[Tips] Tips to Fix Push Notification Issue on MIUI

Lots and lots of people have complained about Xiaomi phones not displaying push notifications. This is in fact more of a Chinese thing. Most Chinese manufactured smartphones, suppress push notifications in order to enhance battery life. This may be a little bit inconveniencing if you want to know instantly when a message comes into your phone.

Well, here are five little steps to help you restore normalcy to push notifications on your Xiaomi device running MIUI.

Step 1: Go to settings – manage apps’ battery usage – choose apps. From there, pick all the apps you want to receive push notifications and select “No restrictions.”

Step 2: Go to settings – permissions – autostart. From there, pick the apps you want to receive notifications, and toggle the switch to turn it on.

Step 3: Go to settings – app notifications – pick the apps you want to receive notifications, then turn the toggle for “Priority” on.

Step 4: Lock the app in the “recent apps”/ “app overview” plane. Do so by first opening the apps, then press the “recent apps/overview button” (that’s the square button on stock Android or the button with three horizontal lines on the Mi Mix or swipe up and hold if you’re on MIUI 10). From there, find the app you want to receive notifications, pull down on it to “lock it”, so it never gets cleared.

Step 5: This last step requires Developer Options privileges. To enable that, go to settings (man… I’m getting tired of typing “go to settings” …) – About phone. Tap on MIUI version tab like eight times. You should then get a little message saying “you are now a developer.” Then head back out to settings, go to developer option, scroll to nearly the bottom, find “memory optimization,” and turn it off.

Thank you.
