How do I turn the LED settings on or off on my Galaxy S6 and S6 edge?

The LED indicator is located at the top left of the front of your device. It can display various colours such as Blue, Red and Green.

 

These colours are for standard notifications and functions of your device. 

 

Blue

- Pulsing: the device is turning on or off.

- Blinking: there is an unread notification (missed call, message etc) or during voice recording.
 

Red

- Glowing: connected to a charger and charging.

- Blinking: connected to a charger but not charging, or when low on battery.

 

Green

-Glowing: connected to a charger and fully charged.

-Blinking: fully charged.

 

Other colours

Your Samsung device has the above colour notifications but it may blink other colours (such as white, purple or pink) if you have installed third-party apps that include LED notifications.

 

For example, your LED will blink white for a notification from Whatsapp.

 

If your device is blinking a colour that you don’t recognise and is not one of the Samsung notification colours, it may be because of a new application that you’ve downloaded.

 

Depending on the third-party app, you may be able to turn off the notifications within the app, or you can turn off certain functions and notifications on the device itself.

 

Follow the below steps to turn LED notifications on or off.
