Google Cloud Messaging vs ZeroPush: What are the differences?

Google Cloud Messaging: 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; ZeroPush: Simple Push Notifications for Developers. ZeroPush provides a clean web-friendly API to APNS and GCM for mobile push notifications.

Google Cloud Messaging and ZeroPush belong to "Mobile Push Messaging" category of the tech stack.

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.

On the other hand, ZeroPush provides the following key features:

  • Quick and secure setup with Apple
  • Server Libraries for quick server side integration
  • ZeroPush Cocoapod client side integration
