Tip of the Week: Get Your Dismissed Notifications Back in Android

Picture this scenario: you’re going about your day and get an important notification, only for that notification to, well, get cleared. You want to go back and check it so you don’t miss it. This is thankfully quite easy to do by viewing your Android notification history.

First, you’ll have to take a couple of steps to set it up.

Turn On Your Notification History for Android

Android has a feature for notification history which is hidden away in the settings. This feature gives you the ability to see a list of your notifications. It’s not active by default, so it’s time to turn it on. Follow this simple process:

  • Access your Settings either by swiping down on your homescreen to get to the integrated shortcut, or by navigating through your applications to find them.
  • Once there, access your Notification settings, and from there, Advanced settings.
  • You’ll then see Notification history. Tap it to access it.
  • Once you do, you’ll be presented with a deactivated switch. Turn the switch to On, and you’ll have a list of the notifications you recently dismissed!

What About Apple Devices?

Apple does not have an equivalent feature; once your Apple notifications have been acknowledged, they are cleared and gone for good.
