Hi, I will try to get this question running again.

How do I get truly silent (no vibration, no alert, no badges, no nothing) using the remote API?

I tried the most stripped down JSON I could possibly try, though I still get an alert with the name of the app and phone vibrates (tested on android).

This is the JSON I tried using (all important data was masked):

        "auth": "AUTH_CODE",
            "android_badges": 0,
            "devices": ["DEVICE_ID"],

Any ideas? Thank you in advance!

You need to add the following into the notifications section of the json. e.g. just after devices:

For Android:

  "android_root_params": {
      "silent": "true"

And for iOS:

     "ios_root_params": {
          "aps": {
              "content-available": "1"

I can confirm this works very well for Android but I'm yet to try it with iOS.
