I was wondering if Pushwoosh had the ability to send a notification through their 3rd party Java API to push a notification on the phone but not actually display it in the phone's notification tray.
The use case is this: - I want to update a stream of messages when new content comes in automatically. I'm currently using a long polling technique with an available manual refresh. I was hoping to replace that with a pushwoosh notification when a message is sent to that stream and handle it accordingly. Obviously, I don't want a badge to show for each and every message for that stream. That would be very obnoxious.
Is this something pushwoosh can do? Or should I investigate websockets?
Since I'm currently using pushwoosh for other notifications, I wanted to see if they had this behavior before I switched over to websockets.
