Customers who use Amazon Simple Notification Service (Amazon SNS) for sending mobile push notifications can now host their applications in twelve additional AWS regions, including Africa (Cape Town), Asia Pacific (Hong Kong), Asia Pacific (Jakarta), Asia Pacific (Osaka), Canada (Central), Europe (London), Europe (Milan), Europe (Paris), Europe (Stockholm), Middle East (Bahrain), Middle East (UAE), and US East (Ohio). 

Amazon SNS can send mobile push notifications on your behalf to mobile devices and desktops using one of the following supported push notification services: Amazon Device Messaging (ADM), Apple Push Notification Service (APNs) for iOS and Mac OS X, Baidu Cloud Push (Baidu), Firebase Cloud Messaging (FCM) to Android devices, Microsoft Push Notification Service for Windows Phone (MPNS), and Windows Push Notification Services (WNS). Using Amazon SNS, customers can send a message directly to one endpoint, send platform-specific messages by destination type, or send a message to multiple endpoints at once by subscribing those to a topic and sending messages to the topic. 

With this expansion, Amazon SNS now supports the ability to send mobile push notifications from 24 regions. For the full list of regions from which you can send mobile push notifications, see Supported Regions and Countries in the Amazon SNS Developer Guide.
