I just switched from Apple and I want my notifications to pop up and light up on my phone while the screen is not on. Is this not possible with Android?? I think anyone that's used Apple knows what I'm talking about. For now, all I have is the always on display turned on and an icon appears but that's it. If it's not possible to have the notifications turn my screen on, is there another trick to make this more bearable?
Propably should have clarified by " not receiving notifications on the lock screen"
I am refering to the case where ,you have your phone screen turned off /locked and someone messages you or you receives an email or a notifications whatsoever and the screen wakes up and temporary shows the one or many notifications you have received (any iphone user gets what i am talking about).
I have resulted to turning off security on lock screen so that i can push the power button from time to time, either when i think i heard the device vibrate or make a sound, just to check my pop up notifications.
Still havent solved it and i am reading that its the samsung way of building the OS so that one's messages can't be seen except by the owner of the device.
What if i want to choose to let the notifications wake up my screen ,do i have that choice and how?
Frustrating to write about it as you all reading about this. Just cant get my head around it, something so simple and secondary in the ios.
Hmm... You are looking for Pop Up Notifications.
Well, in that case you have to configure it in the App Notificacions Settings. Not all Apps have Pop Up Notifications, but messaging apps like Whatsapp have it. In Whatsapp, go to Settings>Notifications and select an option in Pop Up Notification, either On Screen On, Screen Off or Both.
That should wake up the phone screen with the message at glance, with option to also reply.
Try that and let me know.
