Appearance Change the appearance of a notification; icons, colors, visibility etc.
Behaviour Customize how a notification behaves when it is delivered to a device; sound, vibration, lights etc.
Channels & Groups Organize your notifications into channels & groups to allow users to control how notifications are handled on their device
Foreground Service Long running background tasks can take advantage of a Android Foreground Services to display an on-going, prominent notification.
Grouping & Sorting Group and sort related notifications in a single notification pane.
Interaction Allow users to interact with your application directly from the notification with actions.
Progress Indicators Show users a progress indicator of an on-going background task, and learn how to keep it updated.
Styles Style notifications to show richer content, such as expandable images/text, or message conversations.
Timers Display counting timers on your notification, useful for on-going tasks such as a phone call, or event time remaining.


Below you'll find guides that cover the supported iOS features.

Behaviour Control how notifications behave when they are displayed to a device; sound, crtitial alerts etc.
Categories Create & assign categories to notifications.
Interaction Handle user interaction with your notifications.

Jest Testing

To run jest tests after integrating this module, you will need to mock out the native parts of Notifee or you will get an error that looks like:

 ● Test suite failed to run

    Notifee native module not found.

      59 |     this._nativeModule = NativeModules[this._moduleConfig.nativeModuleName];
      60 |     if (this._nativeModule == null) {
    > 61 |       throw new Error('Notifee native module not found.');
         |             ^
      62 |     }
      63 |
      64 |     return this._nativeModule;

Add this to a setup file in your project e.g. jest.setup.js:

If you don't already have a Jest setup file configured, please add the following to your Jest configuration file and create the new jest.setup.js file in project root:

setupFiles: ['<rootDir>/jest.setup.js'],

You can then add the following line to that setup file to mock notifee:

jest.mock('@notifee/react-native', () => require('@notifee/react-native/jest-mock'))

You will also need to add @notifee to transformIgnorePatterns in your config file (jest.config.js):

transformIgnorePatterns: [

Detox Testing

To utilise Detox's functionality to mock a local notification and trigger notifee's event handlers, you will need a payload with a key __notifee_notification:

  title: 'test',
  body: 'Body',
  payload: {
    __notifee_notification: {
      ios: {
        foregroundPresentationOptions: {
          banner: true,
          list: true,
      data: {}

The important part is to make sure you have a __notifee_notification object under payload with the default properties.
