Customize Notifications for Android Apps

 Turn off Android notifications.

Adjust Notifications From Android Settings

For the first method, swipe down from the top of the screen (once or twice, depending on your device) and tap the gear icon to go to the Settings.

Next, select “Apps & Notifications” or simply “Notifications.”

Select "Apps & Notifications."

Tap “See All [Number] Apps” or “App Settings.”

Tap "See All Apps."

Find the app that you would like to customize notifications and select it.

Select the app to customize.

Now, select “Notifications.” Android 12+ devices don’t require this step.

Select "Notifications."

At the top, you’ll see the option to turn all notifications on or off, but underneath is where you’ll see all the notification channels. Toggle on or off any of the channels you’d like.

Toggle channels off or on.

To take it a step further, you can customize how these notifications are presented. Tap the notification channel name.

Select a channel name.

Here, you can decide whether you want notifications from this channel to ring or vibrate your phone, be silent, or pop up on the screen.

Adjust the notification appearance options.

Take Action From a Notification

What if a notification appears and you want to prevent more in the future? The second method allows you to take immediate action on a notification. Tap and hold the notification until a menu appears.

Long press the notification.

Now, select “Turn Off Notifications.” This will not turn off all notifications.

Select "Turn Off Notifications."

A menu will slide up with the corresponding notification channel highlighted. You can simply toggle it off.

Toggle off the channel.

Tap “Done” when you’re finished.

Tap "Done" to finish.

Now you will only get notifications for things you actually care about.
