How to Add Text Notification Preference/Contacts to Moto G6

2021-04-08, 15:19 PM

Hello,

 

I have a quick question - how to I add/change notification preferences to various text message contacts. What I mean is - I have several people that I want there to be no notification when they send a text, and others that I want both a sound and a visual notification on the screen, plus an icon on my sleep screen as well. I can't seem to find where I can add people to that notification list and adjust the type of notification that I get.

 

Thanks for any help!

TN

OK - I found this:

 

Messages>Click on the contact you want, and then in the three dots, click on Details.

Then in Details, click Notifications.

Click Importance and there you can choose the level you want for that specific contact.

 

I had tried to find a way to add those contacts to the list I see in the Notifications area under the Message App settings - some are listed there, and some not, but I may be missing something.

 

In any case - the above does what I want - I can change the level so that's fine.

 

Thanks!

Hi TN2020

 

Thanks for posting. I just so your post. I'm thinking of setting the text notification to silent from each of those contacts you don't want to get sound notification when they text you. Can you share what works for you, in case other users might ask the same question?

 

Best regards,
