Briefly about The Unified Push Alliance
In October last year, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology founded the Unified Push Alliance. It’s an industry organization looking to harmonize Android’s push notification systems and services, in Beijing.
Android’s push notifications are a key feature of devices using the system. But Chinese developers create their own notification systems using third-party push services. Push messages run in the background and can slow operating speeds and reduce battery life. The alliance has been formed to address this issue and unify Android push notifications sent through different apps.
The organization will put an end to the disorder among Chinese Android developments. In future, Android devices will be able to receive push notifications without waking up apps, leading to conservation of memory, battery life and data traffic and improving the user experience of Android phones in the country.
