    Seral apps that I use for push notifications like K9, Whatsapp automatically switch to 'optimised' from 'not-optimised' state. I use those apps for getting notifications on incoming messages/mails. After some time (usually days) those apps are switched automatically to optimised, effectively stopping synchronisation and notification on new messages.

    I have this issue on my OnePlus 6 with latest available build (A6003_22_180607) for the Wire messenger:

    With battery optimization turned on, no notifications are received. However, turning battery optimization for the app off only fixes the problem for a couple of days, after which the app is somehow again optimized. I will continue to monitor the issue and provide more input as I detect it.

    The issue is unrelated to device restarts, that I have just confirmed.

    Itchy.de : correct! Exact same behavior here. Very annoying tbh! Happens randomly. I also have app updates turned off!

    Same here! It happens to Life360, Kevo, and SmartThings all the time. I have 5T. It renders those apps unreliable because you never know when the setting would get reset and the apps get killed. Extremely annoying! Also I've already turned off "Advanced optimization" so that's not relevant either.

    Spotify and Player FM are switching from "not optimized" to "optimized" - OnePlus 3T - last official Update!

    Same problem here. Turned off advanced battery optimization but still showing optimized for WhatsApp and Facebook in app info. Plus can't change the battery optimization for any system apps like Gmail, WiFi etc. Very Problematic.

    Same problem here with K9 Mail. OnePlus 5T latest OS 5.1.3. In the app details the app is optimized in the system settings not. After some time it also changes back in the system settings.

    Same issue here.. it is happening for outlook email application. I don't recieve email notifications after that !

    Some how it works for Truecaller. But as soon as I get this pop up that the app is using more battery life, it resets the preference.

    Same here , using OP 6 ... My email app closes and I can't get my incoming emails... I must manually refresh the inbox everytime.
    I turn off battery optimization and in a couple of hours it's on again.

    Same here with OnePlus 5T OxygenOS 5.1.4 (Android 8.1.0), although it doesn't happen with WhatsApp, only with certain other apps like App Usage and App Detox.

    Here's what we know:

    - The issue doesn't seem to be specific to any app
    - It doesn't seem to have any correlation to updating an app

    Personally I don't experience this issue with whatsapp, but I do experience it with many other apps (Spotify, Tasker, a widely used speedcamera detector, Drivesync, and more)

    hardware: 5t A5010
    software: 8.1.0 / oxygen 5.1.4 / build 43_180718

    This really has got to be fixed. Makes my phone literally unusable. I can't rely on any backgroundtasks this way.

    I get the same issue when using Waze with Android Auto with my OP3T (Oxygen 5.0.5, Android 8.0.0). In order for Waze to work with Android Auto I have to set Waze to 'not optimise" but it randomly it changes back to "Optimise" which I only discover when I get closure issues with Waze on AA. It happened yesterday but the Waze App hasn't been updated for 3 weeks so it doesn't appear to have happened when Waze got updated, just randomly. Don't know why when you have manually changed it to 'not optimise' it would change it back automatically? very annoying and would love this to get fixed.

    Same here - OP 5T, OP5T_O2_BETA_15

    May happen with more apps but consistently MaaS360 (Enterprise MDM), Lux & Tasker
