        Well, dagani that's definitely a bit strange, but we'll try to figure this out. Can you try signing out then signing back into your email account? Another step you could try is going to the GMail app, tap on menu (3 horizontal lines) > tap Settings > tap your email account > make sure the Notifications check box is checked. Please let us know if you need more help. Thank you.

            Hi Mike, I've determined that it's Nougat's doze feature, aka battery usage optimization. It's buried deeper in Nougat than in Marshmellow. It's in setting's device maintanance, battery, battery usage rectangle, 3 verticle dot menu, optimize battery usage . There, I UNOPTIMIZED gmail and google app (this setting did not carry over from the update). Now I get my gmail notifs. closer to real time. Most times in seconds. Hopes this helps to others experiencing this issue. Thanks.
