Android notification icon badge

Maybe iv missed a setting, but i have installed “talk” on several android phones, but i can’t figure how to get the icon to show a notification badge?

It’s very important as my elderly dad just does not hear notifications and only really sees the badges, and other family members have commented as well. I’m desperately trying to get them all to change what we all use to communicate, but this is a large hurdle.

I have seen i mentioned on ios, so it does exist, but how/where on android?

I’m not using Talk (yet), but I thought badges were OS handled:


When I check the Notifications settings for Talk on my phone (it’s installed but just not using it yet), I can go to App InfoNotificationsAllow Notifications Dot as well as Show Notification Dot under each type (Calls, Messages).

Are those not showing up?
