The Navigator.push read-only property is a PushManager object providing a way to receive notifications from third party servers. These are real-time notifications provided by external services directly to installed apps. This implements the SimplePush API that does not require sending real data on those notifications. Also, you can see this documentation for additional details, a guide to using the API, and sample code.


var push = window.navigator.push;
