Laravel makes it very easy to send a notification mail on completion of a perticular task or you can use according to your requirement . You just need to follow the step i have given and i'm again telling it's very easy but you just need to follow the steps carefully. So let's see how Laravel Notification works .

Steps we will go Through :

  • Setting Up Mail Configuration
  • Using Laravel Notification
  • Setting up Controller
  • Testing whether working or not

Step 1 : Setting up Mail Configuration :

The very first step is to set up your mail configuration in your " .env " file . For this example i will be using Mailtrap.io For sending Mails . Make sure your " .env " mail configuration is same your Mailtrap configuration as shown in the following .

Project_name\.env.php :










Step 1 : Using Laravel Notification :

Download Notification File :

First thing we need to create a notification class to use Laravel Notification . Use the following command to create a Laravel Notification file .

php artisan make:notification FileName

php artisan make:notification TestNotification

After using this command it will create your file ( TestNotification.php ) at " app\Notifications\TestNotification.php "

Project_name\app\Notifications\TestNotification.php :


namespace App\Notifications;

use Illuminate\Bus\Queueable;
use Illuminate\Contracts\Queue\ShouldQueue;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage;
use Illuminate\Notifications\Notification;

class TestNotification extends Notification
    use Queueable;

     * Create a new notification instance.
     * @return void
    public function __construct()

     * Get the notification's delivery channels.
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
    public function via($notifiable)
        return ['mail'];

     * Get the mail representation of the notification.
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return \Illuminate\Notifications\Messages\MailMessage
    public function toMail($notifiable)
        return (new MailMessage)
                    ->line('The introduction to the notification.')
                    ->action('Notification Action', url('/'))
                    ->line('Thank you for using our application!');

     * Get the array representation of the notification.
     * @param  mixed  $notifiable
     * @return array
    public function toArray($notifiable)
        return [

Step 3 : Setting up Controller :

Now open your controller where you want to call the Notification . For example , in a review management system , you want send a mail to the user whenever the admin reply to a user's review. On your controller use the following code to call the notification to send email

User::find(1)->notify(new TestNotification);

To use the above code you need to call your  notification class as shown below

use App\Notifications\TestNotification;

Example :

responseController.php :

public function response(Request $req,$id)
                'response' => 'required|min:2|max:500',
                'response.required' => ' Enter any response to comment ',
     $data=new Response;
  User::find($uid)->notify(new TestNotification);

  return redirect(url('/adminreviewdetail',$rid));

That's it  now whenever the function of your controller will be called it will send a mail to your mailtrap .

Output :

You can the message detail in your  " project_name\app\Notifications\FileName.php "

public function toMail($notifiable)
        return (new MailMessage)
                    ->line('Hello User')
                    ->line('The Business admin has replied to your review');

This is all about how can you use Laravel Notification to send Mail . Hope it Helped You .
