Extended Google Cloud Messaging Features No Longer Invite-Only For Developers, Gains Support For Desktop Chrome And Adds Several New Features

Last year, at Google I/O 2013, some major new features and improvements were announced for Google Cloud Messaging (GCM) -the replacement for Cloud to Device Messaging (C2DM). A couple of the new bits were even featured during the keynote, particularly notification syncing, which the audience loved.

Plenty of developers were accepted, but it certainly wasn't available to everybody.
