Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) replaces Google Cloud-to-Device Messaging (C2DM) as the mechanism that is used to push data to Android applications running on Android mobile devices. This article provides instructions for configuring Symantec Mobile Security 7.2 (SMS 7.2) to use GCM.
Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) enables Symantec Mobile Security to quickly communicate with Android mobile devices. GCM lets you push commands to Android devices instead of waiting for the device to check in.
Note: To receive GCM messages, a Google Gmail is required to be set up on the devices running Android 4.04 or older.
You set up GCM in two phases:
To create a new project and obtain the Project ID number and API server key
To configure Symantec Mobile Security to use GCM
Symantec Mobile Security is now configured to send GCM data to Android mobile devices.
