The last update of the native Android SDK includes support of silent push notifications.

In your API request please use the "ios_sound":"" and "android_sound":"" parameters with an empty value.

It's also available through Control Panel:

Yes, that's possible. Just send ios_sound: "" or android_sound: "", in notification's settings. Request example:

    "request": {
        "auth": "TOKEN",
        "application": "xxxxx-xxxxx",
        "notifications": [
                "send_date": "now",
                "content": "silent notification",
                "ios_sound": "",
                "android_sound": "silent.wav" // you must add silence voice file into you project

Please try again for iOS.

For Android - it is not possible to send silent notification. You can make silent.wav file in you project and send it

P.S. new SDK update will allow silent push on Android.
