How To Fix Delayed notifications On S22 Ultra

While there could be various reasons for delayed notifications on the S22 Ultra, some of the possible culprits could include Do Not Disturb (DND) mode, Battery Saver Mode, Restricted Battery Usage, and Background Usage Limits.

Disable DND Mode

  1. To disable DND mode, swipe down from the top of the screen to access the Quick Settings menu and look for the Do Not Disturb icon.
  2. If the icon is blue or any colour other than grey, DND mode is enabled.
  3. Tap it to turn it off.

Disable Power Saving mode

  1. To disable Power Saving Mode, open the Settings app.
  2. Navigate to Battery and device care.
  3. Scroll down to the Battery setting and tap on it.
  4. Toggle the power saving mode off.

Enable Unrestricted Battery Usage for a specific app

If your S22 Ultra is missing notifications from a specific app, then it’s possible that the OS is not letting the app run in the background. Therefore, to enable unrestricted battery usage for a specific app:

  1. Press and hold the app’s icon on the home screen and tap on the “i” button.
  2. Scroll down and tap on Battery.
  3. You will now see three options on your screen: Unrestricted, Optimized, and Restricted. Make sure you have selected Unrestricted.

Disable Background Usage Limits

Samsung tends to put unused apps to sleep to help save battery. Therefore, if your app is in Sleep mode, it might be the reason why your phone is missing notifications. Therefore, to disable the background usage limit:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap on Battery and device care.
  3. Look for Battery and tap it.
  4. Now click on Background usage limits. Make sure the toggle next to Put unused apps to sleep is turned off.

Enable Background data usage to fix delayed Notifications on S22 Ultra

If your app requires an internet connection to receive notifications, it might be possible that OneUI is not letting it access the internet because of background data usage limits. Therefore, to enable background data usage:

  1. Select the app for which you want to enable background data usage.
  2. Press and hold the app’s icon on the home screen and tap on the “i” button.
  3. Tap on Mobile data.
  4. Toggle on the Allow background data usage option.

Disable Data Saver

On Samsung phones, data saver mode is designed to help users reduce their data usage by blocking background data usage and optimizing images and videos. However, if enabled, it could also cause interference with notifications. Therefore, to disable data saver mode:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Tap on Connections, then click on Data usage.
  3. Toggle off the Data saver option.


Delayed notifications on the S22 Ultra could have various causes, but the solutions we outlined in this blog post are easy to follow and will help you ensure that you never miss any important notifications on your phone.
