Oreo is the most anticipated and awaited Android operating system by far. It promises to bring several exciting enhancements and some cool features to your device. Google has already made the release public on select devices. And, it is expected that the rollout for all the eligible devices will happen very soon.
Android Oreo’s list of new features is pretty impressive. But, not all the features are going to be conspicuous.

There is a good chance you may have already heard of Oreo’s Notification Channels and custom notification categories for apps.

Channel system is innovative but it may take some doing to get used to it. Some may even find it a bit vexing. Thankfully, you can switch off a channel for an app quite easily. All you need to do is long press the notification from the app and on the next screen move the toggle to the right for that channel. If you would like to see the list of all the channels for an app, simply press “All Categories.” Here, you can disable all the channels you don’t want to see the notifications for (and also enable the channels if you wish to restore notifications).

Simply navigate to Settings >> Apps & notifications >> App info. Select the app you would like to customize the notifications for. You can choose one of the following priority options:
