Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge: How to Customise Application Notification Settings in Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

If you have updated your Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, you'll be allowed to customise notification settings for each app in your phone. You can allow or block notifications of an app, set an app as priority so that its notifications can still be received when the Do not disturb mode is enabled, set your phone to show notification previews of an app in pop-up at the top of the screen so that you won't miss any notification of that app even when you're using your phone to do other activity, set your phone to hide notifications of an app on the lock screen to prevent unauthorised people from reading it when the screen is locked, or set your phone to show notifications of an app on the lock screen with or without its content so you can easily know when you have ones when the screen is locked.


How to customise notification settings of an app?
As the example, we'll customise notification settings of the S Health app by using the following steps:
  1. On any screen, swipe down the top of the screen to open up the notification panel and then tap to go to the settings menu.
  2. Scroll down the screen to find Notifications and then tap it. By default, all apps notifications are enabled or allowed so you'll be notified when you receive new ones.
  3. Tap Advanced at the top right to customise notification settings of each app.
  4. Scroll down the screen to find S Health app and then tap it.
  5. Here, you'll be provided with the following options:
    • Allow notifications(this option is enabled by default): tap the ON/OFF switch next to this option to enable or disable it. When the switch turns blue , means the notifications of the selected app is allowed and you'll be notified when you receive new ones. When the switch turns gray , means the notification of the selected app is blocked and you won't be notified when you receive new ones.
    • Set as priority: tap the ON/OFF switch next to this option to enable or disable it. When the switch turns blue , means the selected app has been set as priority so that you will be notified when you receive notifications from the selected app while the Do not disturb mode is enabled.
    • Previews in pop-ups: tap the ON/OFF switch next to this option to enable or disable it. When the switch turns blue , means your phone will show notification previews from the selected app in pop-up at the top of the screen.
    • Hide on lock screen: tap the ON/OFF switch next to this option to enable or disable it. When the switch turns blue , means this option is enabled and your phone will hide notifications from the selected app when the screen is locked. When the switch turns gray , means this option is disabled and your phone will show notifications from the selected app on the lock screen.
    • Hide content on lock screen(this option is available when the Hide on lock screen option is disabled): tap the ON/OFF switch next to this option to enable or disable it. When the switch turns blue , means this option is enabled and your phone will show notifications from the selected app on the lock screen without displaying its content. When the switch turns gray , means this option is disabled and your phone will show notifications from the selected app and its contents on the lock screen.
