Getting notifications on your Android device is essential when it comes to receiving all the important emails and messages in time. But do you also need notifications from all your apps?
The more apps you have on your smartphone / tablet, the more notifications you will get and I am sure that there are cases when you are simply tired of all the annoying app notifications that keep coming all day long.

Manage Android Notifications on your Device:
If you device runs on Android 5.0, then you have a simple method to manage your notifications including setting up a priority list. You can even select specific days and times in which you only want to get priority notifications, so follow these simple steps:
- Enter into your phone’s settings;
- Choose ‘Sound & notification’;
- Then, select ‘Interruptions’;
- Once everything is set up you can toggle between the three notification profiles (none, priority & all) by pressing one of your Volume buttons.
If you want to completely disable some notifications you don’t need, the story is also very simple. You just have to use Google Device and to follow these steps:
- For the start, go to the Settings icon;
- Enter into the Device section of Settings;
- Tap Apps;
- On the Apps screen, scroll through the list of apps and touch the app for which you want to stop receiving notifications;
- The App info screen displays for the selected app, so all you have to do is to touch the Show notifications check box so there’s no check mark in the box;
- A dialog box displays making sure you really want to turn off notifications;
- Confirm your action by tapping OK;
- The Show notifications check box is now un-checked;
- Touch the Back button on the device three times to go back to the Home screen and that was all!
