Change the App Notifications on Your Galaxy Tab A (New)

Don't lose your important message notifications in massive cluster of never ending email and app notifications. You can adjust the notification settings for each one of your apps for a clean and organized notification panel.

Block App Notifications

If you're sick of dealing with constant alerts from apps you hardly use, block the app from sending you notifications. Pick and choose which apps are allowed to send you notifications for total control over your phone.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Notifications.   

  3. Touch ADVANCED.  

  4. Touch the app you want to block.  

  5. To block notifications, touch the slider next to Allow notifications. All notifications, including sounds and vibrations will be turned off for this app.  

Set App Notifications as Priority

When you have a hectic schedule, you want to make sure you don't miss alerts such as appointments and meetings you set in the Calendar app. You can set individual apps as priority so those notifications will show at the top of the Notification Panel, even when Do Not Disturb mode is enabled. Never miss an appointment again!

When your notification has been set to priority, the notifications will be displayed on your tablet at all times, even if the Do not disturb feature is turned on.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.  

  2. Touch Search, and then search for and select Notifications.    

  3. Touch ADVANCED.  

  4. Touch the app you want to set as priority.  

  5. To set the app's notifications as priority, touch the slider next to Set as priority. Notifications from this app will appear at the top of the Notification Panel when Do not disturb is enabled.
