    Anyone else having a problem with G+ push notifications not coming through when the app is not running (but is still open in the background)?

    For example, if I am using another program with G+ open in the background, I will not get any notifications until I reopen G+ and then they all come in at once. Same when my phone is off...no notifications until I turn it on AND open G+.

    I actually just got one on my phone, almost immediately. But it does seem to be hit or miss if G+ is not open.

    I've noticed this as well. I think I've gotten maybe one or two of my notifications without having G+ open. The rest only come through once I open the app.

    They seem to be working much better now...I am getting them on my phone right away pretty consistently.

    i usually get the gmail message before i get the notification from G+.
    theres a feedback button on the website in the bottom right, im sure they will fix it.

    I have never received a push notification, i have always opened the app to see my notifications, would be good if this worked properly, it would give it something over facebook in the mobile department.
    Edit: for those of you that push notifications are working properly did you put in your mobile number in g+ settings and check for it to notify you or did you leave it the way it was.

    I added my GV number to settings on the G+ site/online. I didn't think it would work, but it did. Then I checked what notifications I wanted, checked 'via push', and I get them.
    Edit: I guess it is coming via push and GV has nothing to do w/it now that I think about it...sms is not checked.

    hmm so do i still have to check the boxes for phone for every type of notification i would like to recieve.
    Also has anyone tried out push on the updated app. I have not yet but may try turning it back on in my accounts and sync.

    i'm not getting notifications at all now. I only see notifications when I happen to sign in from my desktop. Nothing on my phone or tablet.

    I really thought the big G would have sorted this by now. The only notifications I ever get are from Huddles - which I hardly ever use anyway.
