Google Messages bug is annoying some Pixel phone users

A new Google Messages bug has been spotted, though it seems to be affecting only some Pixel phone users. To be more specific, I’m talking about a bug with Google Messages notifications, which seem to be disappearing.

A missing notifications bug hit Google Messages, and it’s affecting Pixel users

Needless to say, this can be quite annoying. Missing notifications is far from ideal. I know it would create a considerable problem for me, and I believe many of you would be quite irritated by this.

So, what exactly is happening? Well, those notifications seem to disappear almost instantly for some users. There is not a workaround for this as of yet, it seems, let alone a fix.

Google Messages app is no stranger to bugs. Many of you will remember the one from earlier this year that prevented people from replying to messages from notifications. Then again the one that caused GIFs sent from iPhones to appear distorted.

This is arguably the worst Google Messages bug we’ve seen this year, at least

This one with disappearing notifications is the worst we’ve seen yet, or at least in a while. The good news is that you can still see the message you’ve recieved in-app. You have no way of knowing it arrived, though, as the notification appears almost instantly.

We’ve only seen reports of this bug affecting Pixel users, so at least it has not spread to other phones. The first instance of this bug was spotted 19 days ago, on Reddit.

One of the affected users, teslamash, said the following: “when a new text arrives in Messages, the notification slides down from the top of the screen, but disappears in about a second and doesn’t appear in the status bar or pull down menu, almost as if it’s been dismissed by being seen in the app itself”.

The Pixel 7, Pixel 6a, Pixel 7 Pro, and Pixel 8 Pro users all reported the bug, from what we’ve seen. So it doesn’t really matter what Pixel phone you’re using, it seems, it could end up affecting you.
