Google Cloud Messaging vs PushBots: What are the differences?
Developers describe Google Cloud Messaging as "Simple and reliable messaging to reach over a billion devices". Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) is a free service that enables developers to send messages between servers and client apps. This includes downstream messages from servers to client apps, and upstream messages from client apps to servers. On the other hand, PushBots is detailed as "Light SDK for mobile push notifications". Send your messages to any mobile platform, directly from your dashboard. Choose your audience based on user name, specific device, geographic location or send a broadcast. In a blink!.
Google Cloud Messaging and PushBots can be primarily classified as "Mobile Push Messaging" tools.
Some of the features offered by Google Cloud Messaging are:
- Versatile Messaging Targets: Distribute messages to your client app in any of three ways — to single devices, to groups of devices, or to devices subscribed to topics.
- Downstream Messaging: For purposes such as alerting users, chat messaging or kicking off background processing before the user opens the client app, GCM provides a reliable and battery-efficient connection between your server and devices.
- Upstream Messaging: Send acknowledgments, chats, and other messages from devices back to your server over GCM’s reliable and battery-efficient connection channel.
