If you have a Samsung smartphone such as Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8+ Plus, you’re probably running all kinds of apps on it. The more software you’re dealing with, the more notifications you will receive, both from the third-party apps and from the system.
Now, if you haven’t accessed the device in a little while, you are probably anxious to see what you missed. Lucky for you, Samsung has put together this special Notification center where it collects all the notifications in one place.
Moreover, the list of previews of the most recent notifications is accessible through a simple swipe on the display. The status bar will extend to include these notifications and you can skim them or decide to read them all on the spot.
How to view notifications on Galaxy S8 and S8+ Plus
- Turn on your device;
- Access the Home screen;
- Swipe down to open the status bar and access the notification section;
- Look at all the notifications listed in there;
- Tap on a specific notification to launch the app from where you received it.
As you will notice soon enough, the moment you tap on a specific notification, if you get back to the status bar, it will no longer be available in there.
