From today, CERTA will support silent push messaging, which triggers the app in the background without giving the user a notification. It enables apps to refresh with new data before the user is notified.
Use case: Synchronisation without notifying
As a use case for a media or news app, a silent broadcast push notification to the app can silently update the latest episode or a recent breaking news item. In the financial, travel or retail industry, a silent, narrowcast push can activate the user’s app to synchronise processed payments, tickets, purchases or files.
