Can u share the json format how you are sending when app in BGD/FGD?
this will be the json format for sending JSON

    "title":"Notification title",
    "body":"Notification body",
  	"title":"actual data title",
    "body":"actual data body"
    "to":"your device token",

@yashwanth493 thanks for the reply I get notification when app in BGD/FGD,i want to run my FCM notification when app is completely closed/killed like watsapp, this is my code in this you can see JSON as well.

Thank you,

try with this body

I tried this body but it’s not working

can anyone find the solution?

Is your issue on Android or iOS?

I am facing this issue on android

I haven’t used FCM but if you only need FCM for push notifications then I suggest you use OneSignal. It’s much easier to use and I haven’t encountered issues with it at all, something I can’t say about the old GCM plugin (FCM predecessor) I used previously

I haven’t use OneSignal before so can you tell me how would i get notification using OneSignal in my code(explain it above in my forum) .

thank you

ok thanks i will try this out.

i have been found after almost 3 days.

Ionic Push Notification - Android and iOS working

it’s absolutely working pretty much fine for me.

@nirav_ionic, my notification worked fine my issue is that when i swiped up or kill/close only that time my app unable to get notification from FCM.


just follow his code they working in foreground,background & also in kill mode.

i tried this ,not working. can you share your git/code?

I have code right now with me, but for some reason I unable to share on Github. So, can you please share your code with me and let me check.

i have already shared it please see above.

using https://ionicframework.com/docs/native/push/

initPushNotification() { 

    if (!this.platform.is('cordova')) {
      console.warn('Push notifications not initialized. Cordova is not available - Run in physical device');
    const options: PushOptions = {
      android: {
        senderID: '927955702181',
        sound : 'true',
      ios: {
        alert: 'true',
        badge: 'true',
        sound: 'true',
        clearBadge: 'true'
      windows: {}
    const pushObject: PushObject = this.push.init(options);

    pushObject.on('notification').subscribe((notification: any) => console.log('Received a notification 11', notification));
    pushObject.on('registration').subscribe((data: any) => {
      console.log('device token -> ' + data.registrationId);
      //TODO - send device token to server
     pushObject.on('error').subscribe(error => console.error('Error with Push plugin' + error));
