5 Myths About Push Notifications - BUSTED!

Learn why myths are myths, and you should use Push Notifications.

Myths about Push Notifications explained

When first hearing about Push Notifications, many people have some reservations as they don’t fully understand how this new technology works. To take away your fears and doubts, we listed the Top 5 Reservations we hear and why you don’t have to be afraid of them!

Push Notifications don’t work on iOS, so I won’t use them.

First of all, this statement in itself is true. Indeed, Apple has been Apple and went their own way as usual. Although they are supporting Service Workers (the technique behind Push Notifications) in their mobile browsers, they still for some reason do not allow Push Notifications to the fullest - yet. BUT have no fear! Although you might not be able to subscribe your iOS visitors, there are still a lot of people out there you can reach! In fact, the vast majority of people are actually using Android devices, and unfortunately for Apple, this number is growing everyday.

In the last 12 months (April 2018-April 2019), worldwide about 75% of mobile users are on an Android device, only 23% are using iOS and the other 3% are using other or unknown operation systems. If you want to know how your country is doing, you can easily play around with the data here.

Reaching 75% of your visitors with Push Notifications compared to 0% is still a good number, right? 😉
