Android Live Updates

Use Live Updates to display current data from your app in an Android notification, home screen widget, or embedded view.

Android Live Updates bring functionality similar to iOS Live Activities to the Android platform, providing an easy way to display dynamically updated content in a custom notification, home screen widget, or custom view embedded within an app.

They can make it easier to keep information updated in real time instead of receiving multiple notifications from the same app for things like a game’s latest score, food delivery status, or rideshare arrivals.

We’ve updated our Android SDK and Push API to support:

  • Implementing and registering handlers for Live Updates
  • Starting, updating, ending, and clearing Live Updates

Live Updates are an

AXP feature. Minimum SDK required: Android 16.10.0.
