    So far I'm enjoying my new Droid Z Force but I can't for the life of me get the new messages count to appear on the GMail icon. I get the audible notifications and the Moto notifications normally but the badger count of unread messages is missing entirely from the GMail icon. Has this been changed in Marshmallow or is there something I'm missing? Thanks for any input.

    You need to use Nova Launcher and Tesla unread apps. I'm sure other launchers support badges as well.

    Is a 3rd party app now the only solution? I've always had unread count show natively on every OS thru Lollipop.

    I believe Launcher3 is a slightly less useful Google Now Launcher which does not support badges unless you're rooted. A 3rd party launcher will give you the ability to have badges. Others may know more.

    You used to Samsung, perhaps? The count display hasn't ever been a native part of Android, but a function of the launcher on certain phones.
