Laravel FCM (Firebase Cloud Messaging) Notification Channel

Latest Version on Packagist Software License StyleCI Quality Score Total Downloads

This package makes it easy to send notifications using Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) with Laravel 5.5+, 6.x, 7.x and 8.x.

Version 2 Released (March 4, 2020)

V2.0.0 has been released and FCM API calls has been migrated from legacy HTTP to HTTP v1 (docs from Firebase here). This is a breaking change so notifications using v1.x should not upgrade to v2.x of this package unless you plan on migrating your notification classes.



Install this package with Composer:

composer require laravel-notification-channels/fcm:~2.0

Setting up the FCM service

This package now uses the laravel-firebase library to authenticate and make the API calls to Firebase. Follow the configuration steps specified in their readme before using this.

After following their configuration steps, make sure that you've specified your

in your .env file.


After setting up your Firebase credentials, you can now send notifications via FCM by a Notification class and sending it via the

. Here is an example:
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\FcmChannel;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\FcmMessage;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\AndroidConfig;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\AndroidFcmOptions;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\AndroidNotification;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\ApnsConfig;
use NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\ApnsFcmOptions;

class AccountActivated extends Notification { public function via($notifiable) { return [FcmChannel::class]; }

public function toFcm($notifiable)
    return FcmMessage::create()
        ->setData(['data1' => 'value', 'data2' => 'value2'])
            ->setTitle('Account Activated')
            ->setBody('Your account has been activated.')

// optional method when using kreait/laravel-firebase:^3.0, this method can be omitted, defaults to the default project
public function fcmProject($notifiable, $message)
    // $message is what is returned by `toFcm`
    return 'app'; // name of the firebase project to use


You will have to set a

method in your notifiable model. For example:
class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable;


 * Specifies the user's FCM token
 * @return string|array
public function routeNotificationForFcm()
    return $this->fcm_token;


You can also return an array of tokens to send notifications via multicast to different user devices.

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable;


 * Specifies the user's FCM tokens
 * @return string|array
public function routeNotificationForFcm()
    return $this->getDeviceTokens();


Once you have that in place, you can simply send a notification to the user by doing the following:

$user->notify(new AccountActivated);

Available Message methods


class contains the following methods for defining the payload. All these methods correspond to the available payload defined in the FCM API documentation. Refer to this link to find all the available data you can set in your FCM notification.
setName(string $name)
setData(array $data)
setNotification(\NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\Notification $notification)
setAndroid(NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\AndroidConfig $androidConfig)
setApns(NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\ApnsConfig $apnsConfig)
setWebpush(NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\WebpushConfig $webpushConfig)
setFcmOptions(NotificationChannels\Fcm\Resources\FcmOptions $fcmOptions)
setTopic(string $topic)
setCondition(string $condition)
