Its very clean artical…can you help me to understand how to set badge count when we receive push notification in Android…?

I’m using kotlin here…

Hi, @praghupa I’m glad you liked the tutorial! From Android API level 26 and onwards (android 8.0), apps will show notification dots without the need of adding any functionality. If you long-tap on an icon that has a notification dot you will see how many notifications you have, there is also no need to add code. Unlike iOS, you can’t display the number of notifications directly in the dot.

Here is the Android official documentation if you want to read more on the topic:
