What is Chrome Rich Push Notification

In our previous post about Web Push Notifications, We explained how Marketers can boost customer engagement by sending push notifications which have a copy of few words with emoji and a small 192 * 192 brand image logo. But from Chrome 56 on wards, Marketers can now add rich content within a push notification including big images, GIF s, videos. Both Desktop and Android versions of Chrome browser provide support for this feature.

Google Chrome rich push notifications have been used for a while in both Android and iOS native apps. But now this is the first time that this feature has been extended to Chrome Push Notifications.

Why Marketers Should Use Chrome Rich Push Notification


Every Marketer Knows Push Notifications are better in performance as compared to emails and old methods of user engagement. Push Notifications are now being used extensively by marketers, as they are getting more customer engagement and can boost added interactivity.

After Chrome announced the launch of Rich Push notification, chrome push notification got more visually interactive as marketers can now add images/gifs.

With Chrome Rich Push Notification, Marketers started seeing the increase in CTR(click through rate), ROI(return on investment) and customer retention.

In an Experiment, two notifications were sent one with rich image and another one without image with the same content. Results were shown better in push notification with the rich image. Chrome Notification with rich images generates as much as 68% higher CTR. Click Through Rate is defined as Clicks / Impressions for a Web Push Notification.
