No longer receiving Gmail notifications

Problem – Power Saving Mode ON

I’m no longer receiving Gmail notifications on my S9.  At first, I had no issues receiving notifications, but after activating Power Saving Mode (medium) I’m no longer receiving Gmail notifications.

I have changed GMail notification settings and within the S9 settings to ignore Power Saving options when it comes to Gmail.  But the same result.  The only time I can get consistent GMail notifications is if I turn off all Power Saving options.  It’s not possible for me to Power Saving OFF all the time because it’s affected my battery life significantly.


  • Go to Settings
  • Search for “special access”
  • optimize battery usage
  • Select All from Dropdown (Default is Apps not optimized)
  • turn off the Gmail app

I started getting notifications again even while medium Power Saving Mode is ON. Hope this helps.
