Not getting notifications on your Galaxy S24? Here’s the fix

What you need to know

  • On the Galaxy S24, Samsung has disabled Notification Categories by default, which has affected how some users receive notifications.
  • You’ll have to go into settings to enable Notification Categories, then adjust notifications for individual apps.
  • The Samsung Galaxy S24 runs One UI 6.1 out of the box, which will eventually come to other Samsung phones.

Unlike some of the other folks here at Android Central, I don’t get my hands on every single phone that gets released. However, I am fortunate enough to at least test out some of the best Android phones launched over the course of the year. 

After picking up the Galaxy S24 Ultra on launch day, I began noticing that I simply wasn’t getting notifications for different apps. This obviously isn’t a big deal for some apps, but I wasn’t getting notified when someone sent me something in Messenger, and Gmail notifications were practically non-existent.
