View and manage mobile notifications on your PC

On your PC:

  • In the Your Phone app, go to Notifications. If you haven't set this feature up yet, you'll be prompted to. After your finish setup and provide permission on your Android device, notifications from your Android device will appear on your PC.

Some notifications will have additional actions available for you, like replying directly to messages or snoozing an alarm. Notifications you delete on your PC will also be deleted on your Android device. 

If you encounter issues while using notifications, these troubleshooting tips may help. 

Select which notifications you want to see

Once you’ve started receiving notifications, then you can choose which apps you’d like to see notifications from.

On your PC:

  1. Open the Your Phone app and go to Notifications.

  2. Select Customize.The Settings page will appear.

  3. Under Choose which apps I get notifications from, you’ll see a list of all the apps that have sent notifications to your PC. If an app hasn’t sent a notification yet, then it won’t appear here.

  4. For any app in the list, you can turn notifications Off or On.

Can I expect to see all my notifications?

Apart from notifications that can't be dismissed on your Android device, all notifications will be displayed on your PC.

Dismiss notifications

Dismissing a notification on your PC also removes it from your Android device (and vice-versa).

On your PC:

  • Dismiss notifications by pressing the X next to each notification in the list. You can also dismiss all notifications at once by selecting Clear All.
