    In Nougat, we used to have the oneplus lab option (which we got by long pressing the settings gear ⛮ in the tiles), but after i updated to Oreo i don't see any such feature.

    Thanks in advance.

    I didn't get Oreo yet. But did you try the App Info for the specific app you want to change the setting for?
    On my Nexus 6p, each app had it's Heads Up Notification setting in App Info.

    The feature was completed in Oreo and has moved out of the lab (which was just 1+ version of System UI tuner),
    swipe the notification a bit and tap the Settings cog, then tap on the notification category and you will see the option for the old notification levels

    not all apps give you a notification category so you can't disable peeking/heads-up for most apps which is very annoying.

    From Oreo, it must be configured app by app, and not all apps support the notification priorities. However, I wanted something global, for all apps.
    After plenty of testing, I found a way to disable globally the Peek / Heads-Up notifications in Oreo. I wrote the answer in Android StackExchange: https://android.stackexchange.com/a/194059/129963 Basically, using root and an app, you can have a Quick Setting for enabling/disabling globally the Heads-Up.
