So I'm aware that C2DM is deprecated and that we eventually have to switch to GCM, but I wasn't expecting them to kill it off just yet.

My application is currently using C2DM, which is still working fine on devices running Android 2.3 etc. Even when the application has been completely terminated.

However, on ICS, C2DM messages does not arrive at all when you terminate the app.

The Google Cloud To Device messaging service does not longer show up under the running "Google Services".

Does anyone have any official information about the removal of the C2DM service process in ICS?

BTW migrating to GCM seems to be pretty straight forward: – Flow Sep 7 '12 at 13:09
Yes, I am a developer, but Stack Overflow doesn't seem to take kindly to questions like this either (Questions about the features included in the android operating system). I could just as well be asking about this as an end-user, because as I am suspecting, google seems to have removed a feature in Android. – Pandafox Sep 7 '12 at 13:22
I don't think this should be migrated to Stack Overflow; it wouldn't be a good fit here. That said, I'm not sure it's on-topic here. I'd be inclined to keep it. – Al E. Sep 7 '12 at 13:28
I suggest to ask such questions simply on the official group/forum. In fact this has already happened:!topic/android-c2dm/… It's the place were you will likely get the best answers. – Flow Sep 7 '12 at 13:31
