    My edge lighting only seems to work for text message notifications. Within the edge settings, I have it set to "On", and to show the edge lighting "Always"

    Under "Manage Notifications" within the Edge settings, I have the following items checked:
    • Hangouts
    • Messages
    • Calendar
    • Email
    • Gmail
    Under "Advanced Settings" within the Edge settings, I have it set to a custom color, which is bright blue. I have it set to max width, and lowest transparency.

    Works great with texts, but not with anything else listed above. All apps are stock, and I see nothing in those apps individually that would seem to prevent the edge lighting from working. They all have notifications enabled with sound, vibration and LED.

    Think this is a bug, or am I missing something else somewhere?

    I haven't tried this feature yet since it was introduced because I use wallet cases and wear the gear S3 watch that alerts me. Maybe I'll try it just to see what the visual is like.;)

    Same here. Turned everything on in notification, settings, advanced settings... everything I can find on it and... nothing. I can hit preview and see it, but that's the extent of experience with it. It never worked for me. :(

    Since my original post, I did notice last night that it does also work with my calendar reminders. So that and texts, but still can't get it to work with email and gmail and hangouts. Bummer.
