Did the oreo software update yesterday and now if I have my always on display on my S7 Edge, I get no notifications for any 3rd party apps. For example, I can hear the selected message tone for my whatsapp, but there is no notifaction icon on the AOD, no LED flashing, and then when I unlock the phone there is no notifaction icon/info on the lock screen, when i unlock there is no number of messages on the WhatsApp icon on the desktop. I have all notification options switched on in the settings to show all of these as I want them to. I uninstalled WhatsApp and reinstalled it. I've switched the phone off and on 3 times. I really do not want to have to do a factory reset. I figure they have bodged something up in the software update. The same happens for LinkedIn updates as well so not just WhatsApp related.

Since the update, have you gone back into settings and verified that you have it set to show?

Yes I turned them all off and then back on again... twice. I did this is the main notifaction section under settings and then also in the individual apps and their notifaction settings. I spoke to Samsung UK over Twitter and they couldn't help other than telling me to contact each app and ask them.... I am also sometimes not getting notified of texts so maybe isn't just 3rd party apps. All seems hit and miss. All work fine when I am actually using the phone, it's just when it's locked and with always on display. Any one help please!!
