Currently, only a hybrid mobile application with a React Native framework can handle push notifications with our Chat SDK. This section explains how to enable push notifications in your React Native app by using Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM), Apple Push Notification service (APNs), and the Chat SDK.
Note: The Chat SDK doesn't support push notifications in web applications delivered through browsers like Chrome and Edge. But you can build your own notification system by using our webhook service to receive notifications for various events happening in your application.
Users in group channels using hybrid mobile application can set their preferences in receiving notifications in their devices. The following is a list of features that our Chat SDK provides.

Turns push notifications on or off in the user's app by using registration token.
