During my research, in UWP we can use the Azure Notification Hubs or Web Server to do the push notification, I have sucessfully tried the Azure Notification Hubs. There are a lot of steps need to configuration. Based on the search result, we can also use the web server to do the push notification? What it is the difference? Which one is better to choose for push notification?

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    The principle of Azure Notification Center and Web Server Notification Center are the same. For UWP applications, both need to push messages through WNS ( Windows Notification Server ).

    In this document, they all serve the role of AppService, the difference is that Azure is out of the box, and if you deploy the web service, you need to write adaptive code by yourself.

    In this document provided by Azure, the configuration of WNS is also mentioned, so you can understand that Azure Notification is the Web Server provided by Azure.
