Getting Started with Amazon Pinpoint

To begin using Amazon Pinpoint, add a project to AWS Mobile Hub. Then, choose your project in the Amazon Pinpoint console to define user segments, create push notification campaigns, and view analytics.

Adding a Project to Amazon Pinpoint

Before you can use Amazon Pinpoint, you must create a project in the AWS Mobile Hub console at https://console.aws.amazon.com/mobilehub/.

Mobile Hub is an AWS service that helps you create and configure mobile app backend features and integrate them into your app. When you create your project, add the Messaging & Analytics feature. After you create the project in Mobile Hub, it becomes available in Amazon Pinpoint.

When you add the Messaging & Analytics feature, you choose one or more messaging channels to enable. After you create a project that supports at least one channel, you can manage channel settings, or enable other channels, in the Amazon Pinpoint console. For more information about creating a project and enabling a specific channel, see:
