I have a standard implementation of listening to event and show a popup with notification contents.

Expected behavior: When app is in foreground, listen to event and show a popup with notification contents.

Observation on Android: 1. When app is in foreground, there is no popup (as a result of event doesn’t fire). Notification shows in notification area. 2. Notification when clicked triggers event and I see a popup. This is true for any notification that shows even when app is in background.

Observation on iOS: 1. When app is in foreground, I see the popup. Notification doesn’t shows in notification area. This is expected and good.

Code sample:

document.addEventListener('push-notification', () => {
let content;
  if (Platform.isIOS()) {
    content = event.notification && event.notification.aps && event.notification.aps.alert;
  } else if (Platform.isAndroid()) {
    content = event.notification && event.notification.title;

Could you please tell me whether you've added the PW_BROADCAST_PUSH metadata in your Manifest file?
