Firebase Messaging: A simple way to post real-time shared messages using Firebase.
I wanted to create a real-time message board where people could post messages to each other and the app would update with the most recent message that was posted. I wanted the most recent message to be viewable whenever you open the app. I did this using the FirebaseDB component. With this component, you can store data in Google’s cloud and access it from any device. As soon as a message is submitted in this app, the message is stored in the cloud using Firebase. Since Google’s Firebase database always has the most recent message stored, you can always view the most recent message when you open the app, whether it was submitted when you had the app open or closed.
I used the
block to notify the app anytime a new message was submitted from any user of the app.
