    Only recently switched to a BlackBerry KEYone on Android 7.1.1 and am quite happy about it.

    Do have a question though, as it appears as if peek notifications for both WhatsApp and Signal aren't working properly. When I get a new message from either app, while I am not in either app, no peek notification will appear if the screen is on. Even though I think all my settings are correct. For example, BBM for Android does show peek notifications when the screen is on.

    Does anybody else have this problem too on Android 7.1.1? Is it perhaps because Android has updated it, if we compare it to Android 6? Do developers need to update their app? Or is it a problem with my KEYone? Or finally, is it a stupid mistake on my part?

    Hopefully someone can give me some insight...

    Well, I guess not that many people experience this problem. Googling it I saw that it was more the other way around, people wanting to disable peek notifications!

    Finally fixed my problem by using the Power Notification Controls from the System UI Tuner. Set the level for WhatsApp and Signal at four, to always show peek. I am still puzzled why they were disabled in the first place...
