    Not getting any notifications at all until the phone is woken up is a bug though, either in the current version of pie itself, or some kind of interaction between certain phones and there configurations with pie.
    This is not unique to Pie. It is doing it in Nougat and Oreo. It was not doing it until an update of a system file was pushed through to my phone in late August. Prior to that, my phone was perfect. Samsung S8, Android 7.0, security patch Aug 1, 2017.

    Lots of threads about delayed notifications on other manufacturer devices as well.

    Once I applied device idle my phone is back to the way it was before the August push of Google or Samsung's flawed code. My battery performance is noticeably improved over what it was from the day I opened the box 8 months ago. Doze may benefit some, but certainly not my device and how I use it. I am a month in to using this fix and it has allowed me to defer my decision to abandon android until my device hits end of useful life.

    I get text messages instantly regardless of how long my phones been idle
    Then, if that article is correct as to how Doze works, then Doze must not be working as intended on your phone. I would just be happy about that though!....

    Turning off Doze was the fix for me and many others. Also like Al said, it has improved my battery performance too which seems counterintuitive, but I'm happy.

    Yeah, it's all over the board it seems... Texts have always continued to work for me - I use Textra fwiw.

    The Gmail app has been the issue for my phone.
    BlueMail has worked for me in real time since I downloaded it after discovering the issue.

    I haven't tried Inbox, it's being shut down soon anyway.

    I use Nova Prime as my launcher, but still had the issue when tested it on the Pixel launcher

    I've been searching about this notification delay issue and it has been going on for years! When will Google solve this issue for once? The Google Pixel 2 XL is my first Android and I was loving it. But this issue is just unacceptable! It is driving me crazy! We should try to reach out for YouTube channels like MKBHD, Unbox Therapy, This is Tech Today, Front Page Tech, Dave Lee, to see if any of them can help us reach Google on this issue! How about we mention all of them in our tweets to see if it works somehow?

    [edit]

    OK - replacement Pixel 2 arrived. the USB C port works, the notifications still do not....

    I tried doing the ADB Disable listed in this thread but I can't get it to work....when I open up the Power Shell and enter "adb devices" I just get an error message.

    Any help out there for this? Phone is connected, USB Debugging is on, Data Transfer is on....but nothing happens

    EDIT: just had to add "./" before all the commands listed in this thread/linked article


    Looking forward to testing this tomorrow - thanks again for the help

    For those that are disabling Doze via ADB, what do you do w/ the Battery Optimization and Adaptive Battery settings? Does disabling Doze affect these options in any way? Does this essentially remove the "optimization option" from all apps b/c the phone will never doze?

    I assume "adaptive battery" should still work in the background since that's supposed to cut down usage by apps that you don't use often.

    Just trying to figure out the optimum settings for both real time notifications and battery usage.

    thanks

    Good point, but I did not even think of this or look at it. I had already turned off as much of that as possible while trying to fix the delayed notifications before I learned how to turn off Doze and never truned anything back on. I don't worry about it now because, as I posted above, my battery life is great. The same at least as before turning off Doze.

    Hi guy's. I got an update from T-Mobile yesterday for my Samsung Galaxy S9+. I don't know if it's a Samsung or Google update since I am new to Android, but it did not fix this problem with notifications. See screenshot. Just thought I would give a heads up.

    I disabled Doze via ADB instructions in this thread & have been very happy so far.

    I am also using the adb command to disable doze and am glad that it works. However, I am not happy that I just spent $850.00 plus tax and cases on a phone in which the operating system obviously has a flaw. I am seriously considering selling it on ebay and getting an iPhone.

    I don't blame you one bit....2018 - real time email should not be something we actually have to worry about.

    Reminds of the 15 minute refresh / send/ receive of these days:

    I have also a Pixel 2 and it affected many apps for me. I could also test/verify it with my own app by sending notifications through google firebase cloud messaging.

    With "adb shell dumpsys deviceidle disable" I now receive all gmails and notifications from my own app instantly all the time.
    Same here. Last night was the last straw for me. Notifications were delayed for over an hour. After Googling this thread and doing this adb trick I now receive notifications from all apps instantly as they come through. I also haven't noticed any negligible difference in battery life either. Doze mode is a sham.

    Actually the way doze worked on marshmallow was perfect, it only went into doze mode after sitting still with the screen off for a certain amount of time, and didn't affect background apps ability to send out notifications at all.... just gave incredible battery life.

    Once they said nougat and up was going to get a more aggressive "doze on the go" feature which would restrict background apps even while the phone was in action I knew we were in trouble. And now 2 os versions later here we are :-( And Pie's ridiculously aggressive doze mode is also causing issues with lots of third party apps.

    Sometimes more isn't better.... it's just too much

    I have a note 9. I've tried everything to get notifications to come on time. This includes using ADB debug to turn off doze mode, however it still doesn't work for me. Wifi notifications seem ok (sometimes a bit funny but 90% fine), when on mobile data I get nothing through once the phone is locked. Even when I unlock it, often I have to open the app in question to see the notification. Anyone got any ideas why the adb command isn't doing the business for me?

    Edit: Text messages always arrive on time, this only applies to internet based notifications.

    When you did the adb command, did it acknowledge back that both modes of device idle were disabled?

    If not, then you didn’t do the adb connection steps correctly.

    If you did get the acknowledgement, you didn’t restart the device, correct?

    I got the acknowledgement to say they were both disabled. I actually think this is something to do with my mobile network. I've tried a SIM card from another network for a prolonged period and it works so much better. Notifications come on time. Not sure why the mobile network provider should affect it but in my case it seems to have a big bearing.

    BlueMail worked in real time for me.
    I haven't been using it for Gmail since turning off Doze, but that's what got me through the couple weeks before the ADB fix was posted here

    Thank You for the ADB fix !!!! I have a Samsung S7 with Oreo and I was not getting notifications until I woke the phone up. Only affecting 2 apps, NHL.TV and Yahoo Mail. Not using Gmail. Works perfect with this fix. Hoping for a permanent fix.

    Do we know for sure that all Android phones running Oreo/Pie (and perhaps Nougat) have this issue? Have any of you come across any recent Android phone that doesn't have the delayed notification issue? (keeping in mind that a specific set of conditions needs to be met for the problem to occur, namely the phone shouldn't be connected to a charger, it should be asleep for at least 3-5 minutes, etc).

    When I had Nougat on my S7 the problem was there. I was hoping it would be gone once I upgraded to Oreo.

    Correct!

    Enter this: "adb shell dumpsys deviceidle disable" without the quotes, after step 11.

    You will get a confirmation back that it has disable the two modes of Doze.

    Be sure when you are trying to open the command prompt in the adb folder on your computer that you shift-right click. That hung me up for a bit as I wasn't using shift.
    Thanks very much for this tips !

    The adb command allows to get instant notifications on my device, perfect !

    But when you reboot the device, at least in my case, the Doze mode comes back, so you loose the instant notifications.
    I need to connect again to my computer then run again the adb command.

    When I try to see the options with command "adb /?" it seems that there is nothing about persistent mode or something like this.
    Is there some workaround to get this option persistent ?

    Nope.

    It's very annoying that you can't change this setting directly in the Androids settings. It could at least be under some hidden advanced system setting.

    Don't reboot, or limit that for once every few weeks (then you have to throw the adb command at it again). Leave the device on but put it in airplane mode overnight if your old practice was to shut down.

    I was all set to bail to an iPhone, but disabling doze has really made my device perform how it did before google messed up the code. Noticeably better battery performance and no delayed notifications.
