. Push categories must be created beforehand. Further information can be found in the push categories guide.

Finally, a key/value payload can be added to the notification delivered to the user. Customers may have custom payloads available as part of their integration. Payloads are not initially visible to the user but if the push is opened the app can access some payload values from the push message and perform some custom behaviour with them.

Preview the message

The right menu shows a preview of what your message will look like on an Android device. If you are using dynamic data, you will need to send a test message to see the data included.

Multi-language and A/B testing

Users can create a multi-language campaign with new titles and messages based on the languages they have selected in the Setup tab.

Multi-language campaign which addresses English and Spanish speakers.

Also, if the A/B testing option has been enabled in the Setup tab, it is possible to send out different different variations of the same message from a single campaign to a portion of the targeted users. You can then compare them and determine which method was most successful. Each variant can be created by clicking on the variant key (A, B, etc).
