Published

Samsung One UI 4.1 Adaptive brightness

The Android 13-based Samsung One UI 5.0 will bring a major and useful feature to your Galaxy device which is Notification permission. In order to send you notifications, apps will need you to give them your permission and you can say ‘no’ if you don’t want a particular app to send notification.

Whether it’s a notification for an update for the application, a chat, or any other information, app notifications on our smartphones are great for knowing if something new has happened to one of them, but it’s not necessary that every application’s notification is important.

We generally want our smartphones to notify us about social media, Gmail, missed calls, software updates, or sometimes about our subscribed YouTube channels. Whereas, notifications from other apps seem useless and disturbing.

Meanwhile, Samsung One UI 5.0 Notification permission feature will give you more control over your notifications. According to the Android 13 beta, apps targeting Android 13 must request notification permission from the user before posting notifications.

At this moment, there’s no more information about the feature. However, iOS has had a similar feature for years, and it’s a very useful way to make sure only certain apps send you notifications. It’s great to know that Google is planning to bring such a feature to Android.
