Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Set Application Notifications as Priority in Android 5.0.1 Lollipop

By default, notifications(sound and vibration) of all apps will be turned off when Do not disturb mode is enabled. But, if needed, you can set app notifications as priority to allow notifications of the app as exceptions, in other words, your phone will play a sound and/or vibrate when a notification of the app that you have set its notifications as priority arrives even when your phone is in Do not disturb mode.

How to set notifications of an app as priority?
As the example, we'll set Gmail app notifications as priority so that your phone will play a sound and/or vibrate when an account in your Gmail app receives a new email message even when Do not disturb mode is enabled. Use the following steps to do so:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notifications panel and then tap at the top right to go to the settings menu.
  2. With the settings menu is displayed in grid view, scroll down to the Sound and display section and then tap Sounds and notifications .
  3. Scroll the screen to the very bottom.
  4. Tap App notifications.
  5. Scroll down to find Gmail app, and then tap it.
  6. Slide the ON/OFF switch next to Priority to the right to enable this option. The switch turns green when it's enabled.
  7. Gmail app notifications has been set as priority.

As a note, in Apps notifications menu, all apps with notifications set as priority will be labelled with Priority under the app name.
