I am getting a notification that Message+ is Syncing Messages - Temporary Background Processing. What does it mean and how do I get it to stop?

ajk13,

 

Seeing this type of message on your phone is definitely concerning and we can understand wanting to find out why this is happening. When did this first begin? Do you notice any patterns happening around when it appears on your screen? Has there been any new changes to your device?

It probably started about two/three weeks ago. I had not done any updates

or made any changes to my device. Yesterday I updated all my apps in hopes

that would fix it but it did not. I am on Android 8.1.0. There is also not

a pattern as to when it appears that I have noticed.

I just got a brand new Pixel 2 XL, and it has had the same issue from the time that I installed the app.

It's really annoying, because the notification takes up space, can't be dismissed, and I don't really want to disable notifications completely for this app whose entire *point* is to notify you you got a message.

Not seeing "apps running in background" there... And if I did, that sounds like it covers a lot of territory... What else would I be losing?

Any app that runs in the background would not show this so you will not know what's running in the background.

I am guessing you upgraded to 8.1 and I believe they changed it slightly from above.  I believe you can search for background and it should show you the setting options in the settings search

That sounds unappealing... But luckily I can't find it by searching settings.
