2. Setup FCM push notification in Android

Step 1: Open your project in

Step 2: Open your firebase project console, click the gear icon in the upper left corner and select Project setting

Step 3: Select the Android icon in the Your apps section

If your folder <project-name>/android/app already has a file google-service.json, delete it and make sure the file name is exactly google-service.json

Click next to continue…

Step 6: This step is Add Firebase SDK, because our project has all setup already, so just click next to continue.

Step 7: At this stage, it is possible that firebase will not detect your test device, but that’s okay, just click Skip step to continue with the following steps. (In case Firebase detect can click Continue to console)

Step 8: Back to your project, run flutter clean and then flutter run

Complete the setup process, now push notification from your firebase.

3. Setup FCM push notification in IOS

Note: if you build and have an error and cannot push notifications in the background and the log returns on Xcode ``Can’t end BackgroundTask … ‘’ then you may be experiencing errors with iOS versions smaller than version 13.4 and Xcode from version 11. You can view this error at **Until iOS 13.4, this problem was fixed.

For now, let’s start the setup …

  • Create Project in Console.Firebase.
  • Open your firebase project console, click the gear icon in the upper left corner and select Project setting
  • Select the IOS icon in the Your apps section
  • Fill in the information with:
  • IOS bundle Id: is bundle ID taken from your application. You can find them by going to project flutter, searching for keyword PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER in file ios/Runner.xcodeproj/project.pbxproj
  • Enter app nick name (the name here is only used to distinguish between applications on firebase so you can set arbitrary).
  • App Store ID you can omit this parameter.
  • Click Register app
  • Click on the buttont Download GoogleService-info.plist to download the file.
  • Copy it to the ios directory of your project. If the GoogleService-info.plist file already exists, delete the old file and copy the new file.
  • Click Next
  • This step is already installed in FluxStore source, click Next to continue
  • This step is already included in the FluxStore source, but it seems to be obsolete.
  • You can fix it by removing some unnecessary code. The result will look like this
import UIKit
import Flutter
import GoogleMaps
import Firebase
@objc class AppDelegate: FlutterAppDelegate {
override func application(
_ application: UIApplication,
didFinishLaunchingWithOptions launchOptions: [UIApplication.LaunchOptionsKey: Any]?
) -> Bool {
if #available(iOS 10.0, *) {
UNUserNotificationCenter.current().delegate = self as? UNUserNotificationCenterDelegate

GeneratedPluginRegistrant.register(with: self)
return super.application(application, didFinishLaunchingWithOptions: launchOptions)
  • click Next to continue
  • Next press Skip the step

Complete the process of creating an IOS application on firebase. Next, install Cloud Messaging to be able to push notifications on iOS. Click Cloud Messaging as shown:
