Always On Display on the Galaxy Note 7 supports third-party app notifications


Last updated: August 8th, 2016 at 09:44 UTC+02:00

Samsung usually introduces new features with Galaxy S smartphones and then refines them on Galaxy Note smartphones. One such feature is the Always On Display mode that was introduced with the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Now, Samsung has released an improved version of the feature with the Galaxy Note 7.

The Galaxy Note 7 comes with Always On Display v1.7.12 pre-installed, and it supports third-party app notifications. Earlier, notifications from only stock apps like S Planner and Messages were allowed on Always On Display, and many consumers requested Samsung to allow third-party apps. It’s great to see that Samsung is listening to at least some requests from its customers.
