Hi, I just got my Nexus 7 last week and have an issue with dismissing notifications.

I thought at I/o a year back they said that if u dismiss a notification on one device it should dissappear on others on that Google account too?

Mine doesn't however, for games or gmail or hangouts or exchange. Is there a check box to allow this?

Both devices are running 4.4.

There is a delay, not sure how long but sometimes it can take a few minutes for my N7 and G2 to sync notifications, never paid attention to desktop notifications

They seem to remain indefinatly for me. I don't know what I've done wrong.

Sometimes it works. Gmail usually doesn't for me though.

Is there a good official forum to post this inside? I fear this isn't really the right place to post this thread. Its more of a 4.4.4 post.

It was unveiled at last year's I/O, but it was up to the developers to implement that feature into their apps. That being said, my Gmail and Hangouts notifications work as they should (disappearing off all my other devices once checked on one device). Pretty much almost all of Google's apps have this implemented. Sad to say, but it doesn't appear there were very many devs that took advantage of this. There are still a lot of apps that leave notifications even though I've checked them on another device.

ah thanks, I see why some games don't but still find it strange that my gmail apps aren't.
