Google Nexus 5 :: Get Email Pop-up Notifications At Top Of Screen When Using Device?
Dec 26, 2014
For the native gmail app in lollipop, is there some way to get a pop-up at the top of the screen when I'm using the device and a new gmail arrives. I get sound but no pop-up showing a preview of the message. I get it for text messages but not gmails.
I started having this issue yesterday--I have YMail, Hotmail and GMail accounts all in the stock e-mail app on my Nexus 5. I also use Lightflow for LED notifications and have had no problems. I noticed I was no longer receiving the taskbar icon notifications in the upper left for new e-mails, nor the Lightflow LED notifications. I still get Hangout/text notifications, not sure about missed calls.
1) Confirmed notifications set to On in the e-mail app for each of the e-mail accounts
2) Turned phone off and then back on
3) Cleared data and cleared cache in e-mail app -- didn't work
4) Uninstalled Lightflow app
5) Deleted all 3 accounts from the e-mail app, then added them back in; rebooted -- still no notifications
I don't use the stock GMail app for GMail since I prefer to just have one icon to use to keep track of all my e-mail accounts.
I just updated my Lenovo Tab 2 to 5.01, everything works great other than no pop up Notifications on screen. I know some people don't like them but I do. I've checked settings in Sounds and Notifications so not sure what the problem is.
Trying to figure out best way to stay on top of notifications. Not really thrilled with getting them in the notifications section for each email - I get too many of them.
My Galaxy S3 and past iphones all simply show you a notification with a number on the mail or messages app itself, telling me how many I have new or unread. I believe there is even a third party app for Gmail. But I assume it should simply be a setting to the existing apps or a active widget. But no luck.
Am I missing a setting, or is there really no actual unread message totals notification on the email and hangouts icons?
I've replaced Hangouts with Textra. Seems to be a good choice. Only thing that bugs me is the notifications give you no information other than you've received a text. You have to unlock the phone then open Textra and find the message. It's a bit ordinary.
I tried Slidelock and NiLS but wasn't too fussed on either, though maybe I didn't set them up properly. NiLS was particularly annoying, with the notifications interfering with the lock screen operation. Slidelock was just plain buggy.
I recently changed from an iPhone 6 plus to Nexus 6. One of the things I liked from the iPhone is when you ge a notification whilst you are browsing etc it will show a quick preview of it at the top of the phone then slide away. It appears the nexus just shows the icon in the top bar so you have to physically look who the message text etc is from by sliding the bar down. Not a major annoyance but is there any way you can change the type of notification you receive when the screen is unlocked?
when my phone is asleep and I get incoming notifications whether they be texts, emails, notifications, etc my screen does not turn on briefly to alert me, only the notification light blinks. Is this normal or is there a setting on my phone that is not enabled correctly? I kinda don't like this, I'm use to my phone briefly turning it's screen on when incoming alerts hit my device (coming from an iPhone.)
My nexus 5 is having screen issues and the screen basically doesn't function due to what I can only assume is a bad connection on the mainboard ( if I press in the right area with the back cover off the screen will flicker and work a tiny bit if I reboot the phone.) My issue is I still have tons of pictures that are very dear to me on the device and need to get them off of it.
When I connect it to my pc (windows 7) it connects and shows up as a nexus 5 device but nothing will appear in the folder. Im fairly certain I have the correct drivers installed as well. So how can I get it to connect properly with having basically no access to the screen?
I'm now getting repeated notifications on my Nexus 5 (Android 5.0.1) about how Google+ (version 18.104.22.168189390) has backed up my photos. The same photos. Over and over and over again. It didn't do this in previous versions. I don't know if this is a Nexus problem, a Lollipop problem, or a Google+ app problem. But, how I get it to stop?
Since the last windows update from this week windows cant detect my nexus 5. I tried everything. It keeps showing up like "Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed)" And i doesn't show up immediately when i plug in the phone. It takes like 10 seconds, then it shows that with a yellow triangle.
I'm running Cataclysm ROM (the Sept. 10 beta), Franco kernel, and I'm rooted and use Xposed. I receive this error when I try to add a card in Android Pay: "Android Pay cannot be used: Google is unable to verify that your device of the software running on it is Android compatible". I tried disabling root entirely and using RootCloak (Xposed) to hide root from Android Pay and Google Wallet, but I still can't use Pay. Wallet still works as it always has.
Just recently reset my phone, and am now noticing that the notifications are not popping up like they are supposed to when you are browsing the web and a text arrives. They just go to the notification bar and I do not get a choice to swipe them up or away.
I am using Nexus 5. i upgraded it to Lollipop but because of certain reasons i did not like it much so downgraded Lollipop to Kitkat 4.4.4. I have successfully done it. But the problem now i am facing is that "i dont get notifications for Messages, Facebook etc".
How to get gmail notifications for even those mails which are classified under social / promotions / forums. Right now I get email notifications on my nexus 5 only for those emails which get classified under primary and that also not instantly !!
my new Nexus 6, but I'm noticing an issue with my custom notification ringtones or sounds. I have a custom Ringtone for my Calls, that plays fine, but the Notifications for my Voicemail and Texts is not playing or Plays once the first time, then defaults back to the barely audible notification sound on the N6.
I wiped cache partition and did a factory reset before setting up the phone after the final OTA of 6.0 the day I received the phone. I'm going to try to wipe Cache Partition once again, because I saw in another Notification thread to try it.
I activated the setting that allows syncing of photos only via charger and wifi. Due to the fact that i charge my phone at night its quite annoying that i get a notification at two in the morning. How do i cancel this specific notification?
After having an iphone for 4 years i just moved to nexus 5 and boy was it a harsh learning curve. Aint easy.
For some reason when a whatsapp pop up comes up on the locked screen and i press view it doesn't open up the lock screen, i have to press view and then manually unlock the phone. This doesn't happen when i get an sms pop up. Why is this? i played with every setting possible.
Also, when i watch a youtube video and get a whatsapp or sms notification it stops the video. This didn't happen on iphone and was wondering if ther is a way to change it.
No notifications from gmail. just had a lg g3 no problems. soon as i sign in i get no gmail notifications, but i open the app and i have new mail about a dozen or so. sync is set up and on but nothing.
I want to receive pop up notifications while my phone is locked. Right now the notifications do arrive when the phone is locked but I have to press the side lock button to view them. I would like them to appear on the screen itself so that i do not have to press the button again and again.
I have Google Calendar running on both my iPhone and Nexus 5. I get notifications on my iPhone but not my Nexus 5. I've been through every setting I can find but nothing has worked. I don't have SMS notifications enabled.
Go Pro sms app. I keep on getting sound notifications even when in the specific conversation! Im uses to an iphone and there when you were inside the specific conversation there wasn't any sound, which makes total sense... Is there anyway to change that or at least another sms app that works the way??
I've noticed lately that Nexus 5 won't notify emails while being asleep on wifi. It seems like n5 drops wifi connection after being asleep for a while.. Because like for example i have to run Skype all the time and the phone is asleep and on wifi i wake it up Skype status icon appears Offline and after 5 seconds being awake the status icon turn Online. At first i though it was Skype's bug but it seems like it affects the whole OS.
I just picked this up last week on a whim, the day Verizon released it, so I am new to the phone.
My question is... Can I customize the notifications that show up in the ambient display?
In other words... I want all notifications at the top of the home screen, just like always... but I only want text messages to show up on the ambient display. Not every piece of junk mail I receive, or ebay notices, etc.
I am about to just turn it off, but am hoping I can get it to only show SMS (texts).
I just got nexus 6 and installed yahoo mail app. On my old Samsung s3 I always received notification from the app that I got mail. Recently updated to android 6.0 and installed the app. No notifications. Played with the settings...nothing. today I have notification from the app that I have mail from Netflix. But if I send a mail no notifications.
I'm running stock Lollipop on the Nexus 5 , but the new heads up notifications in Lollipop doesn't work correctly. They show up, displaying the correct information, but the buttons doesn't work. This is causing me to have to dismiss the notification, open the notification tray and act on the notification from there. Is it something an app I'm using that's causing the problem? I've tested with both Hangouts video calls and the alarm clock.
