Today marks the first GA release of our Channels API extension, open channels. This new platform service extends the Channels API to send a notification to anything. For the first time, a customer can send personalized, interactive notifications at the right time and place across their digital marketing stack.
We built this to address a growing market need from enterprise businesses faced with an unprecedented expansion of marketing technologies and notification channels: a centralized platform from which to send 1:1 notifications to each of their customers in the optimal moment, and to any device or messaging platform. With Urban Airship, our customers can integrate once and notify anything!
