No notifications when screen off

Hi everyone,

Okay, so I have a brand new Moto G8 Power, and push notifications when screen is off a at best sporadic, but typically just don't show. For example, push email (either from Gmail or a third party app) might just light up screen once with a sound, and then maybe light up screen with no sound, and then just never notify at all.

So, DND is OFF. I've checked all notification permissions and settings and they look like notifications are on. Peak Display is on. Android is updated to latest available (as of Feb 2022). I can only conclude that this is a bug - unfortunately it renders the phone absolutely useless.

If anyone else has had similar issues, or has any suggestions as to what the issue might be, any and all contributions would be MOST welcome.

Thank you in advance!

Seb.

Well since I can remember that most is just approcach settings on your moto app, just tap it and emble most notifications that way, you will be much happier, but you said you have it turned it off right?

Thanks for your reply. I have Tap to Wake turned on in Peek Display, if that's what you mean? It doesn't seem to make sense - gmail does alert now that I have installed Glimpse Notification from Play Store, BUT there is no sound!
You can always approach to wake it up too, same app, just head over to the app and set as "approach to wake up the phone" It is kind of a default settings of the cell. Sound like when you tap it, I know there is vibration feed, but there is no sound I know of ontop of my head...

Thanks, appreciate it. I'll experiment.
