    As the title mentioned, I was caught by surprised when out of a sudden, I've got notification directly from Instagram WITHOUT opening the app. And I haven't open the Instagram app for the past few days.
    Only Igrann.

    Well, let the picture speaks for itself.

    I've got Instagram Push Notifications in Hub!!-img_20141224_110005.png

    As for the Instagram app, I'm using the latest version from Snap.
    And running the latest Leak OS Z30STA100-2/10.3.1.1154 using Blitz installation almost a month back.

    Uploading everything works.
    Video upload ONLY works if you shoot n post. Not working if you select video from files.

    Both of them works in tandem.
    Actually Igrann Pro notifications came a second or two after instagram push notifications came in.
    Ok, maybe 3 seconds later. But not too late.

    Did some looking around and don't remember seeing this as an option before. Maybe they just added it which is why it works

    Does the instagram app drain battery excessively or make the phone hot?

    I think we need those who have instagram push notifications to work, to share their settings.

    Most probably why I've got it to work as I was sharing with Big Picture, is that I have Google Play services running in my phone. Using Cobalt's thread to run play and services.

    That's my set up which I saw could probably trigger the push notifications.

    Here's my Instagram graphs showing small spikes which translates IG app trying to pull (if there's any) notifications to my phone.

    I've got Instagram Push Notifications in Hub!!-img_20141224_130852.png

    And the higher spikes in batt graph shows I opened IG.

    What's your set up if you've received Push Notifications from Instagram?

    If we can solve this, it means ALL android apps will have push notifications to the hub.

    How cool is that?

    I've got the deliveries package tracking app doing the same on the last official passport build. No instagram notifications though. I'm also using Cobalts google trick

    My biggest problem with BB10 since the start has been lack of notifications for Android Apps!

    This would actually be so good.

    I wonder if those who are getting notifications have restored a leak or not... since I did a wipe and load of 10.3.1.1154 (blitz, not autoloader) I've been experiencing way more notifications on android apps than I was before.

    Not sure if it has anything to do with 10.2.1 or previous android runtimes, or something like that. I don't use instagram so I can't comment on that specifically but the android apps I DO use provide me with accurate, working notifications all the time - it's like night and day!

    Did you install from the google play store? I installed deliveries from google play and its showing dynamic notifications. I installed my instagram from google play and it doesn't crash as much as the same version from snap.

    I've installed google account, play services, android settings, blackberry google and play store as per cobalt's page on my z10 10.3.1.1154

    I'm still not getting notifications...... it's frustrating. I'll keep trying....

    Not so much. Whether or not a notification is delivered at all to an app is dependent on the push messaging solution the app uses. If they use Google cloud messaging then no message is delivered. At all. Even if the app is running in the background. Facebook messenger is a good example of this.

    Luckily Instagram appears to be running c2dm if I'm not mistaken. Notifications will come through so long as the app is "open" (just because we close it in the BlackBerry environment doesn't mean that there isn't a service running in the background of the android vm environment) . Theoretically, packaging it to run headless could make notifications work consistently. There's a thread by cobalt that details how to do so-- it'd be a worthwhile exercise for someone to try. I should caution that it'd only be useful for the person who has a debug token specific to their device installed.
