Quick-fix for notification on Android Oreo 8.1 (v1.40)


Recommended Posts

Poweramp Notification Helper

As known on Android Oreo 8.1 we get issue with notification in statusbar. I created small app for replace it with the custom notification.

You need:

  1. Install app.
  2. Turn off notifications from Poweramp in system app settings.
  3. Exclude Poweramp Notification Helper from Battery Optimization (otherwise service will killed after screen off)
  4. Start app and check "Start service".
  5. Enjoy!

Thanks for the fix clever_man!!!

One bug. The albumart is off.  It is always one track behind. Using Poweramp 2.0.

Also a little odd. When you click the notification it goes to the list view not the player view.

But I'm glad to have the controls working again :-)

I tried it out on my Pixel XL on 8.1. It kinda works? Once I started playing a song, it took about 5-10 seconds for it to appear in my notifications. When I try to change tracks or pause, it takes a few seconds to respond. When I do pause, the pause button doesn't change to a play button, it remains the pause button. This may work for some but I'm going to continue to wait for a proper fix.

Thank you very much for this quick fix! 

Just installed it and very pleased

Seem to be working fine at the moment. Little delay noticed on pause and back/forward option but still working pretty fine. Better than nothing! ?

Model: Google Pixel2 XL

Android version: 8.1.0

I got a problem on Android 8.1.0: the notification shows the wrong album cover.

Reproducing the problem:

  1. Start music, cover is displayed correctly
  2. Change track, either from notification or Poweramp app, the cover does not change
  3. Change track again, the album cover changes, but to the previously played track's.

So this happens: track1 cover1 → track2 cover1 → track3 cover2 → track4 cover3 → etc
