Moto G4 Notification Settings: Unable to Turn Vibrate Off for Specific Apps

2016-12-08, 5:56 AM

I have an app that I want to send me push notifications and show up silently on my lock screen, instead of vibrating. 

 

In app notification settings, there are only a few choices, and there is no toggle for vibrate.

 

How do I turn the vibrate off for an app on my G4?

Each app has its own settings for this. Check out sms and email. If your app is missing this, contact the app developer. 

 

You dont mention the app.

Thanks for the response!

 

What do you mean by checking sms and email? I'm not sure how to do that.

 

Also, the app is called TopBuzz.

Just that if you look in your sms and email apps you will see that they have their own settings for notification sounds and vibration.

I'm sorry, I dont understand. How do I search for SMS and email apps? I didn't know there were categories for the apps, all i know is App Notifications.

No - inside each app it has its own settings. If you open email app, go tomits settings, you would see independent options for sound and vibrate.

 

I was just providing an example.

Ah yes, I have tried that and there is no option to turn on/off vibrate. 

 

So, I should contact the developer?

That is really the only option I can think of. There is no global vibrate setting on the phone for notifications.

Okay, I actually contacted them last night and they said, "Sorry, we can't fix that technical problem with your phone". 

 

So, it looks like there is no way to turn off vibrate.

 

However, what's killing me is when I was messing around with my Moto G4 yesterday, doing a lot of settings adjustments, especially with my GMail, I swear I came across a vibrate toggle button for TopBuzz. And I left it on! Lol I wasn't thinking. 

 

And now, after a couple hours of trying to retrace my steps and find that bleeping button, I've come up empty.

My core issue is that I want an app to silently push me notifications at least once every couple hours that show up on my lock screen, Because, I have the Amazon Prime version. And when there is at least one non-Amazon notification on the lock screen, the Advert from Amazon Prime switches from a full screen picture to a small, similar sized notification, and I can see my personalized wallpaper in the background. It's much more aesthetically pleasing. 

 

Any thoughts, advice, or ideas on this issue?
