getNotification().getBody() Fails

I am trying to extract the message from google firebase notification message.

here is my code:

@Override
public void onMessageReceived(RemoteMessage remoteMessage)
{

Log.d("FROM", "From: " + remoteMessage.getFrom() );
sendNotification(remoteMessage.getNotification().getBody());
}


the
remoteMessage.getFrom()
returns the correct value while
remoteMessage.getNotification().getBody()
crashes with the following log:

Answer

To expand on my comment posted under the question:

remoteMessage.getNotification().getBody() is only available if you are sending a notification-message. Either using the firebase console or the server-api with
payload = { "notification" : { "body" : "my body"} }

if you are sending a data-message like { "data" : { "mykey" : "myvalue"} } then on the client you should use the method: remoteMessage.getData()
