In-App Messaging is custom views that you can send to a segment of users to show custom messages or give new offers or take to some specific pages. They can be created from your MoEngage account.


Installing Android Dependency

Requirements for displaying images and GIFs in InApp


Starting InApp version 7.0.0, SDK requires Glide to show images and GIFs in the in-apps. You need to add the below dependency in android/app/build.gradle  file.

dependencies {

Display In-App

Call the showInApp() wherever InApp has to be shown in the app as shown below :

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'

Display Nudges

Starting with react-native-moengage version 9.0.0, MoEngage InApp SDK supports displaying Non-Intrusive nudges.

To show a Nudge InApp Campaign call showNudge()

import { ReactMoE, MoEngageNudgePosition } from "react-native-moengage";

ReactMoE.showNudge() // Display Nudge on any available position
ReactMoE.showNudge(MoEngageNudgePosition._NUDGE_POSITION) // Display Nudge on the specific position     

InApp/Nudge Redirection default behavior

On clicking an Inapp or Nudge, MoEngage SDKs will handle only rich landing navigation redirection. 

For the screen name and deep link redirection, your app code should redirect the user to the right screen or deep link. To handle the screen name and deep link redirection, you must implement inapp click callback methods. MoEngage SDK will just pass the inapp payload to this call back code. Implementation steps are mentioned in the InApp callback section of the Integration.

Self-Handled InApps

Self-handled In Apps are messages which are delivered by the SDK but displaying it has to be handled by the App.
To get self-handled In-App call the below method.

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'

The payload for self-handled in-app is returned via a callback. Register a callback as shown below.

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'
/// selfHandledpayload is of type MoESelfHandledCampaignData ReactMoE.setEventListener("inAppCampaignSelfHandled", (selfHandledPayload) => { if (selfHandledPayload && Object.keys(selfHandledPayload).length != 0) { console.log("inAppCampaignSelfHandled", selfHandledPayload); } });

Tracking Statistics

Since display, click, and dismiss for Self-Handled InApp shown controlled by the application we need you to notify the SDK whenever the In-App is Shown, Clicked, or Dismissed. Below are the methods you need to call to notify the SDK. The campaign object provided to the application in the callback for self-handled in-app should be passed in as a parameter to the below APIs.

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'

InApp Callbacks



Make sure you are calling initialize() method of the plugin after you set up these callbacks. Refer doc for more info.

We provide callbacks whenever an InApp campaign is shown, dismissed, or clicked you can register for the same as shown below.

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'

///inAppInfo is of type MoEInAppData ReactMoE.setEventListener("inAppCampaignShown", (inAppInfo) => console.log("inAppCampaignShown", inAppInfo) );
///inAppInfo is of type MoEClickData ReactMoE.setEventListener("inAppCampaignClicked", (inAppInfo) => console.log("inAppCampaignClicked", inAppInfo) );
///inAppInfo is of type MoEInAppData ReactMoE.setEventListener("inAppCampaignDismissed", (inAppInfo) => console.log("inAppCampaignDismissed", inAppInfo) );
///inAppInfo is of type MoEClickData
ReactMoE.setEventListener("inAppCampaignCustomAction", (inAppInfo) => console.log("inAppCampaignCustomAction", inAppInfo) );
Event Type Event Name
InApp Shown inAppCampaignShown
InApp Clicked inAppCampaignClicked
InApp Dismissed inAppCampaignDismissed
InApp Clicked with Custom Action inAppCampaignCustomAction

Contextual InApp

You can restrict the in-apps based on the user's context in the application apart from restricting InApp campaigns on a specific screen/activity. To set the user's context in the application use setCurrentContext() API as shown below.

Set Context

Call the below method to set the context, before calling showInApp().

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'
// replace array elements with actual values. ReactMoE.setCurrentContext(['c1', 'c2', 'ce'])

Reset Context

Once the user is moving out of the context use the resetCurrentContext() API to reset/clear the existing context.

import ReactMoE from 'react-native-moengage'

class MoEInAppCustomAction extends MoEAction{
   /// Key-Value pairs configured with action
   keyValuePair: Map<String, Object>;
   ///Click action type
   actionType: MoEActionType;
class MoEInAppNavigation extends MoEAction {
  ///navigation action type screen/deeplink
  navigationType: MoENavigationType;
  // ScreenName OR deeplink URL based on navigation type
  navigationUrl: String;
  // Key-Value pairs configured with action
  keyValuePair?: Map<String, Object>;
  ///Click action type
  actionType :MoEActionType;

Handling Orientation Change



This is only for the Android platform

Starting SDK version 7.3.0, in-apps are supported in both portrait and landscape modes.
SDK has to be notified when the device orientation changes for SDK to handle in-app display.

Add the API call in the Android native part of your app

Notify the SDK when onConfigurationChanged() API callback is received in your App's Activity class.

import android.content.res.Configuration;
import androidx.annotation.NonNull;
import com.facebook.react.ReactActivity;
import com.moengage.react.MoEReactHelper;

public class MainActivity extends ReactActivity {

       * Returns the name of the main component registered from JavaScript. This is used to schedule
       * rendering of the component.
      protected String getMainComponentName() {
        return "SampleApp";
      @Override public void onConfigurationChanged(@NonNull Configuration newConfig) {

Display status bar

To display the status bar, use the following code snippet during Android SDK initialization:

.configureInApps(new InAppConfig(false))
