Why does it look very similar to this tutorial posted on May 16, 2019. If this is your original code, you should tell the publisher as I see your's is from much older time

Not working on After android 10 update.
make sure to add notification channel for api level greater than Android 7

if (Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= Build.VERSION_CODES.O) {
String channelName = "My Background Service";
NotificationChannel chan = new NotificationChannel("com.offline.english.dictionary.speech.translator",
channelName, NotificationManager.IMPORTANCE_LOW);
chan.setLightColor(Color.BLUE);
chan.setLockscreenVisibility(Notification.VISIBILITY_PRIVATE);
notificationManager.createNotificationChannel(chan);
}

    notificationManager.notify(2, notification);

also add this to get notification funtion

    Notification.Builder builder = null;
    if (android.os.Build.VERSION.SDK_INT >= android.os.Build.VERSION_CODES.O) {
        builder = new Notification.Builder(this,
                "com.offline.english.dictionary.speech.translator");
    }
    else {
        builder = new Notification.Builder(this);
    }
