Can't find any answers anywhere so asking HUKD.

Set up a Fire tablet with Playstore and apps earlier.

The few apps I've installed have notifications turned on and apps (e.g. HUKD, Twitter) are not even showing under recent notifications.

Apps like Gmail are showing under recent , but again not getting any notifications for new emails.

So this is also a heads up for anyone thinking about purchasing a Fire tablet/installing Play Store on it with regards to app notifications to how limited functionality of it is.

    DND is off.

    I'm just going to send it back and get a iPad or Samsung like I should have done in the first place as I need notifications.

    I was looking into buying a fire tablet for my mums Christmas and had read somewhere last night that it is designed and operates on FIRE OS and not all google play features are supported or compatible and advised to go through Amazon store for apps to fully work…this could maybe be the reason for no notifications.

    Yeah I thought that could happen, but there is nothing on it via online/YouTube searches.

    Surprising unless people don't consider notifications as a deal breaker like I do.
