Send Messages to Mobile Devices Subscribed to a Topic

You can also use Amazon SNS to send messages to mobile endpoints subscribed to a topic. The concept is the same as subscribing other endpoint types, such as Amazon SQS, HTTP/S, email, and SMS, to a topic, as described in What is Amazon Simple Notification Service?. The difference is that Amazon SNS communicates through the notification services in order for the subscribed mobile endpoints to receive notifications sent to the topic.

To send to endpoints subscribed to a topic

  1. Follow the steps as described in Subscribe to a Topic. You just need to select Application in the Protocol drop-down menu and then enter the mobile endpoint Amazon Resource Name (ARN) in the Endpoint box.

  2. Follow the steps to publish messages to a topic, as described in Publish to a Topic, then all mobile endpoints that are subscribed to the topic will be sent the message.
