Notifications peeking option

Re: Notifications peeking option


I figured out meanwhile that if you enable Power Notifications via Settings -> System UI Tuner -> Other -> Power Notification Controls -> Enable

then you have the option to set the levels (detailed in the settings above) for each and every app in Settings -> Apps -> tap on the App -> Notifications -> tap on the "A" sign at the top.

If the app is in Auto mode, the "A" sign is on. If you tap it, you get to manual and you can move the slider to the desired position. This way you can enable peaking all the way long for all apps that you want.


The only issue is, i figured, that whenever notifications are jamming (more than one comes in) you see only the last one, because they are popping on top of each other making it impossible to read the first as the second just pops on top of it immediately. Not like in iPhone where you have a small amount of time to read the first before the second jumps onto.

In small steps, but Android is getting there Slightly smiling Face


The opposite way, you can turn all notification peeks off of course...


Hope this helps to somebody...

Re: Notifications peeking option

I can't find the system ui tuner option you mentioned 


I want to disable only peeking but it should vibrate and play sound
