# Usage for Laravel 5.1 and 5.2
If, for any reason, you do not want to upgrade your Laravel version, but still want to make use of the new notification system - this package is for you.
It brings support for all official and community driven notification channels to Laravel 5.1 and Laravel 5.2.
You can install the package via composer:
composer require laravel-notification-channels/backport
Next, you must load the service provider:
// config/app.php 'providers' => [ // ... Illuminate\Notifications\NotificationServiceProvider::class, ],
Please refer to the official Laravel Notification documentation (opens new window).
