What is Samsung Push Service

Samsung Push Service app, developed by Samsung, is an application that sends you “push notifications” about apps and offers on Samsung Apps. It displays a new message or badge as long as there is an update. The main purpose of this internet-based communication platform is to allow publishers of websites, applications, and central servers to make messaging requests.

What can Samsung Push Service do

When the utility receives the “push” notification message from a publisher of a Samsung application, Samsung Push Service then begins running in the background and downloading or updating certain services exclusive to Samsung. They could be the S Calendar, S Voice, S memo, messaging, or any other Samsung only service or app. It is responsible for executing notifications, messages, and e-mails. To summarize up, features include:

1. New message is displayed in the pop-up window.

2. Display a badge on the application icon for a new message.

3. Display new message on the notification bar.
