For those who don't follow G+, there's a new beta online.

The delay screen on feature doesn't seem to work with my WhatsApp. Screen turns on almost immediately and cuts off the notification sound. Doesn't happen with other notification s.

Hey...

Got a LG Q6 to test GN with :P
I'll report back in G+ or here if I find something wrong.

Cheers!

A question.

When the phone is on "mute" and not on Do Not Disturb, notifications won't show up.
GN is set to go along with Do Not Disturb configuration.

Is there a way for GN to differentiate both modes, so that notifications will still work when on mute?

Thanks!

I don't know off the top of my head, I will need to check it when I have some time.

Drop me a line if you need logs, albeit it's an "in your face" behavior.

Thanks!

Reporting.
The screen-on timer, when repeating the notification, seldom obeys to the selected seconds.
I have selected 3 seconds (from screen on to off). Most of the times, the screens stays on for more than that (around 10s).
The same happens with less or more time selected.

Thanks!

Note that physically turning off the screen is not possible in Android (by design) so I need some kind of work around which involves showing a black screen until the screen actually turns off.

If the screen really stays fully visible for more than the selected time, please do create a log reproducing this and email it to me.

Oh...I thought that, using a quicker screen-on timer would save me some battery. Since it's not an AMOLED display, showing a black screen still engages backlight, which is the battery drainer.
The damn phone doesn't have a LED to make the user aware of missed messages, calls or even if the battery is depleted or charging...boy I do know how to pick them!

Well it probably will save you some battery, because usually the GN triggered screen off will be quicker than the system default. And I agree, it does work better with Amoled.
In case you're interested in some tech details, read this. Don't bother to comment though, Google staff has made it quite clear they don't want a proper "screen off" API because of DoS apps.
