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

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.

Hello guys. I’m a note 4 owner. I use ac display a lot. It has this nice feature where if I tap a notification it expands it on the black screen. Here I see that I have to double tap to open the app. iS there any way of just expandind the notification?

Finally the news I was waiting for!
That´s so great. I´m sure they are going to release this as an update for s7 & s7 edge.
Support of 3rd Party Apps and what is even more exciting, the Always on Display will be interactive!

can somebody give a link to this version? If we install it on S7 we could have also other notifications.

EVERY app should work on both glance and always on

That it supports 3rd party apps does not mean that developers are actually making it happen.
