Flutter VoIP Push Notification

pub package Flutter VoIP Push Notification - Currently iOS >= 8.0 only

Motivation

Since iOS 8.0 there is an execellent feature called VoIP Push Notification (PushKit), while firebase_messaging does not support voip push notification which is only available on iOS >= 8.0 which is the reason for this plugin.

To understand the benefits of Voip Push Notification, please see VoIP Best Practices.

Note 1: This plugin works for only iOS. You can use firebase_messaging for Android by sending high priority push notification

Note 2 This This plugin was inspired by react-native-voip-push-notification and firebase_messaging

iOS

The iOS version should be >= 8.0 since we are using PushKit.

Enable VoIP Push Notification and Get VoIP Certificate

Please refer to VoIP Best Practices.
