Android notification action reply input not returning reply_text

See original GitHub issue


When pushing a notification on Android with a reply action, I am not getting the reply_text back. The notification pops up on the device with the reply action, I can enter a message and click send, but the notification that the application receives, has no “reply_text” field with the message that was typed in.

On iOS this working fine, I see the reply_text field and can handle it accordingly. Any idea why this could be broken?

reason in file RNPushNotificationAcions can’t get text in remoteInput => can’t callback to js.

Fix: In filepath: “node_modules/react-native-push-notification/android/src/main/java/com/dieam/reactnativepushnotification/modules/”

edit Intent actionIntent = new Intent(context, RNPushNotificationActions.class); to Intent actionIntent = new Intent(context, com.dieam.reactnativepushnotification.modules.RNPushNotificationActions.class);


edit int flags = Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.M ? PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT | PendingIntent.FLAG_IMMUTABLE : PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT; to int flags = PendingIntent.FLAG_UPDATE_CURRENT;
