Mobile push notifications allow you to receive push notifications of new comments on your Apple or Android devices. They make it easier than ever to keep up with your readers and moderate comments on the go.
To start using push notifications:
- Enable the “Mobile Push Notifications” module from the Jetpack tab in your Dashboard.
- Done! Enjoy your new notifications.

How to turn on Mobile Push Notifications
A user of your site must go to the Jetpack admin page and link their account to a WordPress.com account. That ensures that they have their own channel for push notifications. This step isn’t necessary if you’re the main user who connected the Jetpack site to WordPress.com. In that case you’ll receive notifications without any further adjustments.
How does it work?
As soon as you get a new comment on a post you’ve published, a push notification is sent to your phone. You will see the name of the commenter, which post they commented on, and a short excerpt of the comment. Swipe over the notification to view the comment.
Note: If the author of the post has not connected his account with WordPress.com, push notifications will be sent to the main user who connected the Jetpack site to WordPress.com
