Watch this video where our dedicated Customer Success team will guide you through the onboarding process at Pushwoosh, from setting up projects to sending your first communications.



For Gradle Versions less than 6.8

Include the following Maven repository URL in project's build.gradle:

allprojects {
    repositories {
        google ()

Add pushwoosh library dependencies into your application's build.gradle:

implementation 'com.pushwoosh:pushwoosh-firebase:6.+'

Replace "+" with the current version of Pushwoosh and Android Support libraries.

For Gradle Versions 6.8 or Higher

Locate the Settings.gradle file in the root directory of your project.

Open the Settings.gradle file and declare the repositories like this:

// pluginManagement {
    repositories {

Then, save the changes.

Next, open your project in Android Studio. Go Tools > Firebase > Cloud Messaging and click "Set up Firebase Cloud Messaging":

Connect your app with Firebase, grant Android Studio access to your Google account (if needed), and choose your Firebase project.

Then add FCM to your application and accept changes:

Add the following metadata to AndroidManifest.xml:

<meta-data android:name="com.pushwoosh.appid" android:value="XXXXX-XXXXX" />
<meta-data android:name="com.pushwoosh.senderid" android:value="@string/fcm_sender_id" /> 

Please note that you must add meta-data inside the <application> tag


  • com.pushwoosh.appid is your Pushwoosh Application Code

  • com.pushwoosh.senderid is the Sender ID you received from Firebase Console

Please note that you need to add fcm_sender_id to res/values/strings.xml of your Android project:

    <string name="fcm_sender_id">123456789012</string>
