Flutter App Icon Badge plugin #

This Flutter plugin you can use to change the badge of the app

Supported platforms #

  • iOS
  • Android - some Android devices (the official API does not support the feature, even on Oreo)
  • MacOs
  • Windows - work in progress (need help)
  • Linux - work in progress (need help)

Getting Started #

iOS #

On iOS, the notification permission is required to update the badge. It is automatically asked when the badge is added or removed.

Please also add the following to your Info.plist:

<key>UIBackgroundModes</key>
    <array>
        <string>remote-notification</string>
    </array>

Android #

On Android, no official API exists to show a badge in the launcher. But some devices (Samsung, HTC...) support the feature. Thanks to the Shortcut Badger library, ~ 16 launchers are supported.

Dart #

First, you just have to import the package in your dart files with:

import 'package:flutter_app_icon_badge/flutter_app_icon_badge.dart';

Then you can add a badge:

FlutterAppIconBadge.updateBadge(1);

Remove a badge:

FlutterAppIconBadge.removeBadge();

Or just check if the device supports this feature with:

FlutterAppIconBadge.isAppBadgeSupported();

Another useful method in this plugin - detect if flutter desktop window in focus or not:

FlutterAppIconBadge.isAppBadgeSupported();
