Just bought a Nexus 6P and noticed that Gmail notifications are not arriving2 Recommended Answers
I came across a weird issue recently with my 6P: Gmail isn't syncing quickly or notifying me of new emails.
I'll send a test email to myself and the 6P never notifies me of the email, even after many hours. Contrarily, my Nexus 9 and old OnePlus One sync notify me just fine. I set up the Gmail settings the same say I have it on both of those devices and have made sure that sync is in fact on. It won't sync without a manual refresh.
Here's what I've tried:
- Removed my Google account and readded
- Removed my Gmail account and readded
- Gone through Gmail settings to make sure that notifications are on, sync is active, managed labels
- Gone through the Google account to make sure that Gmail sync is on
- Uninstalled updates to Gmail from the Play Store
- Reinstalled updates to Gmail from the Play Store
- Force Stopped Gmail
- Cleared data from Gmail
- Cleared cache from Gmail
- Removed it from optimized apps
I'm using a 64 GB Frost White Nexus 6P. I do not have my SIM card yet (only Wi-Fi). Perhaps that's the issue? It also seems to possibly be a Marshmallow issue with Gmail.
Some others with the 6P seeem to have a similar problem:
- If your phone is on, turn it off.
- Press & hold the Volume Down and then press & hold the Power button at the same time until the phone turns on. You'll see the word "Start" with an arrow drawn around it.
- Press the Volume Down button twice to highlight Recovery mode.
- Press the Power button to start Recovery mode. You'll see an image of an Android robot with a red exclamation mark.
- While holding the Power button, TAP the Volume Up once and then release Power button, then a menu will appear.
- Use the volume buttons to scroll to "wipe cache partition" and press the Power button to select it.
Note: This process can take up to 10+ minutes to complete.
I also wanted to say that it was easy to read your post, nice write up! :)
