OxygenOS How to disable pop up notifications

    Hi all,

    I received my OP6 yesterday and noticed, after coming from the OPO, that there doesn't seem to be a feature that disables head up notifications.

    What I mean is if I am on Instagram and receive a WhatsApp message, for example, I do not want that notification to drop from the top of the screen, I only want it to appear in my notifications when I pull the status bar down.

    Is this at all possible? If not, I find that extremely confusing and shocking that it is not a feature, after it was on the OPO.

    Thank you!
    Ravi

    In android oreo you can set the importance of each apps notifications. Go to settings, apps, and select the app you want, select notifications and select from urgent, high, medium or low. Pop up notifications should only appear on the urgent setting.

    heads up notification toggle has been removed. you can set the notification priority for most apps, including WhatsApp. set it to anything other than urgent to remove the 'peeking' notifications.

    Thanks for your answer! Unfortunately, I do not see the importance for apps such as Snapchat or Messenger. Why is this?

    Thank you! Does this work for all applications? As I do not see the ability to change it from urgent for apps such as Snapchat or Messenger.

    just hold onto the notification, or go to settings > apps > applist > whatsapp/instagram > notifications > importance > now set to your preference.

    all apps targetting the Android Oreo API have this, which means most popular apps will support it. you have to do it on a per app basis unfortunately.

    Of all the major social media apps such as Instagram and Messenger and Facebook, they are all targeting an older API then!

    Is there anywhere to know when they will update?

    I have none of these apps. but if you don't find the option to change the priority level, they are surely targeting an older API. may be that helps them learn more about you.

    only those companies would now when they will start targeting the newer API, or they could wait for Google to make it mandatory (I believe there is already a deadline given by Google).

    I am now, but I wasn't at the time of the screenshots. maybe because I use beta version of Instagram?

    Found it!!

    Step 1 :
    Long tap/go to notification settings on any app

    Step 2 : Under OTHER section, you see Silent Notifications

    Step 3 : Tap on the title but not the tick box

    Step 4 : Tap on Behavior and voila! set it according to your preference

    Hope this helped :)
