Introducing Smart Notifications A/B testing

abtesting

It happens that we guess factors impacting the responsiveness of our users to notifications. So we wanted to experiment, instead of, you know guessing. We wanted to create a real-time, smart and a beautiful A/B testing experience for push notifications.

With PushBots you and your team can conduct A/B experiments whether manually (a classic 50/50 split), or automated; we send two variants to a subset of your users, then we send the better performing message automatically to the rest of your users. You can adjust the wait time before comparing results.

The thing we wanted to focus on most, was UX. We wanted to see real-time experiment result stats and delivery stats. I’m perfectly aware there’s a lot to improve, but this seems to be a good start. The feature works on Mobile apps as well as websites, all-in-one!

Every audience is different, so we hope this helps you figure out what works for your users! Thanks again for checking this out! If you have any questions at all, we are here to help!

Introducing Customer Profiles

cp_web-min.png

Your customers are people not devices (that's why we are also renaming Devices section to Customers), and that's also why we are introducing a new way to build customer profiles by tying devices to users to see who they are, what they have done in your app, and to give you a compelling way to search, find them and communicate with them using it.

From now on you can use our simple API to attach customer data, like name, email, gender, and phone.

Better filtering for your users

Sometimes, you just need more filters to narrow down your search for a certain segment or user.

We have redesigned our devices page so you can get the filters you need to reach an amazing granularity of user selection!

You can make complex queries with a very easy to use interface. For example, you can find out who were the users who were active in the past 30 days, or find users who subscribed on a certain day, in a certain country. and much more!

Head to your app, click devices and experience our re-designed filtering.

Introducing Smart Scheduling! [beta]

Deciding when to send a push message is tricky. For some apps, it's even trickier. As their user base grows to include users from different countries/time-zones and with different individual behaviors.

In an attempt to answer this question, we are pleased to announce our latest feature; Smart Scheduling. Using the power of AI and machine learning, we have analyzed millions of push messages, identified different patterns and built a predictive model that is able to predict the ideal notification delivery time for each user.

This is an experimental feature that will evolve and get smarter the more we use it.

Enhanced performance for live apps

Upon many requests, we have decided to allocate more and better resources for live apps. From now on, all apps, are by default in the Sandbox environment. When you release your app to either the Google Play store or the Apple App Store and get more than 200 downloads, you will see the option in your app settings to change app status to production.

Notifications sent from live apps will experience better performance and will be prioritized vs ones sent from sandbox apps.
