SHENZHEN, China, Dec. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Aurora Mobile Limited (“Aurora Mobile” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:JG), a leading mobile big data solutions platform in China, today announced that it is collaborating with Samsung to jointly develop Samsung’s push notification service for mobile users in China in accordance with the standards set by the Unified Push Alliance in China. Recent testing of the co-developed push notification system complies with Unified Push Alliance’s latest version of the alliance standard T-UPA0002-2019 unified push interface layer specification.
Push notifications are an important feature on Android devices but are highly fragmented and follow no set industry standards in China which affects overall user experience. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China formed Unified Push Alliance to resolve the issue by unifying push notifications on all Android devices that are sent through different apps. The alliance was formed to ensure that unified push notifications will allow handsets to receive push messages without waking up apps. It also aims to improve the user experience on Android devices as unified push notifications will consume less memory, standby power and data. The Alliance currently has 74 members, including Aurora Mobile, Huawei, Oppo, Realme, Oneplus, Xiaomi, Qihoo 360, Alibaba, JD.com and more.
Mr. Fei Chen, President of Aurora Mobile, commented, “We are pleased and honoured to have partnered with a market leading global manufacturer like Samsung to develop the Aurora Push System. After several years of continuous iterations, we can confidently say that the Aurora Push Service leads the market in providing developers with integrated, efficient and stable push services, and helps developers improve overall user stickiness and engagement with a precise and reliable push experience. Our push notification services are currently able to process 23 billion messages per day with a more than 10,000 node server systems and over 1.2 billion API calls per day, and in leveraging the service, developers will command more control than ever over the push effect and content of their messages. Both collaborating with Samsung and being compliant with the latest standards of the Unified Push Alliance technical requirements are important achievements for our team at Aurora Mobile.”
