4. I didn't receive any push notification for the following scenarios. What should i do?
1. Push notification to activate App
2. Push notification on missed call
For some android phones, there is a battery optimization feature that kills background apps completely if the Apps are not actively running.
The following are some steps to get back your notifications. (E.g. OPPO phone setting)
Go to settings -> advanced settings -> battery manager -> protected apps, then find the app you don't want to be killed, and "protect" it.
But that's not enough. Oppo's software will still kill the app unless you take two more steps.
Go to settings -> apps -> advanced -> ignore battery optimizations, then find the app and ignore it.
Go to settings -> notification panel & status bar -> notification center, then find the app, then activate "allow notifications" and also "priority display". You have to activate the priority part too to make sure you get notifications.
