@ovasileva I'm retagging this and putting into tracking. It's something we're likely to want to track if we ever want to add push notifications anywhere in the reading stack (which looks like iOS may want to do soon off the back of trending)

Closed as part of board grooming process.

This task is about push notifications generally across the Readers platforms, and should be kept open.

Did discussions about doing this in echo first get anywhere?

I can't speak to all of the particulars, but I've added Roan and Joe to this task. Roan and Corey have been in discussion about technical architecture matters concerning push architecture as I understand. Web push is presently part of the FY 18-19 plan.

Jon, are you referring to the notion of something like scheduled jobs with Echo out to the message brokers (e.g., Mozilla, Apple, Google) or something to that effect?

Yes, but not specific to Echo, just with Echo as a consumer! An extensible Web push infrastructure would be incredible and open up a lot of possibilities to both WMF and volunteers. Exciting!
