Remove dependance on google play services
Protonmail android app is dependent on google play services and that is obviously against privacy and security.
Users who removed/disable google play services or used vanilla "lineageos" without gapps cannot get the mail client work properly.
Google play services collect every possible piece of info about the user; location, body sensors, application usage, and every other possible thing. So telling the use to enable/install google services you compromise his privacy and security by 3rd party app which is clearly against the idea if Protomail.
I hope you can correct this and have no dependence on google at all.

The biggest <a href="https://wildwater.net/"> california waterparks </a> second Great Wolf Lodge will offer a similar complement of activities as its Garden Grove sister *water park.* Unique attractions at the indoor california waterparks will include Wolf Tail, and a launch chamber slide. In the warmer months, the resort will feature Raccoon Lagoon, an outdoor pool area of the Biggest waterpark in California. There will also be family yoga, mini-golf, gem mining, and a ropes course in *Fresno water park.* The all-suite resort will offer themed rooms that children will adore in the Biggest waterpark in California.

Island Water Park in California is located in Fresno and close to Visalia, Tulare, Hanford, and Madera. Clovis Water Park is less than an hour from Merced in the Fresno water Park in California.
This is critical because I am using a phone without google. I want to escape their constant monitoring of devices. We know communications are encrypted, but metadata to my device still paints a picture. Other apps have solutions.
This is an important feature because relying on Google Play just for notifications is ludicrous and seems to go against the mission of Protonmail. Nevertheless, I am currently using the protonmail and calendar apps on an Android phone without Google services and it works perfectly except that I don't get notifications. Maybe this is a blessing in disguise.
I really like Protonmail, but this issue is very important. Proton's demographic is much more likely than the average Android user to be avoiding Google. If you guys implemented this, I would instantly upgrade my account to paid.
The fact that this has been talked about for years with no visible progress is concerning. Lots of other open-source apps have GSF-independent notifications; it shouldn't be too hard to take a look at what they're doing if you need some ideas.
This is a critical feature.
If google weren't a problem, nobody would need/want protonmail. We could all use gmail. Can't really build a credible alternative that focuses on privacy, yet still depend on google. And why is the app not on f-droid???
Please pm, get totally rid of google, so that notifications are working on de-googled phones. That is still a killer feature, and it makes me considering switching to other mail services…
Protonmail is not properly working with de-googled phones (lineage os f.i.): no notifications.
Relying on google services/drive is a kind of joke about security…
Any updates on this? I am already planning to switch to Tutanota once my premium plan runs out and this feature is still not available.
Any update?? Has been 5 years since this was raised!
I left Gmail and would like to further on by leaving all Google products. But I still have these obligations to use Google play whenever I want to download your app, or google captcha which doesn't work with VPN (increasingly difficult) - and yet your answer is "Its like this" How do you reconcile your approach to full secured email app to full support to Google (cloud, play, captcha, analytics). And when are you actually following the core changes Google is making in tightening the control over data? It's happening now. Why do I see Facebook and Google as the two primary choices to register for this FAQ?!
Hello, is there any development regarding this topic? I see this as absolutely crucial feature! The solutions to avoid Google Cloud Messaging Service (FCM / GCM) are already there (see below).

It bothers me a lot that - although protonmail said they'd develop that years ago - NOTHING happened!
I have moved my business and personal emails to Protonmail because of their support for privacy. I'm beginning to think this was a mistake because of their dependence on google services (and seemingly their lack of interest in improving their existing products). Please implement proper android notifications without dependence on google services. If the company actually cares, here is a blurb on how to properly implement notifications on android https://grapheneos.org/faq#notifications
