I was wondering if Pushwoosh had the ability to send a notification through their 3rd party Java API to push a notification on the phone but not actually display it in the phone's notification tray.

The use case is this: - I want to update a stream of messages when new content comes in automatically. I'm currently using a long polling technique with an available manual refresh. I was hoping to replace that with a pushwoosh notification when a message is sent to that stream and handle it accordingly. Obviously, I don't want a badge to show for each and every message for that stream. That would be very obnoxious.

Is this something pushwoosh can do? Or should I investigate websockets?

Since I'm currently using pushwoosh for other notifications, I wanted to see if they had this behavior before I switched over to websockets.

You can use "silent" (aka "newsstand" on iOS) notifications. This would trigger the app to run in the background but will not display any notification.
