How do I Change the Application Notifications on my Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5?

You can control which applications push notifications to your device using the Application notifications settings.

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

Set Application Notifications as Priority

Setting application notifications as priority means notifications will display at the top of the Notification Panel, even when your device is in Do not disturb mode.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Sounds and notifications .

    It may be necessary to touch the DEVICE tab and then touch Sounds and notifications.

  4. Scroll to and touch Application notifications.
  5. Touch the application for which you want to adjust notification priority.
  6. Touch the slider next to Set as priority to turn on the priority setting. Notifications from this application will display at the top of the Notification Panel when your Do not disturb settings allow priority notifications.
  7. Touch Back to manage the notification settings for more applications. Applications with the priority setting turned on are identified by the words Set as priority under the application name.

Block Application Notifications

Blocking notifications for an application means notifications will not display on your lock screen, status bar, or in the Notification Panel. For example, if you block Google Chrome notifications, your device will not display a notification and will not play a sound or vibrate when you receive notifications from Chrome.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.

  6. Touch the slider next to Block to turn on notification blocking. The block setting will override the priority setting if both are turned on. All notifications, including sounds and vibrations, will be turned off for this application.
  7. Touch Back to manage the notification settings for more applications. Applications with blocking turned on are identified by the word Blocked under the application name.

Hide Sensitive Content

The Hide sensitive content option is only available for individual applications when you choose a Pattern, PIN, Password, or Fingerprint screen lock.

If a secure lock is set on your device, you can hide sensitive content from selected applications' lock screen notifications.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.
  2. Touch Settings.
  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.

    It may be necessary to touch the DEVICE tab and then touch Sounds and notifications.
