Sometimes some app/apps are in the device background and inactive which means they are open but you are working and running another app. So, background means when the app is open but you are out. and foreground is when it is open and you are in.)

No popup: no message from servers will be received.

Only when the screen is active: you will be sent messages from servers only when your mobile screen is on and active.

Only when the screen is black: you will be sent messages from servers only when your mobile screen is on a sleep mode and gets black.

Show popup always: all messages from servers will be always received.
