Folks,
My phone forced me to upgrade to android 13 about three weeks ago.

I get an annoying message appearing when I close apps down telling me how many closed and how much memory has been freed up.

I really do not need to know this and it is more annoying as this message box at the bottom of the screen appears for about 4-5 seconds.
Not a deal breaker but annoying.

T-mobile tells me to call motorola,
Motorola tells me to call google.

Anyone experience what I describe and anyone know a work- around?

No not a hardware but a ROM issue. Most of the android Operating system is is flash ROM but some is is straight ROM (Read Only Memory. FLASH can be reflashed but the part that is hard wired can not) Motorola put those notifications in the hard not the firm part

But it might be an app you installed or that Motorola installed. Part of the ****-ware that comes with all computers these days.

@ wa8yxm,
So you think it is a phone hardware issue?
It was not happening before the Android 13 update a few weeks ago. I noticed this only after that upgrade.

I got the phone at no cost to me by switching to T-mobile.
I like the phone, it does everything I need...
...and this "notification" thingy does not inhibit anything, it's just annoying.

Essentially, Mortorola told me that they are aware of this idiosyncrasy. I quizzed them as to why I could not find another person who is experiencing the same thing. (hence, me asking to the many folks here.)

They said that it will be more common as people get new phones with the updated OS. They said there is nothing I can do about this. My phone is about 6 months old (that is when I got it.) They said older phones when updating OS will not see this.


I think, when your Cell provider lets you.. You need to upgrade to Samsung if they can not fix it.

And let batwing international (Nick name for Motorola) know you plan to do that .

I didn’t see anyone else responding that had a Motorola phone. One of the “benefits” to Android is the ability for hardware companies to build specific versions of the OS. Same for the telco companies all in efforts to set their offering apart from the others. It’s one reason it takes so long for customers to adopt the new OS.

I am no computer whiz but it sounded like bunkum to me. I hope I described properly what the situation is and they truly understood.

I sort of agree it is an app notification setting, but what app is it? I have looked at what I think it could be. I stopped by two T-mobile stores and the reps in the store (at least 40 years younger than me-LOL) and they thought the same thing but could not identify the app with which it might be associated.

Here is an image of what I am describing:

Look through all of the "Notifications" settings and see if there is one for Android or system notifications that got turned on with the update.

I do not see that "annoying message" on my 'droid13
Might be a performance improvence app you have on the phone reporting it
Or it might be a setting you can toggle.

I am on 13 (no idea when that happened) and don't see anything similar on my Samsung S21. A recent update does show any programs running in the background when I use the 3 vertical bars at the bottom to close any open program. Very rarely is anything listed as I close all apps when I am done using them.

I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy A51 to 13 some time back, and haven't seen anything like that.
