How do I use People Edge to add my favorite contacts on my Galaxy S6 Edge+?

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

People Edge

The People edge gives quick access to frequently used contacts and will flash a color across the edge of the screen when you receive a notification from the selected contacts.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

Using People Edge

People edge allows you to set important contacts for custom notifications on the Edge screen. People edge lights up the Edge screen with different colors when you get notifications from the contacts you've designated as "My people."

1. From the Home screen, swipe the Edge screen handle across the screen.


2. People edge is now displayed. The color of the icon determines what color the People edge will flash when receiving a notification from the selected contact. Touch an Add contact icon.

Note: If Apps edge is displayed instead of People edge, swipe the screen right or left.


3. Touch a contact.


4. An icon is added for the selected contact and the People edge will now flash with the chosen color when receiving notifications from that contact. Touch the other Add contact icons to add up to five total contacts to People edge.


5. Touch any contact for access to calling or messaging options for that contact.


Note: To remove a contact from the People Edge, touch and hold the contact icon, drag it to Remove, then release when it turns red.

Note: To turn People edge notifications on or off, touch the Settings button, then touch the switch to ON or OFF.
