Re: Google Pixel phone, no notification on app

The app icon will not give you an unread messages count.  You need to add the app WIDGET to get the unread count.

Long press any area of the homescreen, and tap Widgets at the bottom of the screen.  Then scroll down to Messages, and hold and drag that to your homescreen.
