Pixel 3: Wake the Display when New Notifications Arrive
Well, Google has also built-in always-on display functionality on its devices and your new Pixel 3 is in the list too. Once enabled, you can have the display constantly show a clock, along with the date and the current weather for your location. Besides that, you can also see the battery percentage at the bottom of the screen and if the phone is charging, you see the time remaining to full charge here.
Google’s always-on display is not as customizable as Samsung’s – I know it and you have probably noticed that too in case of having the handset for at least a few days – but it’s still very functional and loved by users. Do you want though a bit more than this always-on display when it comes to notifications? At the moment, if you get a notification on your Google Pixel 3 handset, it is briefly shown and then turned into nothing more than an icon that stays on the screen.
If want the display to fully wake up when you get a new notification, this option can be found in the ambient display settings. I don’t know what you think of it, but I have one advice for you: the idea is that you should better make sure you’re not getting overwhelmed with notifications, just asyour wish could simplyend up draining your battery’s juice in a matter of no more than a few hours (you know how many notifications you normally receive, so think twice before deciding to go for one way or another).
I am sure that such an idea is far from tempting, but if you still want to try it out, here’s what you have to do:
How to Wake the Display when New Notifications Arrive:
- The very first thing that you have to do is to access Settings > Display;
- Now, you must enter into Advanced;
- Go to Ambient display;
- You may now turn on the option to Wake the display when new notifications arrive. If you ever change your mind, apply the same steps and turn off the option.
