Why doesn’t CVM notify me about new messages?

Usually when users aren’t getting notifications about new messages in Cloudveil Messenger it is one of two things. Either the app is set to be battery optimized or background data is turned off for the app. Please ensure that your CloudVeil Messenger app is updated to the latest version available in the Google Play store, then try these tips to fix this problem.

Battery optimization

While we like to conserve our batteries on our smartphones and portable devices some apps like Cloudveil Messenger need to run in the background to notify us about things like new messages. Here are some places to look for settings like this. These settings do vary by device and Android version.

  1. From the Home screen, navigate to Apps > Settings > Battery.
  2. Tap MORE or the Menu icon Menu icon (upper-right) then tap Optimize battery usage.
    Note If not available, navigate: Battery Usage > Menu icon Menu icon > Optimize battery usage.
  3. Tap the Dropdown menu Dropdown icon (at the top) then tap All apps.
  4. Find CloudVeil Messenger and turn off.
