Oneplus 7 Pro ambient display not working

    I have been using the phone for a day. Ambient display was working perfectly but now it has stopped working. Following are things I tried but got no success:
    1. Cleared cache and data followed by restart
    2. Turned on the option "Tap the screen to show" followed by restart
    3. Turned off the option and restart

    When receiving notifications also it is not working.

    *UPDATE* - After few hours having this issue it has randomly started working.

    My phone updated then ambient display stopped working. lift to wake and double tap also isn't working. Neither is the drawing features on the off screen.

    Mine is currently not working in any capacity. Restarted phone, and turned the options off and back on again. This is a crucial software feature for me -- I need to be able to easily wake my phone without having to press the lock button.

    *Edit*
    After plugging my phone into my computer to transfer some photos over, it suddenly started working again. Probably a coincidence, but who knows.

    *Edit 2*
    Not working again. Was working for about 10 mins. Then suddenly stopped.

    I am also facing similar issue. I guess after the update it stopped working.
    Single Tap, new notification nothing is working.

    Even the blue light that is displayed on the curve for new notifications is not working

    Update:-
    It somehow started working automatically from the next day. i have been using it in a completely dark room as well and its working fine now.
    so dont know what the cause was. as i did not even restart or clear cache

    I had an issue earlier with double tap to wake/lock working but it started working again and hasn't stopped since.

    I got the phone yesterday morning and probably sometime during the evening it stopped doing double tap to wake. It probably stayed that way for a few hours before it eventually just started working again. Wish I could say I had a solution but I didn't do anything other than turn it off and on again in settings and I'm pretty sure that wasn't what fixed it.

    All I can suggest is the basic stuff like device restart and maybe even power down and wait about 30 seconds and then start again. Other than that I've got no helpful solution but I feel your pain. Sorry! [e]1f625[/e]

    I'm also facing the issue from morning, it suddenly starts working when I tried turning ON/OFF the DND mode. But for last one hour ambient display is completely not working.
    Hope OnePlus will release a software update to fix the issue. If someone knows how to fix the issue, please help me with that. Thanks in Advance


    *UPDATED*
    It is working fine when I tried clearing the cache data!
    In 7pro version!

    I doubt this makes a difference, but it's worth making sure, are you guy using the T-Mobile variant or the International/OnePlus.com version?

    I personally am using the Tmobile variant, and have been having issues with the ambient screen + wake features.

    yeah, Go to settings > search for "Ambient"> ambient display ( app info ) > clear the cache memory
