Can't figure out notifications

I have read all the settings guides, I believe I have all the notifications settings enabled, but I don’t see any sort of indication of new messages. I opted into Tree, it’s working as far as showing new messages when I swipe over to the Tree panel but there seems to be no indication that a new message has come in. I have to swipe over and check. Is that intentional since Ratio is supposed to minimize distractions? Can I somehow get notifications even if so?

Since switching to Ratio I’m not even getting sms notifications (I use default messages app from Google). I guess I thought I would still be getting them through the top notifications bar from Android
