Push Notification Delivery Rates On Android Devices, 2022
A critical factor that impacts Push Notification delivery rates is the OEM manufacturer. Chinese OEMs such as Xiaomi, Oppo, and Vivo have customer OS built on top of the Android OS. These customizations restrict background app activity. This disconnects your customers’ devices from Google Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM).
When devices get disconnected from FCM, many of your Push Notifications don’t reach your customers.
