Answer

Similarly to how GCM works, the FCM token can change due to token-rotation.

You can intercept the token rotation implementing the callback: FirebaseInstanceId.onTokenRefresh()

Note: the token rotation is a rare-event. Don't expect to see it often.
But still, if you care about the token you should implement onTokenRefresh() to be informed of changes.
