parsing – Parse Push notifications on Android

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I am making an app that will use the Parse.com Push notifications, however it is not working like the guide shows.

The issue is, i have set up the Parse push activity fine, registered the new installation, and am able to see which channels a user is subscribed to. I am able to receive the Push notification from parse, but unable to send from my app.

There are no errors following in logcat, and parse records that a push was sent, but shows that there are “no subscribers” to the channel.

In my onCreate:

Parse.initialize(MainActivity.this, "***", "***");
    PushService.setDefaultPushCallback(this, MainActivity.class);
    PushService.subscribe(this, "Everyone", MainActivity.class);

The Push code:

ParsePush push = new ParsePush();

The manifest:

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.INTERNET" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.VIBRATE" />
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WAKE_LOCK" /> 


<service android:name="com.parse.PushService" />
    <receiver android:name="com.parse.ParseBroadcastReceiver">
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.BOOT_COMPLETED" />
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.USER_PRESENT" />

There are no errors in logcat, everything seems to be sent smoothly, but in parse i get the following messages:

My Push

You sent this push notification to 0 recipients.

Targeting : channels includes "Everyone"
Sending date : November 28th, 2013 at 9:40 AM
Expiration : None
Full target : { "channels": { "$in": [ "Everyone" ] } }
Full data : {"alert"=>"Hey!"}

The only changes i can see from the push that i send vs the Push that parse.com sends is the “Full data” field

Parse Push

Targeting : channels includes "Everyone"
deviceType is "android"
Sending date : November 28th, 2013 at 9:21 AM
Expiration : None
Full target : { "channels": { "$in": [ "Everyone" ] }, "deviceType": "android" }
**Full data : { "alert": "hi" }**

Thanks in advance for any help / ideas

How to&Answers:

You should turn on push notification from parse setting on the website parse.com

App -> Settings -> Push Notifications -> Client push enabled (should be on)


In my case, I defined a packageName in the AndroidManifest.xml different of the build.gradle… it took 3 hours to realize the error. Maybe it could help 🙂


Just You uninstall your application from emulator and you verify that the name of your package in gradle enter image description here

make shore that the applicationId “Your Package” is the same in Android manifest enter image description here
