LED flashes are supposed to signal unread notifications on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus. Whenever you’ve been away from your smartphone or kept it on Silence for a while, you can see if you missed anything from a simple glance. Some users appreciate it, while others don’t really see any use in it.
If you want to learn how to disable LED notifications on Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ Plus, follow these steps:
- Turn on the smartphone;
- Head to the Home screen;
- Open the general Menu;
- Open the Settings section;
- Tap on Sound & Notifications;
- Browse until you find the LED Indicator option;
- Tap on the toggle to disable this option.
Why would you want to give up on an apparently useful feature? Perhaps because you’re getting a lot of messages all the time. And having those different lights blinking constantly could be annoying or at least tiring. Or perhaps you want to keep your notifications and messages private, without anyone working close to you knowing when you’ve got a text or something else happened on your smartphone.
Reasons are various and you are entitled to use your Samsung Galaxy S8 or Samsung Galaxy S8+ Plus however you see fit. That’s why you have this option at hand and that’s why Samsung allowed you to turn it On or Off, depending on context. The only reason of discontent, on this chapter, is that you’re not allowed to deactivate LED signals for particular types of notifications. You either keep it for all, or remove it from all.
So, today you might not need it, tomorrow it could be pretty useful. No matter the context, now you know how to activate or deactivate this feature.
