Sending Push Notifications

A push notification is used to deliver information, such as a message, from a backend system to an application on a mobile device to increase application engagement and usage. The notification can be sent at anytime, even when the user is not actively using the targeted application.

Azure Notification Hubs provide a scalable push infrastructure for sending mobile push notifications from any backend to any mobile platform, while eliminating the complexity of a backend having to communicate with different platform notification systems.
