Android push notification not received in emulator

Mission: LET’S PUSH
Task: Send a push notification from console using a push template

Hi - The system actually thinks I completed this mission; the (emulated) device registered successfully and the push notification was sent from Backendless console. But I never saw the notification arrive in the emulated device. Any suggestions on where to start debugging that?

There may be multiple reasons:

  • backendless receiver is not properly registered in the manifest file
  • token has expired
  • mismatch between the channel the device has registered for and the channel where the notification was pushed to

I’d start with logcat logger to see if there are any errors related to receiving (or processing) push notifications.
