RE: GMail Shortcut Icon Issue

(I do not think my first attempt attempt at posting this thread was successful for some reason; unless it needs to be moderated?>

Hi folks,


I joined here recently as I bought a Nokia-3 last week.


Today I opened/signed-into (on my phone) my GMail account, for the first time. None of the emails in this account are unread. However, the icon for the app. has a (red ) number 4 fixed to the upper-right-hand-corner (ie. indicating that there are 4 unread emails in my inbox waiting to be opened)!?


Similiar numbers appeared on my What's App and Hotmail shortcut icon when I installed these two apps this afternoon; however one I read the new emails, the numbers disappeared. But, as I say, this is not the case for GMail.


Many thank in advance for any assistance offered.

If the update hasn't come yet don't worry! The updates are depending on many things such as Google, region, kernel version, mobile operator etc. I advise you to be a bit more patient.

Guess you have to wait as there's nothing left to do right now... :)

Emaz Anwar,

I will have some more questions relating to other aspects in the mean time.


You are welcome to ask :)
