In part 2 of the notification tutorial, we will add a tap action to our notification that will open an activity, and we will add an action button that will trigger a BroadcastReceiver to execute some code in it’s onReceive method.
In both cases we have to create an Intent and wrap it into a PendingIntent, which we pass to our NotificationCompat.Builder. We define the tap action with setContentIntent and add our action buttons with addAction.
Also we will change the color of our notification content with setColor and specify it’s behavior with setAutoCancel and setOnlyAlertOnce.

  7. Hi Sir, I am a newbie and have couple question:
    1) For a messaging app where I want to tell the current user that another user2 sent him a message. Suppose the user is not currently using the application on his device (all activity are closed). Does this code needs to be in a background service in order to listen to a "new message flag" (for example) in the background? Then if the new message flag is true, pass the needed message, for example, " user1 sent you a message" to your "send to channel 1" method and call it?

    2)so what would be the steps needed (High-level so we can see the general approach only) to be taken to prevent the app from opening twice after a user clicks on it just like in your video?

    3) What are the pros and cons of using this verus Firebase ( Again i'm very new and when looking up notifications on youtube, one or 2 firebase tutorial approach)

    Thank you very much for your time and anybody who provides some feedback.

    Explanation was good. But you should have opened emulator two times. Because you shown 2 thing.
    1. Uses of pending intent to start activity.
    2. Broadcast reciver with pending intent.
    Please don't do this in your future videos.
