Hi, I just Pré ordered my S9 and I’m swapping from iPhone. I’ve seen loads of posts about people not getting lock screen notifications and all the fixes seem to involve the always on display setting being on. Is there a way you can get notifications on your lock screen without it and have the screen to wake for a short time like it does on iOS or do you have to use the aod feauture
Solved! Go to Solution.
After trying a million different suggestions, I have finally found a solution that works with Always On Display off. Go to: Settings > Lock Screen > Notifications (ensure turned on). Then press on Notifications to open more options. Select view style (brief, detailed or icon only) and ensure hide content is off. I am now able to see my notifications while my screen is locked.
I tried your solution, but not works for me. I've Always On Display off too. What 's you phone and Android version? Notifications of all apps are being shown or only those of the system's native app?
I have an S9 and am running Android pie (version 9). I'm getting notifications for non-native apps. I took a quick peak at my settings to see if there is something else that needs to be turned on/off but nothing is springing out at me.
I've a Galaxy S7 with Android Oreo. I believe that not exists a big difference between both versions, but in my case the Whatsapp notification for example is not working.
In first image you can see the Notifications option on.
In second and third images the options for notifications, defined like you do.
The option "Exibir notificações de" in third picture shows a list with all apps (last picture) where WhatsApp for example has all options on.
But when a message comes from WhatsApp with screen blocked the screen not turns on, only a message sound is listened.
How can you actually hide content for all apps besides calendar? I could not find out how you can specifically choose which apps to be hidden and which ones to be visible.
On the Apple, the notifications display for a period of time and are easy to read. On the S9/android they pop up for about 1-2 seconds and the screen locks again almost as if the phone thinks the battery is going to run out of charge. There is no setting for duration of the popups so therefore it is pretty much useless without having to unlock you phone. The Apple also will display the last few notifications simply by picking it up. One of the many anoying features of the overpriced S9
