    $crl = curl_init();

    $headr = array();
    $headr[] = 'Content-type: application/json';
    $headr[] = 'Authorization: ' . $accesstoken;
    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);

    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_URL, $URL);
    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headr);

    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_POST, true);
    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_data);
    curl_setopt($crl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

    $rest = curl_exec($crl);

    if ($rest === false) {
        // throw new Exception('Curl error: ' . curl_error($crl));
        //print_r('Curl error: ' . curl_error($crl));
        $result_noti = 0;
    } else {

        $result_noti = 1;

    return $result_noti;

public function notifyUser(Request $request){

   $user = User::where('id', $request->id)->first();

   $notification_id = $user->notification_id;
   $title = "Greeting Notification";
   $message = "Have good day!";
   $id = $user->id;
   $type = "basic";

   $res = send_notification_FCM($notification_id, $title, $message, $id,$type);

   if($res == 1){

      // success code


     // fail code


send_notification_FCM() with following parameter $notification_id, $title, $message, $id,$type. When you want to send push notification to the mobile device, that time you need to call the send_notification_FCM() with specified parameters.
