    • For React Native 0.60 or higher, use this package's version 3.0.0 or higher

    • For React Native 0.59 or lower, use this package's version 2.0.0 or lower

    • Run npm install react-native-android-local-notification --save to install using npm.

    • Add the following two lines to android/settings.gradle:

    include ':react-native-android-local-notification'
    project(':react-native-android-local-notification').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-android-local-notification/android')
    • Edit android/app/build.gradle and add the annoated lines as below:
    dependencies {
        compile fileTree(dir: "libs", include: ["*.jar"])
        compile ""
        compile "com.facebook.react:react-native:0.16.+"
        compile project(':react-native-android-local-notification')  // <- Add this line
    • Edit android/app/src/main/AndroidManifest.xml and add the annoated lines as below:
    <manifest xmlns:android=""
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED"/>           <!-- <- Add this line -->
        <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE"/>                          <!-- <- Add this line -->
          <activity android:name="com.facebook.react.devsupport.DevSettingsActivity" />
          <receiver android:name="com.staltz.reactnativeandroidlocalnotification.NotificationEventReceiver" />   <!-- <- Add this line -->
          <receiver android:name="com.staltz.reactnativeandroidlocalnotification.NotificationPublisher" />       <!-- <- Add this line -->
          <receiver android:name="com.staltz.reactnativeandroidlocalnotification.SystemBootEventReceiver">       <!-- <- Add this line -->

          </receiver>                                                                         <!-- <- Add this line -->

    The RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED permission is used to re-register all scheduled notifications after reboot. Requesting VIBRATE permission is required if you want to make the device vibrate while sending notifications.

    • Edit (usually at android/app/src/main/java/com/<project-name>/ and add the annoated lines as below:
    import android.content.Intent;
    import android.os.Bundle;
    import com.facebook.react.ReactActivity;
    import com.facebook.react.ReactPackage;
    import com.staltz.reactnativeandroidlocalnotification.NotificationPackage;    // <- Add this line 
    public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {
        protected List<ReactPackage> getPackages() {
            return Arrays.<ReactPackage>asList(
                new NotificationPackage()                  // <- Add this line 


    Creating Notifications

    Just do:

      id: 1337,
      subject: 'Notification With Payload',

    Handle Notification Click Event

    Register a listener on sysNotificationClick events to handle notification clicking:

    Notification.addListener('press', function(e) {

    The action and payload of the notification can be retrieved on these events:

    Notification.send({ message: 'Message', action: 'ACTION_NAME', payload: { data: 'Anything' } });
    Notification.addListener('press', function(e) {
      switch (e.action) {
        case 'ACTION_NAME':
          console.log(`Action Triggered! Data: ${}`);
        case 'ANOTHER_ACTION_NAME':
          console.log(`Another Action Triggered! Data: ${}`);

    Once you no longer need to listen to sysNotificationClick events de-register the listener functions with:


    Manage Scheduled Notifications

    Sometimes you'll need to get the scheduled notifications (which has delay or sendAt set up) that you had created before. You can use Notification.getIDs() to retrieve an array of IDs of available (i.e. will be send in the future) scheduled notifications.

    Notification.getIDs().then(function(ids) {
      console.log(ids);  // Array of ids

    and use Notification.find(notificationID) to get data of an notification.

    Notification.find(notificationID).then(function(notification) {

    or just cancel it with Notification.delete(notificationID):


    Want to cancel all scheduled notifications set by your app? Sure:


    To update a scheduled notification, just use Notification.create() with the same id.

    Clearing Notifications

    When you want to clear a notification from the system statusbar, just use:





    npm i react-native-android-local-notification
