UC Browser Gets Instant Push Notifications for Facebook
UCWeb in partnership with Facebook has announced that UC Browser users will receive real-time, or instant push notifications from the social platform.

The company claims that the real-time notifications will be available to its browser users without the need to install any add-on, since the feature is activated within UC Browser. The new UC Browser version is now available to download at ucweb.com.


The Google Play listing of the UC Browser shows the last update on January 12 with no word on the real-time Facebook notifications. One of UC Browser's screenshots however show the feature.

"This is the first time Facebook is teaming up with a mobile browser to allow real-time notifications outside of its native app," UCWeb notes in a statement.

To receive real-time Facebook notifications, users will be needed to logged-in to their Facebook account via the UC browser. To log in, navigate to Menu>Add-on>Facebook>Facebook Notification.

One of the most notable features of the UC Browser's real-time Facebook notifications is that users will receive notifications even after exiting the browser.

"Once logged in, the users will start receiving real-time notifications, even after they exit the browser. Further, they can also manage the type of notifications they receive so they only get the ones that are most important," notes the company.

Earlier this month, a market research firm claimed that UC Browser was the "world's largest third party mobile browser" based on its page view market share. It added that UC Browser had a market share of 41.23 percent in India. The research firm Statcounter suggested that UC Browser's success was driven by its adoption in developing countries.
