If your notifications are delayed, we troubleshoot them in this article.
In this article, you'll learn:
Why are the notifications delayed
The delay you may be experiencing is a common problem amongst Android devices and has been reported for WhatsApp, Facebook, Gmail, and many others.
The reason it occurs is simple: when you're in Low Power Mode, the device will limit the number of notifications sent to you to save energy.
What to do
If you're using apps that additionally help you preserve your battery's life (e.g., Battery Doctor), please check if they're not causing delays. Some manufacturers like Asus, Sony, or Samsung also offer modes that cut down on mobile data or Wi-Fi connections. So when you put your device in sleep mode, you're automatically being cut off from our servers and notifications.
Another thing that you can do is manually stop your apps from running in the background.
To set up intervals in which you're receiving your notifications you can install a Push Notifications Fixer App available at Google Play. There you will be able to alter how often you wish to have your notifications sent to you.
