    Manually register module in (if you did not use react-native link):

    public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {
      private final ReactNativeHost mReactNativeHost = new ReactNativeHost(this) {
          protected boolean getUseDeveloperSupport() {
            return BuildConfig.DEBUG;
          protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
          return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
              new MainReactPackage(),

    var PushNotification = require('react-native-push-notification');

        permissions: {
            alert: true,
            badge: true,
            sound: true
        // Should the initial notification be popped automatically
        // default: true
        popInitialNotification: true,
          * (optional) default: true
          * - Specified if permissions (ios) and token (android and ios) will requested or not,

        requestPermissions: true,

    Handling Notifications

    When any notification is opened or received the callback onNotification is called passing an object with the notification data.

    Notification object example:

        foreground: false, // BOOLEAN: If the notification was received in foreground or not
        userInteraction: false, // BOOLEAN: If the notification was opened by the user from the notification area or not
        message: 'My Notification Message', // STRING: The notification message
        data: {}, // OBJECT: The push data

    Scheduled Notifications

    PushNotification.localNotificationSchedule(details: Object)


      message: "My Notification Message", // (required)
      date: new Date( + (60 * 1000)) // in 60 secs

    Custom sounds

    In android, add your custom sound file to [project_root]/android/app/src/main/res/raw

    In iOS, add your custom sound file to the project Resources in xCode.

    In the location notification json specify the full file name:

    soundName: 'my_sound.mp3'

    Cancelling notifications

    1) cancelLocalNotifications


    The the details parameter allows you to specify a userInfo dictionary that can be used to match one or more scheduled notifications. Each matched notification is cancelled and its alerts removed from the notification centre. The RN docs suggest this is an optional parameter, but it is not.

    PushNotification.cancelLocalNotifications({id: '123'});

    2) cancelAllLocalNotifications


    Cancels all scheduled notifications AND clears the notifications alerts that are in the notification centre.

    NOTE: there is currently no api for removing specific notification alerts from the notification centre.

    Repeating Notifications

    (Android only) Specify repeatType and optionally repeatTime while scheduling the local notification. Check the local notification example above.

    For iOS, the repeating notification should land soon. It has already been merged to the master

    Notification Actions

    (Android only) Refer to this issue to see an example of a notification action.

    Two things are required to setup notification actions.

    1) Specify notification actions for a notification

    This is done by specifying an actions parameters while configuring the local notification. This is an array of strings where each string is a notificaiton action that will be presented with the notification.

    For e.g. actions: '["Accept", "Reject"]' // Must be in string format

    The array itself is specified in string format to circumvent some problems because of the way JSON arrays are handled by react-native android bridge.

    2) Specify handlers for the notification actions

    For each action specified in the actions field, we need to add a handler that is called when the user clicks on the action. This can be done in the componentWillMount of your main app file or in a separate file which is imported in your main app file. Notification actions handlers can be configured as below:

    import PushNotificationAndroid from 'react-native-push-notification'
    (function() {
      // Register all the valid actions for notifications here and add the action handler for each action
      DeviceEventEmitter.addListener('notificationActionReceived', function(action){
        console.log ('Notification action received: ' + action);
        const info = JSON.parse(action.dataJSON);
        if (info.action == 'Accept') {
          // Do work pertaining to Accept action here
        } else if (info.action == 'Reject') {
          // Do work pertaining to Reject action here
        // Add all the required actions handlers

    For iOS, you can use this package to add notification actions.

    Set application badge icon

    PushNotification.setApplicationIconBadgeNumber(number: number)

    Works natively in iOS.

    Uses the ShortcutBadger on Android, and as such will not work on all Android devices.

    Sending Notification Data From Server

    Same parameters as PushNotification.localNotification()

    iOS Only Methods

    PushNotification.checkPermissions(callback: Function) Check permissions

    PushNotification.getApplicationIconBadgeNumber(callback: Function) get badge number

    PushNotification.abandonPermissions() Abandon permissions


    npm i fanapptic-react-native-push-notification
