For some Android users, the notification delays can range between a couple of minutes while there are some others who do not receive the updates until they unlock their device. It can be quite inconvenient, for sure.
The Android apps rely on Cloud Messaging service of Google to receive and send Push Notifications. The fact is, your device needs to connect to Google’s servers and get new updates. This happens at an interval and this interval is the reason for the delay.
There are a few effective ways using which you can override Android’s Notification delay issue.
1. Disable Battery Optimization for the affected app
Several manufacturers like Sony, Asus and Samsung offer battery saver modes to extract maximum performance from the battery in their devices. Sony devices have a stamina mode that cuts down on many aspects to preserve battery life.
This is also true about brands that offer a customized version of Android such as MIUI. Some users also use third-party apps like Battery Doctor to make their Android device battery run longer.
These apps help you extract the most from your smartphone battery. But, that optimization comes at a cost. They cut either the mobile data connection or your Wi-Fi connection as you put the device in sleep mode.
This means apps running in the background are cut-off from remote servers and notifications do not appear. So, its time you need to do a rethink and use an alternative battery saver app that does not impact data connection.
2. Stop Killing Background Apps Manually
Like a lot of Android users, you may have the habit of killing apps running in the background every now and then to free up the RAM on your device. Not only does it kill the background processes but also adversely affects the battery.
3.Fix the Android Heartbeat Interval
Several Android apps use Google’s Cloud Messaging Service for Push Notifications. In order to ensure that your phone is always connected with the messaging servers, a heartbeat exchange is used. In simple terms, Android’s Heartbeat Interval is the duration it takes between the devices connecting to Messaging Servers of Google for fetching push notifications.
