    I have the exact same issue with WhatsApp. But there are also no notifications for Telegram whatsoever. No notifications and no badge on the live tiles on the start screen for both of them. I wasn't even aware of that until today I started WhatsApp and realized that there are several messages from Tuesday and Wednesday. On of them was a buddy asking if I stopped using Telegram. So I fired up Telegram and there were several unread messages from Tuesday and Wednesday, too.

    The Mail App is giving notification but there is nothing to see on the live tile.

    A soft reset didn't help. I really don't want to do a hard reset on my Lumia 950.

    Well that sucks. I don't want to hard reset too and lose all my app data. It really is annoying that we have to hard reset our phones after every major update :/

    After several reboots I got rid of this notification that says "You need to fix your Microsoft Account for apps on your devices to be able to launch apps and continue experiences on this device" and after that I was able to get a badge on the mail app again. Hoped this fixed my issues with notifications. But now this badge on the mail app stays even after reading the message and restarting the phone. Nice. Not. Ah, and of course still no notifications at all in WhatsApp.

    Haha, that's why I started WhatsApp because I saw it being updated yesterday in the download and updates section of the Store. And for me this is not only a problem with WhatsApp alone. And yeah it always worked fine. Till now.

    Good, definitively a hard reset with backup time. Whatsapp needs manual backup, remeber

    Yeah I have that same problem with hike messenger as well. But my mail app is working fine. @marizio I have updated WhatsApp but still no notifications for both the apps. And after several reboots and soft resets, still no notifications.

    Guess only way is a HR with backup. Most of users didn't get that.
    Only thing I can say, new Whatsapp is slower and odder than ever :(

    Yep, I already came to that conclusion and am therefore in the process of backing up my photos, videos etc. I have already done a system backup (start screen pattern, installed apps, preferences for those apps that support backup). And yeah WhatsApp messages have to be safed within the app itself, I know. But I have no SD Card at hand and don't mind losing those messages tbh. Thanks for quick reply anyway bud.

    Whatsapp has been flaky for me and whole host of apps through out insider builds but that was to be expected on insider. Unfortunately that trend has continued through production builds too. Some builds everything was awesome but recently... just horrible to put it politely.

    So, I did the hard reset and tested WhatsApp with a buddy of mine. It just works again. Same goes for Telegram, btw. So whoever has problems with their notifications after installing the Anniversary Update, a hard reset definitely fixes this.

    Hopefully there are not a lot of users affected by this because this bug is nasty, making the phone unreliable, and hard resetting is the hardest way of fixing problems.

    I would say monitor for it a few days and if it's still working then I will try another hard reset as I haven't done so after AU auto installed when I was asleep.

    It's just sad how after every mayor update from Microsoft, things become buggier than before the update. Fanboys would say: I don't need notifications, what for? My wife also had this issue, I don't know how the app return to normality after a couple of days without notifications but it is "normal" again: I wonder how many days would last W10M running "well" before another bug appears. Let's bet.

    Posted from my iPhone Pro with MS Productivity Apps that run better than any W10M.

    and there are also users who's experience improves with every major update. We have to remember that the complaints we see in the forums are not a representation of reality since the complaints are always skewed towards higher numbers on the forums. We don't get much from people complimenting the same OS, do we?
