Either because you want to disconnect or because you are going to lend your phone to someone, maybe you want to deactivate the emergent notifications. Almost all applications send us notifications of all kinds and with the latest versions of Android it is easier to choose what appears and what does not. But if you want to disable the emergent notifications, we tell you how to do it.
The current notifications are better than we had a while ago and even allow us to respond without opening the app, directly from the notification. But if you do not like them and you want to deactivate them, you can do it.
As we say, you can deactivate the notifications of each application from Settings> Applications. Each of them has a “Notifications” section that you can activate or deactivate. If you do not want the stores to bother you on a Saturday morning or Glovo or Just Eat alerts, this is a good option.
But if you want to see notifications but not the box on the top of the phone that bothers when you see something or that appears when you borrowed the phone, you can also uninstall from your mobile phone. Although, yes, you will need to have a computer at hand.
As they tell from Andro4All, install the ADB drivers from Google on your computer. When you already have a folder called platform tolos installed in the ‘Program Files’ hard drive folder, you can start configuring notifications.
As explained by the aforementioned medium, just go to the mentioned folder (Platform Tools), right click and open a command window in which you must write: ADB Devices. A pop-up window that you have to accept appears, type the command ” adb Shell settings set global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0 ” and your mobile phone would be ready.
Once followed step by step this process will have disabled the notification banners. It is expensive and it is not worth it to do it for just a little while, but if you want to have it forever. Once you want to get back to having pop-up notifications, you just have to follow the same process but change the final ‘0’ to a ‘1’ and they will be activated again.
If you want to turn them off only from WhatsApp it ‘s much easier because you’ll just have to go to the app’s settings. You can choose to have pop-up notifications appear when the screen is on, always, when the screen is off or never. A very useful feature if this is the application you want to control and do not care so much about the others installed on your mobile.
