All notifications are NEW_NOTIFICATION

I’m using the Android app from the Play Store in German and every single notification I get has the title NEW_NOTIFICATION and the description NEW_NOTIFICATION.

It looks like notifications might miss proper localization or is this in any way intended?

You can try reporting this directly to the dev.

Hi,

same for me:

  • ( oneplus8pro android11 security update 2022-02-01 Oxygene build 11.0.11.11.IN11BA )
  • Nextcloud android app 3.19.1

To be honest, seing NEW_NOTIFICATION add more security as you need to log-in the app to check the notifications… so i guess it is good enough for me.

I found out that it’s a common issue that has been reported there before. Looks like some people were able to fix it by reinstalling the app.

I did the same, after uninstalling the app, reinstalling it and logging in, I got my first notification with actual content. Thanks for pointing me to the Github repository.

Uninstalling does not always fix the problem. The github issue is here: Push: show real text instead of generic "new notification" · Issue #1964 · nextcloud/android · GitHub

2FA with confirmation on the phone is broken with this bug and I can’t login without the backup codes, as it just says “NEW_NOTIFICATION” but does not have the action to confirm…
