Push notifications have been around for over 10 years. First introduced in 2009 for iOS, they quickly rolled out across all the major mobile operating systems. Then in 2014 web push came along.
As of today, push notifications are supported across Apple iOS, Google Android, Huawei Android, Amazon Echo, macOS, Windows, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Edge… the list goes on.
In this blog post for OneSignal I look at the anatomy of push notifications across each operating system.
I’ve also open sourced a Push Notification UI Kit for Figma.
