Microsoft Teams is one of the best team management tools for businesses and organizations to collaborate and communicate remotely. Do you miss out on useful information and updates from your team or colleagues? That’s possible if the Microsoft Teams app is not sending notifications for new messages, mentions, and other things.


You may wonder what happened and seek fixes for Microsoft Teams app sending proper notifications on Windows 10.


Have you activated Battery Saver option on your Windows laptop? If yes, then you might want to turn off that feature to receive the notifications from the Microsoft Teams without delay. Battery Saver helps you conserve battery power on your Windows 10 computer by temporarily suspending processes like app updates, live updates of Start Menu tiles, etc. However, Battery Saver also prevents some apps from sending you (push) notifications.

To fix the Microsoft Teams notifications missing issue, you should try turning off your PC’s battery saver. Follow the steps below to see how.

Step 1: Launch the Windows Settings menu.

Step 2: Select System.

Step 3:
 Tap Battery on the left pane.

Step 4: Scroll to the Battery saver section and toggle off the ‘Battery saver status until next charge’ option.

Alternatively, you can tap the battery icon on your PC’s taskbar and click on the Battery saver option in the battery pane.

Another quick way to get your Windows computer out of Battery saver mode is to plug it to a power source. The Windows 10 operating system is designed to automatically disable Battery saver whenever your PC is plugged in/charging.

After deactivating Battery saver, check to see if the Microsoft teams notifications now come in or not.

If you need to use Focus assist to get through some tasks on your computer, you can customize when and how Focus assist works instead of turning it off. That way, you still get to use Focus assist and the feature wouldn’t prevent your Microsoft Teams notifications from coming in.

By default, the Focus assist feature is designed to switch on when you are carrying out certain activities that require undivided attention on your computer. That would stop all notifications coming from majority of apps including Microsoft Teams. When you are gaming, Focus assist can activate automatically to pause all Microsoft Teams notifications and silently push them to the Action Center. The same applies to projecting/duplicating your screen to an external display and using an app in full screen mode.
