Hello @shaheen,

You need to add metadata in your custom message. The metadata should have a pushNotification key and the value is the title of the push notification. For eg:

var meta = {
    pushNotification: "A custom Notification"

Hope this solves your issue.

Hello Mayur,
Thanks for the solution, its working but when I edit the custom message its giving “message edited” as notification, I want change with some text, Please assist.
Also one additional empty message is coming if i edit the custom message.
How to prevent this empty message.

Hello @shaheen,

We were able to reproduce the issue at our end, where on editing a message the push notification title was message edited. I have created a GitHub for the same. You can stay updated on the issue by following the GitHub Issue.

Regarding the empty message, whenever you edit a message you will receive a action message with an action edited. You need to handle such messages on your end by either choosing to display it or not.
