When OnePlus announced the 5T, many people were disappointed about the fact that it wasn’t shipping with Android Oreo. To solve this issue, OnePlus quickly introduced an open beta for the handset and that is how OnePlus 5T is also included in that list of devices that have Android Oreo. Today I want to tell you more about the new notification snoozing feature in Google’s Android 8.0 Oreo release.
Well, with Android 8.0, you have the possibility to “triage” your notification panel every time you open it — just like you normally do with your inbox. If there’s something that requires your attention right away, you know what you have to do.
When a new message comes through, but doesn’t require any action and you don’t have time to deal with it, just swipe to the right. And if something demands a response or some other form of attention that you simply can’t provide immediately, all you must do is to tap the clock icon to snooze the notification.
This will make the message go away for no less than 15 minutes, then it will come right back on your OnePlus 5T Oreo running device when the time is up. You can also change the snooze length right after you’ve snoozed a notification. To be more specific, you can snooze it for 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, as well as no less than 2 hours.
Even if Android 8.0’s notification snoozing system is limited (I still have in mind the fact with Inbox, when you snooze an email, you can choose from a various default time options such as “Later today,” “Tomorrow,” “This weekend,” or “Next week” or that you can also specify any time and date or even any physical location that makes sense as a trigger for your item to reappear), it’s still an interesting start. I don’t know how powerful Android’s notification snoozing system will get in time, yet I am sure of the fact that more changes will be made and I will keep an eye on all of them. You should do the same with us since we are always working to keep you updated!
