Fast broadcast to millions of devices

Azure Notification Hubs is a massively scalable mobile push notification engine for quickly sending millions of notifications to iOS, Android, Windows or Kindle devices, working with APNs (Apple Push Notification service), GCM (Google Cloud Messaging), WNS (Windows Push Notification Service), MPNS (Microsoft Push Notification Service) and more. Tailor your notifications to specific customers—or entire audiences—with just a few lines of code and do it across any platform.

Works with any back end

Notification Hubs is flexible enough to plug into any back end—Microsoft .NET, PHP, Java, Node.js—whether it is located on-premises or in the cloud. This makes it easier to instantly update your mobile apps and engage your customers.

Target any audience with dynamic tags

Broadcast push notifications to everyone at once or target specific customer devices using the Notification Hubs tagging feature. Tags let you segment users based on activity, interest, location or preference, so you deliver the right content to the right person at the right time.

Localisation made easier with templates

If your app covers multiple markets, the templates feature of Notification Hubs gives you a handy way to send localised push notifications, so you are speaking to customers in their languages. Templates also eliminate the hassle of storing the localisation settings for each customer or creating hundreds of tags.

Designed for massive scale

Quickly scale to millions of mobile devices and billions of notifications without re-architecting or sharding. Notification Hubs automatically handles the infrastructure necessary to scale your message to every active device with low latency.
