    Not getting Xbox msgs on my Xbox, but they're going to my Xbox app on my phone


    I'm having a really weird issue where when someone sends me a private message, I don't get a notification on my xbox, but I get it on my phone through the Xbox app. I have no idea why this is happening. It seemed to start all of the sudden randomly. I have
    the settings on my Xbox app to show messages, but I assumed this would just show messages on my Xbox and my phone at the same time. Is there any settings I can change to fix this?

    Here's the settings I have set on my Xbox app on my phone.

    This is on a Samsung Galaxy S8 running Android 8. My Xbox is an Xbox One X running the latest firmware. I looked around in my settings for my Xbox and I have it set to receive messages, so I have no idea what the problem is.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

    :)

    How do I contact them? I tweeted @XboxSupport on Twitter but got no reply.

    One problem I have is I can't delete the old messages. It tells me I have new messages, but I've already read them and it continues to show I have new messages.

    I might try your suggestion, but like I said, I'm having trouble deleting the messages. I assume if I remove my account and re-add it, then power cycle it would probably clear those messages though, right?

    I just wanted to bump this thread back up. I still don't know how to contact Xbox Support directly.

    I had a similar issue a while back. The solution I found was to delete old messages on both console in via the app. I then removed my account from console, did a power cycle by pressing and holding the power button till fully off then wait 60 seconds and
    power up again. Added my account back on and everything worked.
