App Icon Badge is not appearing on messages application in Android 8.0 Oreo

Last Update date : Oct 09. 2020

Due to the change in concept for Android 8.0 Oreo, the notifications and badge are now corresponding with each other. 


In Nougat OS, the app icon is activated to notify a user when new alert was detected even if the App notifications has been disabled. Whereas in Oreo OS, the App Icon Badge is interlocked with the notification panel. In other words, if App notification is disabled, any new message alert detected will not be displayed.

To enable/disable App notification, follow these steps:

1 Tap Settings
Tap Settings
2 Tap Apps
Tap Apps
3 Select relevant application
Select relevant application
4 Tap Notifications
Tap Notifications
5 Enable App notification
App notification is disabled
App notification is enabled
