Hi all!

For whatever reason, I have not been receiving push notifications the past few days with my new Redmi Note 3. While browsing through the forums, there have been some details listed in how to fix these issues, but some people are still having trouble. Particular apps I have issues with include Facebook, Messenger, Instagram, Snapchat, Gmail and so on. This guide aims to rectify the lack of notifications coming through in real time.

This guide focuses on MIUI 7 (my version is 7.1.8.0)

If you haven't tried yet, here's what you should be looking to do:

STEP 1: Disable power saving mode.

How? Simple!
Settings > Additional Settings > Battery and Performance > Manage apps battery usage > set 'Power Saving Modes' to OFF.

STEP 2: Disable 'destroy activity' function.

For those who have Dev Mode, go into Settings > Additional Settings > Developer Settings and scroll to the very bottom. Ensure "Don't Keep Activities" is disabled (greyed out).

STEP 3: Check Notification settings

Go into Settings > Notifcations and ensure "Show Notification Icons" is on, as well as "Show on Lock Screen."

STEP 4: Setup notifications for each App in settings.

This may be the most time consuming part. Open Settings > Installed Apps. Go to each app you're looking to get notifcations for, and press "Custom notification." Turn everything on.

STEP 5: Ensure app has notifications enabled.

Go into each app and find the settings. In there, a "notification" option should be visible *somewhere*. Make sure you enable notifications, sounds, icons etc.

STEP 6: Enable Autostart

In order to do this, you'll need to locate your "Secuirty" app, preinstalled with MIUI. Once opened, press "Permissions" then "Autostart" and enable the applications you're looking to receive notifications for. If using Facebook messenger, you should also go into Permissions > Permissions and then press "Permissions" at the top of the screen. Scroll down to "Display pop-up window" and enable both Facebook and Messenger to do so. Chat heads will now work.

STEP 7: Disable data saver and enable dual data on all apps.

To do this, go back to your security app and find "Data Usage." Click on "data saver" and make sure at the top of the screen, it says it is off. Go back one step and touch "Restrict Data Usage." In here, make sure all apps are accessible (ticked) on both the Mobile and WLAN sides.

STEP 8: Commit apps to memory.

Open up the apps you're trying to receive notifications for. Once you've opened them all, go back to your homescreen and tap the menu button to bring up the task menu (which tells you how much RAM is available). Here, you want to drag down each application you want to receive notifications for, and only those apps. A red "locked" icon will now appear in the corner of the logo. (Please note: you may have to do this each time you restart the phone).

STEP 9: Customise power saving settings.

This is the step that other guides don't list - and I'm not sure if this may be the difference that allows you to keep push notifications active.

Open settings > Additional settings > Battery & performance > Manage apps battery use and then click on "Choose Apps" at the top of the screen. This will take you to a list showing that each app is currently following the "suggested" battery usage modes. Click on the desired app, and you will see that "Suggested" is highlighted. Click on "custom" and some new options will appear. Now, click "Stay connected" (by default it will be set to "disconnect") and this will allow your app to stay connected to the network when not in use. Theoretically, this will allow it to always receive notifications and "push" them to your phone's interface.

By following this guide, you should now receive notifications on the lock screen, in the notifications bar at the top of the screen and as a red icon on each app logo in real time, whenever an activity has occured.

Happy days! Please leave feedback in the thread below, or rate / thumbs up the post if it has been helpful!

Hahahaahaaaaaa after buying a xiaomi phone you have to keep doing this or other things always and spend your life in the forum. Lots of problems, and you don't even realize that you're not getting the full experience of any app in xiaomi phones. With every update we expect our lives will become smoother using a smartphone but No, New update brings new problems.

Still having the problem despite trying everything (autostart, permissions, locking the app, notifications settings, etc.)

It's worse when i am on Wi-Fi

I have a Mi 4C running MIUI version 7.1.6.0 (Stable)

Is this not the latest ROM and that is why the fixes are not working for me?

I have been thinking a summary. I slipped the forum for several days and playing around on the phone before I realized these things. But for me to describe it would have been long because my English is limited. Good topic! Thank you!
I'm sorry for my bad english!
I'm Hungarian...

P.S. : I hate google translate!

No worries guys! I'm still having trouble over WiFi but I'm testing to see if that's the modem issue. Another thing you can trybis downloading Push Notification Fixer (check the version, root or no root) and set the delay to 1 minute, then restart your phone.
