    Hello.

    I am setting up Join both on my phone and Windows 10 laptop like I have done many times before.
    Every function works, sending clipboard contents, notes, screen capture, etc, just no notifications mirroring.
    Checked and rechecked every setting. Deleted both devices and then signed up again from reinstalled apps.
    There is really nothing else I can think of to solve this issue.

    Is there any way to verify that the Join service is up or if anyone else has any ideas, please let me know.

    Thank you.

    Did you enable the apps to mirror as shown here?

    Yes, I have set up Join multiple times before and it worked. Now it doesn't.
    Here are the logs I get from the Android app:

    version 2.0.bf2

    OS Build OPM7.181105.004
    OS Code 27
    Device ONEPLUS A5010
    Manufacturer OnePlus
    Product OnePlus5T

    Does it work if you send a note to self from your phone to your PC?

    I just tried and nope. And not even logs of the event.

    EDIT: When I activate Encryption on Android, the mirror notification shows up on the laptop, but gibberish since the Win10 app does not support encryption.

    It seems that somehow notifications are blocked on your PC itself? Do you usually get chrome notifications in the windows notification center?

    Tried already disabling the Firewall and the rest of security measures I have always on.
    Thing is. I get notifications on my laptop if the Android app is encrypted, but I get only scrambled notifications.
    Only when I disable encryption, I stop getting them.
    And I don't use Chrome so I have not tested the plugin.

    Sorry to hear that? Do you maybe have any existing Join notifications in windows? Or is the notification center empty?

    The Windows app is empty including the notification center.
    I really don't know what else to try.

    Sorry to hear that. :( Does it help if you uninstall and re-install the windows 10 app?

    Question.
    I am not a developer or anything remotely similar to that.
    What would happen if I flash this zip using any AOSP based ROM: https://github.com/stefansundin/android-disable-direct-share

    Basically it disables the "Direct Share" portion of the Share menu, but perhaps it disables the actual feature.
    Now, would that be related to my issue of not getting notifications on my laptop?
    Since I ignore about what kind of ways Join uses to send notifications from Android to the Windows 10 app, I am sure you would have an answer.

    Thank you joao!

    Hmm, I wouldn't think that is related. Direct Share shouldn't influence notifications at all I don't think. But then again, I don't really know what that module does...

    Turns out that it is Windows 10 the one that is causing the issues, but so far, after reinstalling it multiple times (including my own installers for applications and scripts with tweaks), I still cannot figure out what exactly makes Join to show every notification for pushes, notes, files, etc just no for notifications from apps on Android.
    I will update when I finally find the cause.
