Galaxy S10 - Use Edge lighting (SM-G970W, SM-G973W & SM-G975W)

You're about to get a perfect combo in a game, but a notification pops up and blocks the screen. There goes your score. With the Edge lighting option, you can enjoy fewer interruptions. This feature will make the edges of your Galaxy phone light up whenever you receive a text or notification, instead of sending you a push notification.

Information provided applies to devices sold in Canada. Available screens and settings may vary for smartphones sold in other countries. Edge lighting may not work with third-party apps.

Edge lighting settings

Try Edge lighting when you’re in the zone and want minimal distractions. From Settings, search for and select Edge lighting. Tap the switch to turn it on or off (Edge lighting is on by default).
