Notification Center 3.x.x


Install MoEngage's Inbox Plugin to your application, using the npm package manager. And then link your native dependencies.

$ npm install react-native-moengage-inbox
$ react-native link react-native-moengage-inbox

Note: This plugin is dependent on react-native-moengage plugin. Make sure you have installed the react-native-moengage plugin as well. Refer to the link for the same.

Android Installation


Add mavenCentral() repository in the project-level build.gradle file.

buildscript {
    repositories {

allprojects {
    repositories {

In android/settings.gradle add the following:

include ':react-native-moengage-inbox'
project(':react-native-moengage-inbox').projectDir = new File(rootProject.projectDir, '../node_modules/react-native-moengage-inbox/android')

In android/app/build.gradle add the following

dependencies {
    implementation project(':react-native-moengage-inbox')

where $sdkVersion should be replaced by the latest version of the MoEngage SDK.

Add the MoEngage React Package in the Application class's getPackages()

public class MainApplication extends Application implements ReactApplication {

  private final ReactNativeHost mReactNativeHost = new ReactNativeHost(this) {
    protected boolean getUseDeveloperSupport() {
      return BuildConfig.DEBUG;

    protected List getPackages() {
          List packages = new PackageList(this).getPackages();
          packages.add(new MoengageInboxPackage());
          return packages;

  @Override public void onCreate() {

  public ReactNativeHost getReactNativeHost() {
      return mReactNativeHost;

In case you are facing issues with the import add the below import statement in your java file.

import com.moengage.react.inbox.MoengageInboxPackage;

iOS Installation

In the case of iOS, the native dependency is part of the core SDK itself, so there is no need to include any additional dependency for supporting Notification Center.



Make sure to configure AppGroup ID in App Target and Set up Notification Service Extension in your iOS Project, for the SDK to save the received notifications.
