How can i show badge number on android app

Please provide the following:

  1. SDK Version: 33
  2. Platforms(Android/iOS/web/all): Android

I built a simple app with push notification feature, however i got some issues with this function.

  • On IOS: Badge number auto set on Icon Launcher on the first install (I don’t know where is the number)?
  • On Android: Badge number not shown

thanks very much for any help!

Android doesn’t support badge numbers. On Android 8+, the app icon will show a dot if there are any undismissed notifications for that app. Some flavors of Android may turn that into a number. There might be some Android API’s that can do more with badges, but they’re not exposed in Expo’s notification module.

thanks @llamaluvr for your help! “Android doesn’t support badge numbers” => Is this for all android apps or only apps that made with Expo SDK?
