How To Snooze Notifications In Android 8

For most of us the last task of the day before hitting the bed is to set the alarm for the coming day. However, most of us hit the snooze button at least a few times before dragging ourselves out of the cosy realms of the bed. Surprisingly, it’s in these few minutes between the two snoozes that we get the best sleep.

To cut the long story short, the snooze option is an important feature of our lives. Which is why in this article we will be discussing about the latest feature of Android 8, Snooze Notifications. Thus from now on when needed you can snooze the notifications on your phone.

What is the Benefit Of Snoozing the Notification?

There is no doubt that notifications are a vital part of our smartphones. A quick view keeps us updated about our messages, mails, news etc. However, when we need some quiet time, the same notifications can be a menace.

To resolve this issue, Google in its latest release of Android version 8, provides us with an option to snooze notifications. This gives you your required time off from your phones.

So, without further delay let’s learn how to snooze notifications in the new Android 8.

How to Get Started

To implement this feature your phone needs to have the latest version of Android installed on it.

To get started you need to slightly slide the notification tab towards the right. If you completely slide the notification then it will disappear from the notification bar.

  • When you slide the notification you will find a Clock icon along with Settings icon. Tap on the clock icon.

         You will get the Snooze menu option. By default, it is set to 1 hour, however, you can easily change it as per your requirement.
