[Deprecated] Gotify-UP - Android

UnifiedPush using Gotify-UP is no longer supported. It does not support new versions of the UnifiedPush protocol. It will continue working with existing apps, but there are no guarantees. Check out one of the many other UnifiedPush distributors.

Gotify is “a simple server for sending and receiving messages”.

Get it on F-Droid


  • A server to connect to. A server is open to registration at https://gotify1.unifiedpush.org, though it is recommended to host your own so your data stays private and the public server doesn’t overload.

Setting Up

  • Install the application.
  • Connect to the server.
  • You’re ready!

Self Hosting

If you are self-hosting the server, you will need to add a rewrite-proxy to the default configuration.


It can be achieved with the following nginx rule (which uses lua):

location /UP {
        local json=require("cjson")
        local req = ngx.req.get_body_data()
        local newreq = { ["message"] = req }
        local body = json.encode(newreq)
    if ($request_method = GET ) { 
        return 200 '{"unifiedpush":{"version":1}}';

    proxy_set_header        Content-Type application/json;
    proxy_pass  ;
    proxy_set_header            Host $host;

    # Force https
    if ($scheme = http) {
        rewrite ^ https://$server_name$request_uri? permanent;


It can be achieved with UnifiedPush Common Proxies, which is a standalone program that can be installed to run as a rewrite proxy for Gotify. It can also run with docker.
