GcmPubSub

public class GcmPubSub extends Object

This class was deprecated.
GCM is deprecated and replaced by Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM). See the FCM migration guide for details on how to migrate to FCM.

GcmPubSub provides a publish-subscribe model for sending GCM topic messages.

An app can subscribe to different topics defined by the developer. The app server can then send messages to the subscribed devices without having to maintain topic-subscribers mapping. Topics do not need to be explicitly created before subscribing or publishing—they are automatically created when publishing or subscribing.

 String topic = "/topics/myTopic";
 String registrationToken = InstanceID.getInstance(context)
          .getToken(SENDER_ID, GoogleCloudMessaging.INSTANCE_ID_SCOPE, null);
 GcmPubSub.getInstance(context).subscribe(registrationToken, topic, null);
 // Messages published to the topic will be received as regular GCM messages
 // with 'from' set to "/topics/myTopic"

To publish to a topic, see GCM server documentation.
