    • App icon badge

      Messaging app icon badge shows new messages when there are none. This occurs after new messages have been read and the app is closed. Opening and closing the app again will clear the badge. This also occurs randomly, for example, after first turning on the phone, and after re-reading messages. Again, opening and closing the app will clear the badge.

            • Uread count Outlook

              The badge count for Outlook doesn't work as expected. When new mail arrives, no badge is shown. After opening and closing Outlook (or removing notification from notification area) the badge is shown. You then have to open Outlook again to get rid of it.
              When you open Outlook, mark the new mail as read and close Outlook the badge still shows the total number of unread mail. You have to open and close again to remove it. The next time still all unread items are counted, so it's not really resetting the count when opening.

                • Messaging App Icon Badge

                  Messaging app icon badge shows new messages when there are none. This occurs after receiving and reading new messages. Opening and closing the app again will clear the badge. This also happens for example, when the phone is first turned on in the morning, and, after opening the app to re-read messages. Again, opening and closing the app will clear the badge. This started happening about 10/9/18.

                      • notification badges

                        The notification badges (count) are unreliable:
                        (1) Android Messages displays notifications even when there no new messages; for example, when I restart my phone, it shows several new notifications.
                        (2) Gmail will only show 1 notification no matter how many new emails I receive.
                        Note: OS Android 9 Pie
