When choosing between providers for push notifications, mobile game developers often evaluate Firebase Notifications and OneSignal, two of the best push notification platforms on the market.
Both are free to start, but there are big differences between the platforms that should be addressed. Support, feature development and Firebase's cost (which has several hidden costs), often lead developers to quickly migrate off of Firebase when their games start to grow.
We built OneSignal because Firebase Notifications, like other solutions, fell flat when it came to reliability, ease of use, support, and price.
We've designed OneSignal to be the clear choice for developers looking for either a free service to get started, or an enterprise-level solution for their scaling business. OneSignal is a natural fit for startups or businesses that have outgrown Firebase’s capabilities or who have a non-technical marketing team seeking autonomy.
