I've tried a couple of the recommended apps. Pixel Pulse was still too subtle to be noticed from afar. I couldn't get Always on Edge to wake up my phone screen, though after a lot of trouble it DID finally blink when I had the screen on... I'm almost positive I gave it all the requested (and optional) permissions. Is there another recommended app that could produce a noticeable blinking light when I get a notification? In case it matters, I am using a Pixel 3a.
I am pretty sure with this device your only choice is to use AOD and then these apps work. Otherwise, they can only really wake the screen. I use LED blinker with AOD on and it works every time, but can be a bit glitchy when trying to open the phone to see the notification. What I mean is, if I use my fingerprint, it does not always go to homescreen, I have to press power button to relock and try again. This is really google's fault for not adding a native option for some kind of blinking on the screen. I think no matter what it would require AOD to work though.
Even with AOD on (which is not my preference) these apps still don't seem to work correctly. Do I also have to disable the wake screen for notifications option? I really dislike these choices.
I'm getting really frustrated that I practically have to hack my phone to get it to do things that my phone from 4 years ago could do natively.
