I have tried everything in terms of manipulating the settings, but I cannot get horizon light to work at all, am I the only one with this issue, and does anyone know what needs to be done in order for it to function that isn't obvious?

No issues here. The colored bars show up when the screen is off and a notification comes in. I do have always on display, well, always on....not sure if that matters or not.

Mine doesn't seem to work either on the NA phone. And I can't even tell, are they supposed to light up just once or do they act more like the old notification LEDs?

yeah I tried that but to no avail, is it lighting up with any app or only certain ones? for example, I use fairemail for email and threema/signal for messaging, and it does not light up for any. moreover, it doesn't light up for anything at all, very frustrating.

I've noticed it for notifications from the stock messaging app and Gmail, but haven't seen anything else trigger it yet.

It's not that bright and only does it once so if you blink you will miss it!
I tested it with a calendar notification, not sure what else it works on. Don't remember seeing it for WhatsApp 🤔
Eta: it does work on most things, just miss it unless you are looking for it.

Only does it once, you're right. Basically pointless lol.
Im not entirely sure how well this works, but I have messed around with this app previous. I used an app on the playstore called AOA by newGen Mobile, its not quite an ambient display but it is an Always on Display app that enables you to customize your horizon lights as you see fit(color, duration, pattern and such). There is a free version of it if you want to at least try it out.
