Update previous rich notifications

Your Android™ app can generate an updated rich notification to a previous rich notification (to the original and to any number of previous updates to the original). The updated rich notification can then be sent to the remote device via notify() by specifying the UUID of the original rich notification. Upon update a callback is initiated, which the Android app can receive via an event listener.

If the original rich notification and any number of updated rich notifications have been posted but not yet sent, all will be sent after a remote wearable device connects to the Android device. Upon receipt by the remote device, the user can open the original and all updated rich notifications. However, after opening the original and any of the updated rich notifications PRIOR to the latest update, the user cannot re-open them. The latest update rich notification is retained and can be re-opened by the user, until it is deleted either manually or because it exceeds the 50 rich notification limit per RN Android app.

For details about RN callback event listeners, see Manage rich notification callbacks.

getUuid() Returns the Universally Unique IDentifier (UUID) of the rich notification.
