    Swipe down to open notifications, then swipe left on that android system battery notification....you will see a gear, press it and select the button to turn off all apps that use that notification.
    Thanks for that. It was getting annoying.

    So I found out the loss of the in app notifications are due to the glory of Oreo. It was first changed on Pixels. IPhones are looking rather good now.

    Can you guys on Oreo now attach gifs in the stock text messaging app without getting an error message when doing so?

    If you mean toasts I still have those. I have other problems with Oreo but toasts/heads-up aren't among the Oreo negatives.

    I don't know what toasts are. I talking about the color coded notifications for your tabs that let you know how many unread messages you have. They used to stay after you swiped an email out of the shade but now they disappear when you do that.

    Oh - are you using the default launcher? I use Nova and it has its own setting for that.

    Edit: nope you're right. Not cool.

    I'm using Google now. That's why I don't have badges. This is the first time I can remember being so disappointed with an OS update

    I'm having the same sentiment but for different reasons. I've reset my G6 twice already trying to get it in line, and I've had to dump a few apps I really didn't want to lose.

    Every day since the update by phone goes into a bootloop and I have to hard reset

    Well I finally discovered last night that Google Now was discontinued, I missed the article from May 2nd. This morning I switched to one of the other Launchers on my phone and it's not that bad. I'm even using Verizon app flash as my side screen. I have badges now but Gmail is still being Gmail. It'll take a few days to get used to things but I guess I really don't have a choice

    After the first couple of days on Oreo it seems my battery life is a little worse than before. By the time I got home last night after work it was down in the mid 60's and before it would be in the mid to upper 70's after a typical days use.

    Well, that sucks... I came to ask how everyone's battery life was after the update. Is everyone experiencing the same? Interested to know if I should hold off on updating (battery life is important to me) or if the update is worth it regardless?

    My battery is fine but I wouldn't consider myself a power user. Frankly I don't think the update was worth it and I wish I could go back

    Thanks. I don't really consider myself a power user, either, but the battery on the G6 is already underwhelming, for the most part. I don't want it to get any worse. Think I'll sit this update out, or at least delay it until I get a consensus on how it affects the phone... good or bad.

    It's possible a reset may help your battery life issue. I almost always do that after getting a major update. I haven't done it yet, but will watch my battery life over the next few days to see how it compares.

    I'm definitely not a power user. My typical day is about dozen text messages and maybe a check or two of the weather and that's about it. No email, no video, no games, and usually no calls. It's doing a little better today. It's 3pm US CDT and it's at 84%

    I'm happy I can get over 12 hours out of it

    Before Oreo - 5 hours SoT was easy. If I wanted I could squeeze almost 8 hours without using battery saver.

    Now, I'm at 60% with 30 minutes of SoT. I've factory reset twice, plus dumped two apps that were using battery that were really of central to my user experience, and it hasn't helped.

    I thought it was an app I had installed but now I'm really thinking it's Oreo.

    Ack! Well, sh!t. That really sucks. I'm leaning heavily on the 'Don't Update' side now. Thanks for sharing. Crossing my phalanges that only a small percentage of devices are experiencing worse battery life.

    Someone PLEASE give me some good news!

    How does that compare to what you were getting before the update?

    Sorry, that's what I was doing before. I really get between 12-14 hours which is really good for me.
