//Getting registration token
String refreshedToken = FirebaseInstanceId.getInstance().getToken();
//Displaying token on logcat
Log.d(TAG, “Refreshed token: “ + refreshedToken);

public class FireBaseMessagingService extends FirebaseMessagingService implements Constants {
private static final String TAG = "MyFirebaseMsgService";
private static int count = 0;
public void onMessageReceived(RemoteMessage remoteMessage) {
//Displaying data in log
//It is optional
Log.d(TAG, "Notification Message TITLE: " + remoteMessage.getNotification().getTitle());
Log.d(TAG, "Notification Message BODY: " + remoteMessage.getNotification().getBody());
Log.d(TAG, "Notification Message DATA: " + remoteMessage.getData().toString());
//Calling method to generate notification
remoteMessage.getNotification().getBody(), remoteMessage.getData());
//This method is only generating push notification
private void sendNotification(String messageTitle, String messageBody, Map<String, String> row) {
PendingIntent contentIntent = null;
Uri defaultSoundUri = RingtoneManager.getDefaultUri(RingtoneManager.TYPE_NOTIFICATION);
NotificationCompat.Builder notificationBuilder = new NotificationCompat.Builder(this)
.setLargeIcon(BitmapFactory.decodeResource(getResources(), R.drawable.ic_launcher))
NotificationManager notificationManager =
(NotificationManager) getSystemService(Context.NOTIFICATION_SERVICE);
