Hi all, this is my first post!
So those of you out there who are using the BlackBerry Priv may have noticed you are not getting Push Notifications to the device. The Priv for those who don’t know is the flagship Android device from BlackBerry, and a really fine device!
Some of my smarter colleagues have discovered that SmartThings uses Urban Airship for their push notifications and that the lib they use is actually out of date. Older versions of Urban Airship didn’t support BlackBerry since BlackBerry didn’t use to make Android devices. But now that they do, all SmartThings needs to do is pick up the latest lib and voila! Push notifications for all!
If anyone else is having this problem, I’d appreciate seeing if we can get enough interest to “encourage” SmartThings to pick up this change since they are aware of the issue but currently have no timeline for a fix since it’s not high priority. I suspect SmartThings should be able to tell from Google Play analytics how many devices are out there, but I’d definitely like to see from the Community if there’s more support!
