according to the migration guide, all client (subscriber) tokens and registrations will continue to work:

So the currently rolled out App does not need an immediate update, and as we currently target play-services v15.0.1, we won't need to migrate to be able to roll
out a new release until we need to switch to v16. I have just finished updating my build environment and will look into this nevertheless.

On the server (publisher) side, the API also hasn't changed and will continue to be supported. All that is needed is changing the end point.

I've just done and tested that on my server, and pushed the change:

Please update your server accordingly.
