    I did some searching, but wasn't able to find a solution. Sorry if this has been talked about, or if I posted this in the wrong area.

    I am no longer getting "Toast" notifications from Xbox games (Battleship, etc.). I also play Words With Friends, and the notifications still work with it. I used to get notifications from Xbox games, but it suddenly stopped working. I have checked that notifications are enabled through the Xbox app, and inside the Ringtones + Sounds.

    Is there anything I'm missing? Has anyone else had a similar problem and found a solution?

    Thanks!

    I honestly never get Xbox toast notifications, although they do show up in the "notifications" section of the Games hub if I open that.

    Strangely, I actually got one today on my Windows 8 PC from Alphajax, but that's the only time that's ever happened.

    It's so strange. I'm not sure if it's an issue with the game, or something in Windows Phone 8 itself. It's just odd that it was working, then suddenly stopped.

    I get it for alpha jac. Check settings in game and Xbox tile. If on and still not, then toggle off and on. See of that works.

    I haven't had any issues with notifications with alphajax

    Thanks for the suggestion. I've tried turning them off and on, and reinstalling the app as well, but still no dice. :(

    Know anything else that may be causing it?

    Well, I've somewhat determined the problem... It seems that if I go int he Xbox/Games Hub and manually delete the Notifications (after I've played my turn), I will then get "toast" notifications... I never had to do that before, this seems to be a new issue. For me, at least. Anyone else noticed this, or found a way to get it to work.

    Strangely, going into the games hub settings and turning off the bottom two options and then turning them back on worked for me.

    That actually didn't work for me. However, I did clear the notifications from the Xbox hub (long-press, then deleting them), and I've been getting toast notifications and the proper notifications to show in the hub now too.

    Maybe one was hanging it up on there, I'm not sure. I was having to go in the game and check to see if it was my turn, but now they're working properly.
