The tags and are about exactly the same thing: the Google Cloud Messaging service for Android. Those tags should be merged and synonymized, has more posts so that should probably be the main tag.

The predecessor to GCM uses the tag , keeping the tags in the same style seems reasonable.

I'm conflicted. On the one hand, I don't like abbreviations like gcm. On the other, android-google-cloud-messaging can be a mouthful. Not sure which way I'd want to go with this. –  casperOne Aug 27 '12 at 12:37

I'm not comfortable with the abbreviation either, but Google's own documentation uses it, and the docs are the #2 result on Google itself for just "gcm". The documentation also insists that it's an Android-specific product, so the Android prefix makes a tremendous amount of sense here. –  Charles Aug 27 '12 at 19:38
    
I don't really care about the direction of the merge, might as well take the other one. –  Mad Scientist Aug 27 '12 at 20:04
