Hi Krishna,

Passing expiry value is not directly supported currently. We are working on this feature and would hit the production by end of this month.

For multiple push notification issue, we accept the gcm registeration Id in mehtod call, however you are free to pass any valid value. You can try with canonical value and see if this works out. We are also replicating this issue and update you about the same.

Hey Krishna, There is no relation between multiple Push Notification on device and Canonical Ids , So we are replicating it and update you soon.

For expiry of Push Notification, you can send a Send Time along with Push Message and handle it accordingly while receiving Push Message on receiver side and you can define your expiry time may be 2 or 5 min what you want , in your turn based game.

In case of further query is concern , please revert to us.
