What is a Broadcast?

A broadcast lets you send a personalized message to your target audience and will appear as one-on-one direct messages on your audience's devices (as opposed to one large group thread). You can schedule a broadcast to be sent on a later date or sent right away.

What are the benefits of broadcasting?

Broadcasting allows you to save time by sending a personalized message — whether that be general notifications, alerts, promotions, or marketing campaigns — to your target audience, as opposed to messaging each of your contacts separately. You are able to specify your exact target audience and track who is engaging after your broadcast is sent.
