Android app notifications


I’m new to the Rocket.Chat Android app, using the latest stable version in the Play store, v 4.27.1. I’m trying to figure out how to enable Notifications on my devices. For example, I would like a notification on my device once I receive a message. The desktop app works this way, but I cannot get the mobile version to do the same. I’ve verified that Notifications are enabled for the app on the device, too. This should be simple but I cannot figure out what I’m missing. I do not want to go through setting up Push Notifications infrastructure, just simply want the mobile app to give me Notifications on my device. Many other apps do this right out of the box. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you.
