}

Additional dependencies you may require:

Feature Dependency

Push notifications

com.google.firebase:firebase-messaging:20.2.0

Request notification permissions

To process push notifications successfully on Android 13 (API level 33) and later, the app must request the new Notification runtime permission for sending non-exempt notifications from an app.

Declare the permission

To request the new notification permission from your app, update your app to target Android 13 (API level 33) and declare POST_NOTIFICATIONS in your app’s manifest file, as in the following code snippet:

<manifest ...>
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.POST_NOTIFICATIONS"/>
    <application ...>
        ...
    </application>
</manifest>
