Code sample

Java

DocumentReference washingtonRef = db.collection("cities").document("DC");

// Atomically add a new region to the "regions" array field.
ApiFuture<WriteResult> arrayUnion = washingtonRef.update("regions",
    FieldValue.arrayUnion("greater_virginia"));
System.out.println("Update time : " + arrayUnion.get());

// Atomically remove a region from the "regions" array field.
ApiFuture<WriteResult> arrayRm = washingtonRef.update("regions",
    FieldValue.arrayRemove("east_coast"));
System.out.println("Update time : " + arrayRm.get());

Node.js

const admin = require('firebase-admin');
// ...
const washingtonRef = db.collection('cities').doc('DC');

// Atomically add a new region to the "regions" array field.
const unionRes = await washingtonRef.update({
  regions: admin.firestore.FieldValue.arrayUnion('greater_virginia')
});
// Atomically remove a region from the "regions" array field.
const removeRes = await washingtonRef.update({
  regions: admin.firestore.FieldValue.arrayRemove('east_coast')
});

// To add or remove multiple items, pass multiple arguments to arrayUnion/arrayRemove
const multipleUnionRes = await washingtonRef.update({
  regions: admin.firestore.FieldValue.arrayUnion('south_carolina', 'texas')
  // Alternatively, you can use spread operator in ES6 syntax
  // const newRegions = ['south_carolina', 'texas']
  // regions: admin.firestore.FieldValue.arrayUnion(...newRegions)
});

PHP

$cityRef = $db->collection('samples/php/cities')->document('DC');

// Atomically add a new region to the "regions" array field.
$cityRef->update([
    ['path' => 'regions', 'value' => FieldValue::arrayUnion(['greater_virginia'])]
]);

// Atomically remove a region from the "regions" array field.
$cityRef->update([
    ['path' => 'regions', 'value' => FieldValue::arrayRemove(['east_coast'])]
]);

Python

city_ref = db.collection(u'cities').document(u'DC')

# Atomically add a new region to the 'regions' array field.
city_ref.update({u'regions': firestore.ArrayUnion([u'greater_virginia'])})

# // Atomically remove a region from the 'regions' array field.
city_ref.update({u'regions': firestore.ArrayRemove([u'east_coast'])})
