Yea, I have seen this as well. Do me a favor, swipe left to try and delete the notification, I will bet you cannot, but curious. It is almost like it replaces the Silent Notification for Running in the background.
I haven’t found any consistency that points to an answer so I gave up trying to figure it out. But I’ll take another look. If we can’t figure this out within a few days, I’ll run it up the chain for a possible answer.
I will let some notifications load up and test it. Right now I don’t have any. When it was there in the screenshot, it was the first in the list of cam event notifications that came in overnight in DND (Wyze allowed to interrupt), I didn’t scroll down to look to see what was in the silent notifications or if the persistent background notification was there, which usually is the last one in the Wyze list.
It happens to me, but it’s rare. I don’t have the running in the background toggled on, but it still happens. As has been said, when it happens it becomes a locked notification = I cannot swipe it away. To clear it, I have to temporarily disable notifications then re-enable them.
I believe it also happened to me with a sensor notification once.
I believe it just signifies a pinned notification. I used to have it happen without the color difference, I think Google just changed the layout defaults so that now when a notification is made sticky/pinned it highlights it, so now more people will notice it… But we’ve been having random sticky notification problems on and off for months. I’ve brought it up in fix it first Friday a couple of times, it’s just more obvious now.
The running in the background notification is caused by a setting in the app that can be turned off. In Account → App settings, disable Running in the Background.
It has always been a persistent notification that can’t be swiped. But it usually shows up at the bottom of the current notifications list.
It operates under the “Notifications Manager” channel (rather than WyzeMessage channel for the push notifications) in the Android App Notifications settings for Wyze. It can be moved back and forth from the Silent grouping to the Default grouping by long pressing the notification until the settings popover.
It can also be disabled in the Android Notifications settings for Wyze by disabling the Notifications Manager channel even if the Running in the Background setting is still on in the app.
