The Pushbullet notification platform sends messages to Pushbullet, a free service to send information between your phones, browsers, and friends. The free tier is limited to 500 pushes per month.
Pushbullet is a notify platform and thus can be controlled by calling the notify service as described here. It will send a notification to all devices registered in the Pushbullet account. An optional target parameter can be given to Pushbullet to specify specific account’s devices, contacts or channels.
||Contact’s email address||
||Contact’s phone number||
If using targets, your own account’s email address functions as ‘send to all devices’. All targets are verified (if exists) before sending, except email.
