The Facebook app finally supports Android’s notification channels

Monday, August 27th, 2018

Since 8.0 Oreo, Android has had what's called notification channels, a way to filter notifications from apps based on the type of activity each notification is alerting you to. Not all apps support the feature, though. Until recently, Facebook — which notifies you when you get a comment, when you're tagged in something, when it's someone's birthday, et cetera — was one such app. Now, though, you can choose only to receive the notifications you care about.

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

The Google app just leapt up to version 8.0 late last night, but despite the shiny new version number, most things are looking about the same. A new screen has been added for "Your People," while a teardown tells us that it will be possible to set regular schedules to run custom routines (when they launch), the Google Lens will be able to switch to the front-facing selfie camera, and more.

Twitter quietly added Notification Channel support to its Android app

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

One of the new features in Android 8.0 Oreo was Notification Channels. This gives users the ability to toggle categories of app notifications from the Android settings. WhatsApp was the latest high-profile app to add support for the feature, and now it appears Twitter is joining the club.

To be clear, we aren't sure when Twitter added Notification Channels, because there was no announcement or changelog update. We tested different versions of the app, all the way back to v7.15.0 from September of last year, and all of those updates included Notification Channels.
