Galaxy Note9 - Control App Notifications (SM-N960W)

You can't go a minute without checking your Gmail, but you're sick of getting alerts from that old game. Instead of constantly sifting through your notifications, select which apps send alerts and which ones don't. Or, you can customize the way your favorite apps send alerts. Oh, and if you are wondering alerts include notifications, sounds, and vibrations.

Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
