Getting text messages to show up

On my 17 m3 (no apple play) I would see a small envelope icon on the upper right of the idrive screen.

On my 18 (with car play) I can't seem to get it to work. On my iPhone I would usually go to the Bluetooth setting and click sync notifications and it would work. Now instead of that I see an option for CarPlay. I used car play and prefer the bmw system so I have that disabled

Anyway to get it to work?

Just a guess... the ‘17 had the Wireless Charging option, the 18 does not. Note: there will be no envelope icon while in CarPlay mode regardless of Wireless charging option.
