Currently, Nougat runs on only 0.3 percent of total number of Android devices, but soon, more flagships will be updated. Everyone must have heard by now about the new features that Google has introduced in the new operating system and we won’t talk about them again. Instead, we will explain you how to manage notifications, which have received some enhancements.
So, in order to view your current list of notifications, you will swipe down from the top of the screen and if you touch any of the notifications, you will be taken directly into that application. After touching the notification, it will disappear from the drop-down list. Also, if you want to have access to customization options, you will slide from one side to another and a settings wheel will be revealed. Tap on it and choose to show notifications silently, or to block them from the app, or not to change anything about them, leaving them as they stand.
If you’ll click the power button of your device, the screen will awaken and you’ll see a list of notifications on the lock screen. Now, you will have to swipe down on the screen and if there are hidden notifications, they will appear at the top of the screen, grouped.
You can dismiss notifications by swiping them away, and in order to have access to notification customization settings, you will slide the notification to the right or left. Also, to get rid of all the notifications from the lock screen, you will need to swipe down and select the Clear All option to eliminate everything.
By going to Settings > Notifications, you will be able to customize notifications: to show them silently, to be displayed on the lock screen, or to override Do Not Disturb mode. More options will be revealed by tapping the On The Lock Screen option. You will choose to either see all notification content or hide sensitive content, but if you’re not interested in seeing any notifications at all, choose this option.
