We are happy to announce that PushAlert now supports Web Push on AMP enabled websites. You get the same fast loading websites that appear at the top of search results and also grow your audience with push notifications.
AMP or Accelerated Mobile Pages, makes webpages load faster on mobile devices. The AMP team at Google has created a spec which adds constraints on what capabilities are supported on AMP pages. Web push has been added to that spec and we have enabled it for our customers.
Great news for publishers
Most early adopters of AMP have been news publishers and they would benefit greatly with support for AMP Web Push. You can easily add a subscription button at the end of an article for visitors to subscribe to notifications. You can always re-engage with this audience and convert them into regular readers.
