In this article, I’m going to show you how to disable android app notifications. Tell me if this sounds familiar: You’re in the middle of important work and your phone buzzes, along with a “ding”. You check it to see the notification — you don’t want to miss anything important, after all. You swipe down Android’s notifications bar and there it is: an annoying ad, a message from an app you don’t need, or something else just as useless. Let’s put an end to that, shall we?
Tired of all the annoying app notifications that just keep coming? Besides bugging you, they can also drain your phone’s battery. If you want to disable some notifications you don’t need, we’ll show you how to do this on Google devices and Samsung devices. In this post, I will show how to stop Android app notifications.
How to Disable Android App Notifications?
There are two ways to disable app notifications in Android. The first method is to use the Android Apps settings to disable app notifications in Android devices. And The second method is to see if the app provides any built-in app notifications.
Method 1: Stop App Notifications from app Settings
Notifications Off allows you to turn off notifications for all applications. It can also automatically disable notifications for new apps as soon as they are installed.
To Disable App notifications, go to>Settings>General>click Application Manager or (App).
On the “Apps” screen, scroll through the list of apps and touch the app for which you want to stop receiving notifications.
The “App info” screen displays for the selected app. Touch the “Show notifications” check box so there’s no check mark in the box.
A dialog box displays making sure you really want to turn off notifications. Touch “OK” to disable notifications for this app.
Method 2: Disable App Notifications from the App
Some apps including the Google official apps such as the Google Play Store app and the YouTube app offers a built-in option to disable app notifications. If you are dealing with some other app other than Google official apps, then open the app and go to Settings. Under settings, there could be an option to disable app notifications.
If you are dealing with YouTube app for Android and want to disable notification for it, here is how to do it.
Open YouTube app on your Android Phone. Click on right hand corner>Settings
Under The Setting page, click on Notification.
Under Notifications, if you slide and turn off the first option (Notify on this Device) then all the notifications from YouTube to your Android device will be stopped.
However, if you want to disable only specific notifications then leave the first option as it is and turn off the Notification that you don’t want to receive.
Now the built-in Notification disabling feature is not limited to official Google apps, but some other apps also offer it. So, before you move on to the First method, give try That method.Tagged with:
