Android users are receiving blank notifications?

Did some of your Android users receive blank notifications?

In most of the cases, it happens because the Silent Push Notifications that MoEngage sends to track device uninstalls are not suitably handled on the App side for cases when Notification Display control lies with the App and not MoEngage.

To ensure if that's the case, test silent push notification as mentioned here. 

When testing if the silent push notification is visible as a blank push notification,  disable the Uninstall Tracking from the MoEngage dashboard. To disable, navigate to MoEngage Dashboard > Settings > App >  Analytics and click on the relevant uninstall settings.


The second step is to handle Silent Push Notification as mentioned here. Once handled and all your users are on (or above) the app version on which the change has been implemented, you can enable the Uninstall tracking again by navigating to MoEngage Dashboard > Settings > App >  Analytics.

Another reason why this happens is when your app is receiving notifications from multiple servers/providers or in-house notification services. Your users will receive Blank Notifications if the push received from different servers is not handled correctly. Make sure that the app does not try to show a notification if the notification is from MoEngage.
