- go for example to https://cleverpush.com/en/test-notifications/
- press the first big blue button
- allow notifications (this refers to Notification API notifications, not push notifications)
- The site gives a popup with “Registration failed - push service error” and developer console also shows the same error.
This happens to me on 2 computers, a different push notification test website and also on my own test website 100% of the time.
The expected result is what happens with other browsers (e.g. chrome and firefox), that the subscription to push notification completes and the browser receives a push notification from the server.
OS: Windows 10
Brave is up to date
Version 1.33.106 Chromium: 96.0.4664.110 (Official Build) (64-bit)
Note: Brave “Push Notification Test” website https://support.brave.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058972091-Push-Notification-Test is not actually testing push notifications. It is testing just the Notification API, which works, not the Push API and Service Worker API that are used to subscribe to actual push notifications.
Note: By enabling “Use Google services for push messaging” in the privacy and security settings subscribing to push messages starts to work. This option is not on by default, so the default behavior of the browser is broken.
