Be on the lookout for part II of our Android notification blog, where we’ll show you how to set specific apps to notify you only when you want them to. We’ll also explore which notification icons are different for Android KitKat. Meanwhile, for tips on how to interact with the notifications you do receive now, be sure to jump over to our Community for in-depth instructions. Enjoy!
