    Microsoft Edge now supports web push notifications via Push API


    Microsoft Edge now supports web push notifications via the Push API, beginning with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Web push notifications allow you to build re-engaging experience by delivering timely, relevant notifications to users, even when your browser or web app is closed.

    To help you get started with push messages and to demonstrate how they work across different browsers, we’re happy to introduce a new Microsoft Edge tutorial: Web Push Notifications.



    Push notifications expand your reach to your users in a timely, power-efficient and dependable way. Users are re-engaged with customized and relevant content that will have them coming back for more.

    Our tutorial is inspired by astrology, drawing parallels between the idea of messages from the zodiac being stored in the cloud and the way the architecture of push notifications is structured. Take a look to learn to set up your site for push notifications – both the front-end and the back-end.



    As with all our demos, you can fork the tutorial itself on GitHub and even set it up locally for your own experimentation. To learn more about building with Push and Service Worker, check out Ali Alabbas’ session from Microsoft Build 2018: Building performant and re-engaging web apps with Service Worker.



    To try out push notifications in Microsoft Edge, visit the tutorial and click on the button that says, “Initiate push”, accept the permission prompt, and immediately close the tab (or browser). You should get a notification within 5 seconds after clicking the button below. When you click the notification, it will take you right back to the web push tutorial, so you can continue learning about push messages.

    Try it out and let us know what you think!
