Add additional Values when sending the Notification from your Serverside
Private Sub SendMessage(Topic As String, Title As String, Body As String)
    Dim Job As HttpJob
    Job.Initialize("fcm", Me)
    Dim m As Map = CreateMap("to": $"/topics/${Topic}"$)
    Dim data As Map = CreateMap("title": Title, "body": Body) ' Add more Data to this Map
    If Topic.StartsWith("ios_") Then
        Dim iosalert As Map =  CreateMap("title": Title, "body": Body, "sound": "default")
        m.Put("notification", iosalert)
        m.Put("priority", 10)
    End If
    m.Put("data", data)
    Dim jg As JSONGenerator
    Job.PostString("", jg.ToString)
    Job.GetRequest.SetHeader("Authorization", "key=" & API_KEY)
End Sub
The Data can be extracted in the sub fm_MessageArrived (Message As RemoteMessage)

for ex.
    If Message.GetData.ContainsKey("sms") Then
               dim sms as string = Message.GetData.Get("sms")
        End if
It is up to you then to decide what to do with the additional Infos you get.

NOTE that the Messagepayload is limited. You can not transfer unlimited Data.

It is helpful if you just understand how the FirebaseNotification System is working.
