Delayed Gmail Notifications ( android )

Does anybody know how to rectify this or is it something i have to live with ?

Send an email to myself and it comes instantly however the notification comes 3 minutes later ?


Try turning ‘unrestricted data usage’ on for Gmail and turn off battery optimization.

It’s likely not allowing the app to check for emails as often to save battery.

I’m sure ive already tried that, where do you find " unrestricted data usage "

In ignore battery optimisation, gmail isnt listed. All the apps in there are set to not optimize

Ok i clicked on " data usage " which is the closest thing i can find, and "mobile data " " background data " and " roaming data " are all enabled

Seems to be worse in the evenings, any ideas ?

What phone is it?

Huawei Y7

There’s a 250+ page long of people on Samsung getting the same issue.

Yes but huawei are known to be especially bad

Try this

Huawei: Phone Manager App > Protected Apps > Add monzo to the list.

Monzo ? My monzo works fine, i’m on about Gmail mate

After googling " delayed gmail notifications " theres pages and pages of people with this issue :frowning:

Sometimes they come in and notify me immediately, sometimes not. Really odd

Sorry half asleep try

Huawei: Phone Manager App > Protected Apps > Add gmail to the list.

It’s common with other phones also but that might help

Thanks dude but there is no option for " protected apps "

Oh what lists are there in the phone manager ? Look for Gmail in all of them and allow

Clean up
Mobile data
Drop zone
Virus scan

And Gmail is not in any of them
