    On my messages, mail and phone apps It will show the little red unread badge count symbol. I'm not getting these badge count icons on apps like PayPal, eBay, Google Play Store, Gmail ETC when I use to get them on past phones.

    Is there some special area to turn these on or off?

    Yea, I'm talking on the stock Samsung launcher. Some apps have them, most apps don't.

    Its funny because my mother keeps saying "your not playing words with friends its your turn". Well dangit its because i dont have a badge notification telling me i have a game waiting!!!! LOL. So stupid.. but the badges do really help out especially if you dismissed a notification to fast.

    Funny my WWF app is always showing way more notification than I have (S8) and I have no idea why that is happening.

    tamikamadex, it's not that no one was helpful, it's that badging depends on the launcher you're using, and there are many of them, each doing it in a different way. I suppose someone could list 50 common launchers that do badging and the way to set them up, but if the questioner each listed the launcher they were using, someone could have told each of them a) whether that launcher did badging and, if so b) how to set it up. As Manafa said, you can use Tesla Unread for Nova Launcher, which it was made for, and TouchWiz, the default Samsung launcher (I just had to check that one out - I didn't know it would work on TW - thanks, Manafa).

    Tell us which launcher you're using (or, if you don't know because you're using the one that came with the phone, the make and model of the phone), and perhaps someone familiar with that launcher can tell you whether it badges and if so, how to do it (or you could just run Nova).

    Bur, since this is the S8/S8+ forum, and most people would probably be using TouchWiz (but you;d be surprised by how many people post in a totally wrong forum), so install TeslaUnread for Nova Launcher, choose which apps should get badged (little circles with the number of messages, phone calls, emails, etc. are waiting) and you'll have what you want.

    I am not aware that Tesla Unread works on the Samsung Touchwiz launcher. That is not the case with me and I have it installed. It works well with Nova but not Touchwiz. Also Touchwiz does have badges but most for the Samsung Apps only, not 3rd party apps. There is no way for touchiwiz to display badges for all app without having Samsung update that within their software

    Yeah, tried it and Tesla does not work with Samsung Experience Launcher, only Nova.

    That is what I thought unless we are missing a setting or something that we are not aware of
