Changing the App Notifications on Your Galaxy Tab E 8.0

You can control which apps 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.   

  4. Touch Application notifications.   

  5. Touch an app whose notification priority you want to change.   

  6. Touch the slider next to Set as priority to turn it on. Notifications from this app 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 apps. Apps with the priority setting turned on are identified by the words Set as priority under the app 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 Gmail™ notifications, your device will not display a notification and will not play a sound or vibrate when you receive notifications from Gmail.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.   

  4. Touch App notifications.

  7. Touch Back to manage the notification settings for more applications. Applications with notification blocking turned on are identified by the word Blocked under the application name.   

Hide Content on Lock Screen

This option will only display when Notifications on lock screen is set to Show content. If Notifications on lock screen is set to Hide content or Do not show notifications, lock screen notification content will be automatically hidden for all apps.

Prevent your device from displaying notification content for specific apps when your device is locked.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.   

  2. Touch Settings.   

  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.
