I have a TECNO Spark 2 running on Android 8.1 Oreo (Go Edition). Every time I try to install apps that require notification access, it says that the feature is not available.

A message saying "This feature is not available on this device" when opening Notification access on Android Go

How to fix it?

Currently, the only known solution is to revert to the full-fledged Android (may need root access).

There have been many reports regarding the issue:

Due to the restriction that is put on Android Go, the notification access is disabled (for more information: Why is the Android Go's performance better?)

The only known solution is to revert to the full-fledged Android. There are multiple approaches:

  • Set ro.config.low_ram to false on the build.prop (need root access).
  • Downgrade to the previous full-fledged Android version
  • Flash a custom ROM that is not based on Android Go
