have you ever seen it work in an Xperia device ? if not then it might be that xperia doesn't support or have this feature,.

By peeking, are you referring to a message dropping down on the display regardless of what app you are using? Similar to what you can see on this link: http://www.droid-life.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/peeking-android-m.gif
Could you provide some examples on what applications it is that are not working?
Keep me posted!

Hi again @_psycho,
As far as I know this is controlled by each individual app. The system itself allows app peeking but each application has to enable it in order for it to work.
I'll see if I can get some confirmation on this.

I've just received confirmation that app peeking is allowed by the system but controlled on an application level, meaning that each individual application controls if this will work or not. There are no settings to change this I'm afraid.
You can find more thorough information about how notifications work on Google's developer forum, found on the following link: https://developer.android.com/guide/topics/ui/notifiers/notifications.html#Heads-up
Note that I can unfortunately not comment on the information you find there.

Since I've updated to Nougat I experience strange notifications with the heads up (peeking) in the screen when you receive a Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger etc.
With Android 6 it was possible to get a notification with sound and vibrate, but NO heads-up/peeking option. That was great! Now you can disable the peeking option, but it doesn't also vibrate and make a sound then. This is very annoying.
Who know a solution? Now it comes every in my screen when I get a Whatsapp and when you are browsing sometimes you click on the notification and you go immeditaly onlline... Not very great.

Hehe, i want the complete opposite... I don't have peeking and want to enable it funny.
In this thread it has been mentioned that the app must support peeking in order to work. Can someone confirm that the official Email app on my Xperia XZ doesn't support it? Peeking doesn't work there.
But i couldn't find any kind of email app either that would work on my Xperia for peeking.
Outlook, Nine to name the big names, none of them peeks.
Viber, Messages, Calls, Whatsapp peek fine, but no email...
I am coming from the iphone, where each and every app peeks as a standard feature of iOS core, it's not up to the app to decide. In this regard, Android is behind. In iOS i can control this behavior for every app i install, independent of it's support for it. Still a way to go for Android on the notification path to reach iOS.
