What is a Provisional Push Notification?
Provisional Push Notifications are a type of notification where apps can silently push notifications to users (without sound or banner). They show up in the notification center.
Example provisional push notification
- Only users that have opted into Discord notifications or have not opted out can see a provisional notification from us.
- Some opt-in users can choose to turn their direct push notifications into silent provisional ones via iOS' notification center settings.
What do we mean by not opted out?
During the iOS onboarding process, you may have selected "Maybe Later" and so are in a middle state of neither opt-in nor opt-out when it comes to notifications from Discord.
