There are many settings for notifications on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or Galaxy S9 Plus. This can vary from predefined ringtones to vibration patterns that many users don't know anything about.
In this article we will talk about a not so familiar feature, the flash notification. The function notifies you via the camera LED flash when events occur on your phone, such as a new SMS, WhatsApp message or even calls.
The flash lights on the camera LED on the back of your phone's housing glow in regular time windows when there is an unread notification.
You can enable flash notification on the Samsung Galaxy S9 as follows:
Use camera LED flash for incoming notifications
- To do this, first open the App menu and then open the settings.
- Scroll down until you see the "Input help" menu item and then select it.
