What pre-requisites are required to send web push notifications on Chrome?

Chrome notifications currently require https websites. This may change if Chrome implements encryption of the push payload. Chrome notifications will not work with self-signed certificates (https/ssl). You must have an SSL certificate signed by a trusted Authority.

To send Chrome Notifications you will also need:

  • A credential called the GCM API Key and your project number from your google developer console
  • A JSON manifest file in your website directory
  • A Serviceworker Javascript file in your website directory
