Push Notification In China

Since Google play services are banned in China, The messaging SDK provides Baidu push services as a substitute for FCM. The messaging SDK requires an api key and a secret key from Baidu:

Baidu dependency:

implementation 'com.github.AmityCo.Amity-Social-Cloud-SDK-Android:amity-push-baidu:x.y.z'

Note: Baidu push services require number of additional permissions. You can find a list of permissions here.

Baidu API key is needed for Baidu push services initialization:

Note: The messaging SDK always consider FCM as a primary push provider and Baidu as a secondary push provider. If the messaging SDK detects Google play services on the device, Baidu push services won't be initialized.
