Following successful trials with some local authorities, we’re making GOV.UK Notify and GOV.UK Pay, available to all service teams in local government.
In this post the GOV.UK Notify team discuss two new features they've added - sending letters through Notify and receiving text messages from users.
Back in May last year GOV.UK Notify sent its first messages as part of our invite-only beta release. Now - after 9 months, 3.5 million messages, 32 live services, 850 code deployments, and 500 hours of user research — we’re making Notify available to all of central government.
GOV.UK Notify is now a reality with 4 services using the product to send messages to users. And another 70 service teams across central government have contacted the Notify team to say they’d like to use this product to talk to their users.
The government notifications platform will be called GOV.UK Notify. This post explains what the platform will offer service teams in departments and agencies, and how developers will be able to get easy access to the platform to integrate GOV.UK Notify into their services.
