I have an app that uses Cordova Push Plugin V5 (http://ngcordova.com/docs/plugins/pushNotificationsV5/), to deliver notifications on iOS and Android devices. Works great. I want to do the same on Kindle Fires. Long story short, it doesn’t work, and from the logfiles it seems the reason is there’s no Google Play Services available.
"W/PackageManager( 1623): com.google.android.gms is not installed for user 0" followed by failure to get notification/device tokens.
This makes sense - google play services don’t come by default on Kindle Fire. Question is:
What is best practice for how to use Google Play Services on Kindles (FireOS) with Ionic? Is there a way to do that without requiring the end user to install something besides my app?
Another alternative would simply be to implement a FireOS native alerting but I’d rather not have two alerting infrastructures if I can avoid it…
(PS Ionic V1)
