Why am I not receiving Flock notifications on my Xiaomi phone?

Technical Explanation: Currently, Xiaomi devices block a few background services. Thus, Android notifications are always forwarded to the app’s background service first, and then displayed in the notification area of your phone. As this is a device-specific requirement, there is no way for Flock to display a notification without sending it to the background service.

Here’s how you can fix this issue:

To enable notifications in your Xiaomi phone, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Enable autostart for Flock

Navigate to Security -> Permissions -> Autostart, to see if autostart is enabled for Flock. If not, enable it and follow the steps below.

  2. Select Installed apps
  3. Scroll and select Flock
  4. Tap on Show notifications
  5. Toggle to enable floating notifications

  7. Press back to save your settings
