    1. Are you looking for something like described here ?

    2. Do you mean like a service ?

  • You can also have a look at V-Play Engine for qt-based mobile apps and games, which offers ready-to-use plugins for notification services like Google Cloud Messaging, One Signal or Local Push Notifications.

    The plugins work cross-platform on iOS and Android and are usable directly from QML:

    import VPlayApps 1.0
    import VPlayPlugins 1.0
    App {
      // ...
     GoogleCloudMessaging {
       //  ...
       onNotificationReceived: {
         console.debug("Received notification payload is", JSON.stringify(data))


  • I have a similar question. I want to show toast notifications on Android. It is very easy to implement using this guide. Unfortunately it only works if I call the QAndroidJniObject::callStaticObjectMethod from the main application.

    If I call the notifications from service part, the service crashes. Why is this happening? How can I make it work even from service?
