New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….

Original story (published on March 3, 2021) follows:

OnePlus has been in a slump when it comes to rolling out Android 11-based OxygenOS 11. I mean, it took the company 5 months between the rollout of stable OxygenOS 11 for OnePlus 8 and the recent update to OnePlus Nord.

So what was the company doing throughout that period? Well, presumably fixing bugs that were afflicting users who updated their OnePlus 8 units to this new version of Android.

OnePlus Nord

It is common practice for OEMs to fix and address many serious issues with the firmware in the testing phases, in the case of OnePlus, during the closed and open beta testing phase.

Sadly, some issues often stick around through to the stable release and users of the OnePlus Nord might have one of these issues on their hands.

According to reports from users of the OnePlus Nord running the stable release of Android 11-based OxygenOS 11, they’re facing an issue that results in delayed notifications.

After Oxygen os 11 update in my notification panel it’s only showing old WhatsApp notification if i received new messages then it’s not showing in notification i have to open all notification then I can see who message me.

I don’t get notifications from applications like Snapchat and Telegram. There is a delay in WhatsApp message notification but for Snapchat/Telegram the notification are completely blocked. It was working fine on OS10.


Seeing as OnePlus only recently rolled out this stable release, it is safe to assume that only a small percentage of OnePlus Nord users have managed to update their devices so far.

However, the rate at which these complaints are streaming (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8) in is alarming. This could mean that users who haven’t updated their devices are also complainants in the waiting.

We would, therefore, advise anyone that hasn’t updated their device to hang on for a few days as we continue to monitor this situation.

We shall continue to keep an eye on the issue of this ‘delayed notifications’ on the OnePlus Nord and update as and when we get more info or an official acknowledgment so stay tuned.

Update 1 (March 16)

IST 11:52 am: Yesterday, we saw OnePlus come out to release a hotfix update, OxygenOS, a re-release of the halted initial stable build that was ridden with bugs.

Unfortunately, this new update doesn’t seem to have fixed the notification issue for affected users are more and more reports continue to surface (1,2,3,4,5), even for the new build.

Update 2 (March 25)

IST 11:52 am Another day, another stable release of OxygenOS 11 for the OnePlus Nord and still, this issue still persists. Users of the OnePlus Nord on the new OxygenOS update (1,2,3,4,5) are still facing this issue.

Update 3 (March 26)

IST 12:18 pm A new workaround is now available for those facing the delayed notifications issue on their OnePlus Nord. Do note that it isn’t exactly a solution but it should solve the issue to some degree.
