Of late I could not help noticing that there are many users who are having problems getting real time notificatons with their Xiaomi phones and felt compelled to share what I did to allow my Redmi1 to have notifications successfully with my messaging apps namely QQ (China/International) and Whatsapp.

Before you do anything with the settings of the device, please ensure that you have the latest version of your messaging apps by update or download and install the app's latest version.

For the newly installed please do not do anything with its settings and for those who had installed previously, please go inside the app's settings and ensure that it's settings are back to "Default". I know that you may like to have your preferred but there are other issues that may arise and cause your phone's security settings to be in conflict with your selection(s) here.

For QQ China
1. After login please "swipe" your screen to the "right" to bring up the Menu
2. Tap the "Wheel" icon (设置) at the bottom left corner of the Menu

3. Make sure you have all these turned on

4. Then exit to proceed to customize the phone's "Security" settings for QQ China.

5. Proceed to Settings > select General Settings > select Apps > select QQ China in the list.

6. Inside QQ China Apps Info, please turn on "Enable Floating Windows"

7. Tap "OK" to go back to QQ App Info

8. Back inside QQ App info, please scroll down and tap "Manage Permissions"

9. Now, it will be quite easy if you could just "turn on" - "Trust This App" but for those who are paranoid about security just set as per picture below:

10. After this please proceed with Annex below.

   
For QQ International
1. After login please "tap" tap the "Compass" icon on the top right corner of your Contacts display

2. Tap the "Wheel" icon at the bottom right corner of the Control Panel Menu

3. In "Settings" please tap "Notifications"

4. Please ensure that the "Alert" settings are as picture below:

5. Exit to proceed to customize the phone's "Security" settings for QQ International.

6. Please follow steps 5 to steps 10 as per QQ China.


For Whatsapp
1. After opening the app, please tap the "Settings" icon located at the top right corner (3 vertically lined squares)

2. In "Settings" please tap on "Notifications"

3. Inside "Notifications Menu", please ensure that "Conversation tones" and "Contact ringtone" are "Ticked".
"Vibrate" is in "Default"
Then tap "Popup notification"

4. Inside "Popup notification settings" please select "Always show popup"

5. Exit to proceed to customize the phone's "Security" settings for Whatsapp.

6. Proceed to Settings > select General Settings > select Apps > select Whatsapp in the list.

7.  Inside Whatsapp Apps Info, please turn on "Enable Floating Windows"

8. Tap "OK" to go back to Whatsapp App Info

9. Back inside Whatsapp App info, please scroll down and tap "Manage Permissions"
  

10.  Now, it will be quite easy if you could just "turn on" - "Trust This App" but for those who are paranoid about security just set as per picture below:
Whatspp permission1.jpg    Whatsapp permission2.jpg

Annex:
After you have gone through the above steps to configure your apps and the permissions for your apps, you will need to ensure that you observe and perform the following:

a. Please ensure that the above apps are inside your phone's storage and are NOT "moved" and "stored" in your SD card.
b. You must also ensure that your "Default Input" app (Stock/3rd party) are inside your phone's storage.
c. Please ensure that the above apps including "Default Input" are NOT "hibernated" or "froze" by mod apps.
d. After everything is done, you MUST reboot your device for the settings to take effect.
e. Congratulations! You should now have the real time alerts as per picture below:
Popup Notification.jpg    Popup Notification1.jpg

Important Notes:
  • Please note that for these push notifications to work, it is very important that your device must have access to "Mobile Networks" or WiFi
  • It is very important that your apps must be updated to the latest version to ensure of their optimum performance since the latest version would have bugs of the previous resolved and in the process affects the alert functions as well.
  • Please ensure that you reboot your device when you make any changes to the "permissions" for the relevant apps or the changes will not take effect.
  • Please ensure that you are using the official MIUI ROM (firmware) and that your device (Redmi 1) is original.

Thank you for your attention here and should you still encounter any problems please feel free to provide your invaluable feedback. I must stress the steps advocated here is for the original Redmi 1 using the Official MIUI ROM and as such anything other than this device, please post a thread for the relevant device category to be attended.
