    On Marshmallow I would get a number associated with the number of notifications on the icon/badge. Now I don't know if I have notifications until I open the app. Anyone know of a fix for this? Thanks in advance.

    You need Nova Launcher and Tesla Unread. That wasn't a Marshmallow thing, it was a Samsung thing...

    Well my friend that's not happening at my Pixel XL, it's happens at my Samsung Galaxy S6. Pixel is a good phone but not so great at the notifications department regardless if is Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Gmail app or others paid email apps like Aqua Mail and K-@ Mail Pro- Email App.

    That's a touchwhiz modification.

    It's not part of Stock Android.

    Please read the entire thread. I gave a suggestion on how to mirror that Samsung feature on non-Samsung devices.

    I have Android Marshmallow on my Nexus 5 and I don't have the notification number on the app icon. TouchWiz has that built-in, but on stock Android you can only have it with Nova Launcher and the Tesla add-on.

    Sorry Sir, if your suggestion is Nova Launcher and Tesla read I'm going to install right now. I bought Nova Prime years ago.

    Nope, Google were never fans of Notifications badges, there is 2 way you can have notification badges on your Pixel phone.

    Either you install Nova launcher with TelsaUnread like what other suggest, or you can try to install Notifyer Unread Count which you can place the apps you wanted to have notification badges on your homescreen.

    Enjoy your Pixel phone then.

    It's interesting to see that so many of y'all believe that badges are Samsung exclusive... It's not!

    Plus you don't have to use Nova, other launchers include it as well...

    Hmm, but seeing these responses have given me another outlook on ppl who exclusively buy Samsung phones lol

    What other Android OEMs have notification badges then?

    Nova may not be the only alternative launcher that has the ability to add them but it's certainly the most popular.

    I know for a fact HTC has it...

    But you're right Nova does seem to be popular around here... I've used aviate and everything.me and both of them includes badges... I think almost every launcher probably does

    I've, had a 6p since day one. And, thankfully, have never had those horrid numbers on my screen!

    I'm using the 6p now until my Pixel XL comes in next momth. I don't have the number of notifications on the icon/badge with the 6p. I did have the number of notifications on the icon/badge on my Note 4, Note 5, and Note 7.
