Using the Facebook Messenger thing on a recently updated Android 8 (finally, Huawei pieces of rotten eggs) is a friggin' pain in the starhole. For the life of me I can't seem to fudging remove this damn useless notification popping up... (pic)

It's more intrusive than the app itself... D:

I guess I'll need to trash the app then.. Good fucking riddance!

    Hold on... I mean hang on... no... and not yourself.

    Tap that notification, hold it, deactivate the notification. Is it that difficult? :/ Or not possible (no effect?)?

    Edit: But yeah, kill it with fire... :3

    @Irithyll No avance, neither tapping it once; there it shows that the option "Permit drawing over other apps" is Enabled - But I want it like that.

    Holding it, shows me the settings to show Android notifications etc. None are enabled...

    So..; just now I toggled that first mentioned option off and on, that was enabled...

    It's gone. WTF - "Have you tried to turn it off and on again?" isn't a good fucking UX. AT ALL. >.<

    Aaaahr =')

    🤔 Just tapping shows the options ofc...

    You should only hold that, too, not only tap it 😂

    Have fun 😝 Hopefully it's gone forever :3

    @Irithyll It's back... I guess the toggle didn't fix it after all xD

    Well just disable the notification.

    Hold the notification, toggle it once, go back.

    OR / AND

    Have a look at the settings directly - Settings > Apps and Notifications > ...

    It isn't messenger, it's Android 8. I get them for a variety of things. They're super annoying. I'm yet to figure out the way to prevent them.

    @qwerty77asdf Exactly! No way to turn off those damn notifs.
    @Bl4ck0u7 Presumably that's something I might have to wait for, another year...

    Okay... I just disabled the notification for "overlay" by holding that notification, touched the toggle (to grey) and pressed the "Done" button.

    It's working on an Android 8.1 system... just a normal feature 🤔

    I tested it with Myki - it should be the same notification option (in your Settings... duh 😂) for Messenger - the "default" notification.

    @Irithyll Mine's on 8.0 and that, sadly, doesn't work. It just reverts to being untouched.

    There is that option, right?
    You toggle the button and it's toggling back? OR does it stay off BUT the notification still is visible?

    In both cases - that's not default Android behaviour xD That should be a bug... report that bug... 😝

    Edit: https://stackoverflow.com/questions...

    Well... that's interesting, too 🤔
