Overview

The ability to send push notifications to a large number of different clients specifically, quickly, and easily is a major challenge in modern, mobile application scenarios. Notification Hubs make it possible to send messages to clients on various platforms (Windows Store, Windows Phone 8, iOS, Android) with a single API call. The addressees can be set as individual users (who may have several devices), groups of users, or all users of associated client Apps. This lets news portals, for example, send targeted current news matching their users' interests, or event sites can send schedule updates.
