One of the outstanding features of Gotify is its WebUI component, 'gotify/server', which allows seamless sending of messages through a REST-API. Additionally, it provides options to manage users, clients, and applications effectively. The ability to subscribe and receive messages via a web socket connection adds another layer of convenience.

The simplicity and self-hosting capabilities of Gotify set it apart from other similar services. Both its API and user interface are designed to be user-friendly, ensuring easy usage even for beginners. The significant advantage being that you have complete control over your data.
