Discover more advanced techniques involved in advanced push notification services.
- [Narrator] Central to virtually every advanced push notification concept are the ideas of tagging and templates. Really everything is about the payload. The payload is the content that is getting sent over. With Xamarin Forms and Azure Notification Hub you can broadcast push notifications to everyone at once or target specific user devices using tagging. Tags let you segment users based on all kinds of things, activities, interests, location, or preferences. These can be ad-hoc and dynamic.
A user's tags could change constantly for example when they're in a specific postal code. Tags can be registered and unregistered at will so that notifications can be received for that device only when they're in a specific postal code. Templates provide a way to send localized push notifications to eliminate a lot of the hassle of storing localization settings. Templates give us the ability to target not just device specific settings, but also culture and localization settings and give us the ability to combine templates that focus on cultures and languages with tags that focus on segmentation.
