    GBAtemp now has push notifications enabled so you can receive push notifications on both desktop and mobile for your forum alerts.

    What are Push Notifications?

    If logged in, push notifications enable you to keep track of your GBAtemp alerts such as new private messages, likes received and others replying or quoting to you.

    push_desktop.png push_mobile.png

    Push notifications will be sent to your compatible browser on a supported device (see below) even when you are not actively browsing the site.

    Please be aware that push notifications are not instantaneous and are delayed beyond your normal forum alerts by up to a minute.

    How do I enable Push Notifications?

    Starting today, when visiting GBAtemp and logged in you should be prompted with the following message:

    push_popup.png

    Click 'Allow' and a prompt from your browser should follow to whitelist GBAtemp for push notifications. That's it!

    Can I change which Push notifications I receive?

    You will receive the same alerts you would for forum alerts. These can be configured in your Alert Preferences.

    Push Notifications aren't working for me

    See the below troubleshooting steps. If you are still experiencing difficulties please reply to this thread and let us know your browser and device.
    • See the list of compatible browsers below.
    • Ensure you have JavaScript enabled.
    • Ensure you are not using a browser extension that may be blocking it such as NoScript.
    Compatible browsers

    • Safari: Supported only on Mac OS X. Not supported on iOS.
    • Firefox: Supported on Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux. Not supported on iOS.
    How do I disable Push Notifications?

    Chrome: click the padlock or (i) icon to the left of the site URL in the address bar and choose 'site settings' - from here find Notifications and disable it.
    Safari: Go to Safari > Preferences (or press Command-Comma). Click on the Notifications tab. From there you can manually disable/enable notifications from select sites, remove all notifications, or access your system-wide Notification Preferences.
    Firefox: click the padlock or (i) icon to the left of the site URL in the address bar and choose the ">" icon, then More Information > Permissions - from here find Notifications and disable it.

    You will need to revert the above if you wish to re-enable push notifications again.

    But my browser is Google Chrome, the exact last version.
    Now if this version is based of Chromium or not, I have no idea.

    As long as this isn't something that constantly gets shoved in my face (like Facebook and other sites) then that's cool.

    did you make sure to enable notifications for the site?

    1) here:

    upload_2018-2-21_10-23-28.png

    2) here: https://gbatemp.net/account/alert-preferences

    3) when you receive an alert, if you clear the alert in Xenforo within 1 minute, you wont be getting the web push notification. The alert takes 1-2 minutes maximum to arrive (ie: it can be faster but at most it'll take 1-2 minutes).

    I don't see you in the list of registered notification users, so you haven't subscribed properly. Check again all the steps :)

    Thank you. I get highly irritated by every site I go to, most of which I'll never even visit again, now spamming me with a "can we send you notifications" message. To make it worse, "never allow" is hidden and you need to click twice to select it.

    Do you know if something similar is available in Chrome on Android?

    Is there a way to request the push notification dialog again? I chose allow, but then denied it on the firefox alert because of muscle memory and there's no way to manually add a site to the list.

    I already tried logging out, closing and opening the browser.
