Desktop notifications not working (ads notifications working fine though)

How are your Windows Focus Assist settings configured? Is it possible that this feature is enabled and is blocking notifications from appearing?

I think Windows 8 doesnt’t have the focus assist feature, the closest is “Quiet Hours” and it is disabled, of course.

Can you test the beahvior using this site? Note that you’ll need to click Authorize first, then Allow, then Show:

@Mattches I got a notification from your reply! (I had this page open so I wonder if it makes any difference)
And that page works, it sends me push notifs but Twitter keeps showing me this:

Chocoholic had mentioned couple things earlier this year.

So looks like a Github, also one person claimed a little workaround for now. Unsure if might work, but the claim was:

I found a way to make notification working.
1-Turn on your notification in window
2-Allow brave to have Twitter notification.
3- Open a second browser and turn on notification. refresh and go back to Brave browser you should start receiving them

More than anything, I’m kind of curious about that Github link. Issue been active for years now. Talking about

@sampson @clifton I know older Windows might play a part here, but it does surface every once in a while. Any idea on status of the issue? Seems weird to have an ongoing problem since 2018 that isn’t yet figured out at the end of 2022.

This is what you must do to have them work (for a session)

  1. Go to the privacy settings and turn on Enable Google Push Messaging Services → relaunch the browser.
  2. Now you can turn notifications on Twitter, and they will work until you reboot your machine, and/or brave.
  3. Make sure you have a shortcut to brave in the Start menu for Windows to register the app in the notifications list in the settings.
  4. From this point on, in order to receive notifications, you always have to visit a page, which uses Google Push Messaging e.g. Twitter, YouTube, Odysee etc. once in order to unclog the notifications to work. Every single time after boot up!

It’s a 4 years old problem, which they don’t care and not gonna do anything about. So, either use another browser for notifications, or turn the notif. off and manually check said sites for updates.
