Unread icon bagde

For starters I know there is widget for that and it works, just looks different than “native” badge and I don’t like that way.

Badge counter for unread messages doesn’t show up on application icon, I already tried a lot of reinstalling, restarting phone, clearing cache (of app and Launcher) and changing notification settings.

Is there a way to make it work now or in the future?

I’m using Asus ZenFone 9 - there is a unified list of apps which are allowed to show badge like that and K-9 isn’t even there.
