    Long press a blank area of home screen,
    Settings - icon badge,
    select Message app and then enable it.

    I moved this from the Android Apps forum to the General Help forum since the former is intended for developers to promote their apps.

    Which phone do you have? Are you using the stock launcher, or a 3rd party launcher like Nova?

    It looks like the Pie update might have gotten rid of the unread count badges on the One UI launcher: https://www.theandroidsoul.com/how-t...and-galaxy-s9/. Also see this article: https://www.technobezz.com/notificat...how-to-fix-it/.

    Let me check with other Ambassadors how have Samsung phones to confirm this.
