How do I change the application notifications on my Samsung Galaxy View?

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

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 App notifications.

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

  6. Touch the slider OFF 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 Gmail™ notifications, your device will not display a notification and will not play a sound when you receive notifications from Gmail.

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch Settings.

  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.

  4. Touch App notifications.

  5. Touch an application whose notifications you want to block.

  6. Touch the slider OFF next to Block notifications to turn ON notification blocking. 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 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 is automatically hidden for all applications.

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

  1. From the Home screen, touch Apps.

  2. Touch Settings.

  3. Touch Sounds and notifications.

  4. Touch the application from which you want to hide notification content.

  5. Touch the slider OFF next to Hide content on lock screen to turn ON notification content blocking. 

  6. Touch Back to manage the notification settings for more applications. Applications with notification content hidden are identified by the words Hide content on lock screen under the application name.
