Samsung’s One UI 6.1 software is full of helpful features like this, including the ability to organize the app drawer alphabetically, the new Circle to Search function, and returning your power button to actually being a power button instead of opening up the dreaded Bixby assistant. While flash notifications aren’t for everyone, it would be helpful if Samsung put the toggle for them in the Quick Settings panel instead of forcing users to dig into the Settings app.
It just takes a few seconds to enable flash notifications on your Galaxy S24, Galaxy S24+, and Galaxy S24 Ultra, so you never miss an alert again. If video tutorials aren’t your thing, we have the step-by-step written guide below.
First, open up the Settings app on your Galaxy S24.
You’ll then need to tap on the Accessibility section.
Tap on Flash Notification
Press the toggle to enable Camera Flash Notification
If it’s a specific app such as WhatsApp that you are waiting for a message from, you can choose only to receive a flash notification from that one app. Or however many apps as you please.
As a bonus step, you can also enable Screen Flash notifications, illuminating the display to alert you of a notification. It’s a redundant feature, as you’ll need to have the display facing upwards, which means you’ll see the notification alert on the lock screen anyway. Still, it’s perhaps more subtle than having an alert showing you’ve received a message, particularly if you are under supervision.
And that’s how to enable flash notifications on your Galaxy S24 smartphone. As promised, it’s really quick and simple to do, and you can even narrow the alerts down to a specific app or number of apps if necessary.
Whether customizing the software experience on your Galaxy S24, protecting it with the best cases available, or even getting a new wireless charger, we’ve got tips and guides to show you how to make the most of your handset.
