Push Notifications from the Web?

Hi there,

I am making a web app that I want to send push notifications to users' phones. I have two questions:

1. The tutorial I am seeing covers how to setup push notifications for mobile games(iOS/Android) not web(ie. https://api.playfab.com/docs/tutorials/landing-players/push-notification-basics) yet in this response(https://community.playfab.com/questions/10406/questions-on-push-notifications.html) you say that push notifications can be setup for any device. By that do you mean I can send notifications to a user's phone from a web app, like at a given time for example, and if so is there tutorial covering that?

2. Eventually I want to submit my game to Steam and Apple stores, does that include more setup for push notifications? Thank you!

We provide API calls which enable Push Notifications for iTunes and Google Play applications, currently (in both cases, a token is required which is available on the service in question for your application). We will be providing Web app push (https://www.w3.org/TR/push-api/) in a future release, but we don't have a schedule for when that will be available, currently.

Awesome ok. When you said "API calls which enable Push Notifications for iTunes and Google Play applications", which API calls specifically and is a token all you would need to set it up? So n certifications needed or anything like you would need for iOS push notifications?

Hi Brendan, ok I'm confused now. The reason I asked you my question in the first place is because those links you sent me are api calls for someone building a game on a mobile device. But you are saying you can push to iTunes and Google Play from web applications and I asked for a tutorial for that.
