Live Tracking Teliver Guides

Send Push Notfications To Android Devices Via Teliver


FCM enables Teliver SDK to efficiently manage and function the application procedures. The sturdiness of the SDK is controlled by the Server, which in return provides greater real time accuracy and better Battery management. It additionally also helps in recovery of application crashes.

If FCM has already been setup:

The below steps will include the setup of Firebase project for your mobile app, and add the google-services configuration file to your codebase. These steps could be skipped if in case FCM integration has already been set-up in your mobile application.

API project – Creation:

A Firebase project is essential in order for Cloud Messaging Projects to function. Hence, configuration file and credentials for your project would be generated in this process.

1)      Initially create a new project in firebase console. For Apps with existing firebase project a new one need not be created. If your Google Project is associated with your mobile app, the existing could be selected from the ‘Import Google Project’ button available.



2)      From the displayed screen – click on ‘Add firebase to your android app’ and proceed further with the setup steps. If an existing Google project is being imported, you could download the config file without going through the setup.


3)      When provoked, app’s package name has to be entered. Entering the package name of your app which is in use is crucial; this can only be set when you add an app to your Firebase project.

4)      Download the google-services.json file at the very end. The file is also available to download any time later on.

5)      If you haven’t done so already, copy this into your project’s module folder, typically app/.

Add the configuration file to your project:

The Google Services plugin for Gradle parses configuration information from the google-services.json file. Add the plugin to your project by updating your top-level build.gradle and your app-level build.gradle files as follows:

1)      Add the dependency to your project-level build.gradle:

buildscript {


dependencies {


classpath ''



2)      Add the plugin to bottom your app-level build.gradle:

apply plugin: ''


Where is the FCM key?

FCM key can be located in your Firebase Console under Project settings > Cloud Messaging.
