By the way, friends, many people are facing a lot of difficulties in installing tax service due to the update coming after Oro. As you know, after the launch of Oreo, a lot of limits have been imposed on the services and those limits mean that you will start the services in Android with a lag so that the users mobile does not drain the battery. There are some such limitations imposed on some such services in Android Oreo.

Now comes that there are many ways to start the services, as the limitations of the services have been exposed in Oreo, the developers are engaged in setting up the methods like Job Scheduler, Alarm Manager, Work Manager. Services. People also start services based on GcmNetworkManager.

Before implementing GcmNetworkManager, let us explain how GcmNetworkManager works in Android mobile device. GCM works on network manager’s sync-data mechanism in which signal is generated in android mobile based on bandwidth of GCM network in android device and based on the same single we can start our services through broadcast receiver.

Now let’s talk about how GcmNetworkManager is implemented programmatically in Android Studio.

Dependency :

implementation ‘com.google.android.gms:play-services-gcm:17.0.0’

How to implement :

GcmNetworkManager mGcmNetworkManager = GcmNetworkManager.getInstance(this);
OneoffTask task = new OneoffTask.Builder() .setService(Myservice2.class)
 .setExecutionWindow(0L, 3600L) .setRequiredNetwork(Task.NETWORK_STATE_UNMETERED) .build();

public class MyBroadcastReceiver extends BroadcastReceiver {

//MediaPlayer mp;

@RequiresApi(api = Build.VERSION_CODES.O)


public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent)


Log.d(“Start”,”My Broadcast….”);
