After the Update the notification light does not Work. In Android N the menu and back Button light went on if there was a new Message in WhatsApp How to fix this?

I didn't see that feature before now now. Interested in following this.

It was working on Nougat without Problems, why not on Oreo?

It is a very usefull feature. GlanceScreen is no option for me.

Hi user1509182308951,


Led notification is not a native feature of Nokia 8 it might have been a 3rd party app.


Thanks a lot for your feedback and have a nice day. 

I rolled back to Nougat and it works. Ive not installed any third party app. When I get a message on WhatsApp the navigation keys light up. In Oreo this doesnt Work.

Hi,


I was not aware of this (as the Nokia 8 doesn´t has the native Led notification support) it would be useful if you could report it via the feedback app from Oreo version.


Thanks a lot for your feedback.

I didn't have this working on Nougat. How this was activated? Would be almost a reason to roll back.

It's known as BLN, but Nokia 8 don't has this feature nor on N or O. And Nokia don't care what we want or think.

Well said wildfire, agree with you I bought Nokia flagship there are many phones available in the market better than Nokia but I BUYED Nokia because to give support for my side.... It's the NAKED truth this Nokia 8 is bad for camera focus where Nokia chied @JUHO SARVIKAS agreed in Twitter too....from the date of launched in India many people complained about it till today didn't solve the issue instead planning to launch upcoming models....for this new year I bought Samsung smartphone instead of Nokia because Nokia 8 is highlighted for camera in real not good, surprisingly Nokia till today didn't fix the issue where as flagship is prestigious but it neglected by saying UI developing...any have I loss patience and bought Samsung smartphone for my parents

Bad news: Oreo 8.1 beta still don't include BLN (navigation key backlight as notification LED). Nokia doesn't care what we are thinking.

They do only what their want. It's waste of time to tell them still today their give proper camera then how can you expect navigation lights as notification? According to counter point 2017 report in India 1st place xiamo 2nd Samsung 3rd levono 4th oppo 5th Vivo 6th others Nokia is good at old days not now. I BUYED this phone because of camera attraction but no use their didn't listen.... Before Nokia 8 I use redmi note 4 which is cheap with more more features... Where Nokia is more expensive then redmi note 4 but....? Every one love their own brands but think what their promised did fulfilled..? Ask yourself
