Channel Deprecated

BearyChat was discontinued. As such, this channel will no longer receive updates and is being deprecated.



You can install the package via Composer:

Once the package is installed, you need to register the service provider by adding the following to the providers array in config/app.php:


This package is based on laravel-bearychat, you may publish the config file if you have not done yet:

$ php artisan vendor:publish --tag=bearychat

Setting up the BearyChat service

You may create an Incoming Robot in your BearyChat team account, and read the payload format.


Basic Usage

You can now use the channel in the via() method inside the Notification class.


namespace App\Notifications;

use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;
use NotificationChannels\BearyChat\BearyChatChannel;
use ElfSundae\BearyChat\Message;

class InvoicePaid extends Notification
    public function via($notifiable)
        return [BearyChatChannel::class];

    public function toBearyChat($notifiable)
        return (new Message)

You can also use a BearyChat Client to create the message for notification, and the client's message defaults will be used for creating this new Message instance.

public function toBearyChat($notifiable)
    return bearychat('admin')->text('New VIP has been paid!');
  • For more details about BearyChat Client and Message, please read the documentation of the BearyChat PHP package.
  • For more details about BearyChat facade or bearychat() helper function, please read the documentation of the original Laravel package.

Routing Notifications

To route BearyChat notifications to the proper Robot, define a routeNotificationForBearyChat method on your notifiable entity.

class User extends Authenticatable
    use Notifiable;

    public function routeNotificationForBearyChat()
        return '';

You can also route the user, channel or configured client in the routeNotificationForBearyChat method.

  • '#iOS-Dev' will route the notification to channel "iOS-Dev".
  • 'http://webhook/url' will route the notification to an Incoming Robot.
  • 'Server' will route the notification via a client which named "Server" in your config file config/bearychat.php, and the message defaults of this client will be applied to the outgoing notification message.
