Apps on your Fire tablet will send you notifications that pop up in the notification shade which can be helpful if you get a news update or message to respond to. Amazon’s Fire tablets run a customized version of Android called Fire OS. And, unlike apps on iOS, it doesn’t give you the option to turn down push notifications. Here is a look at how you can turn app notifications on or off.
Manage App Notifications on Amazon Fire Tablet
Like other recent versions of Android, you can see your notifications by swiping from the top of the screen down to display the notification shade.
To manage notifications, head to Settings > Sound & Notification > App Notifications. Note that all apps will be installed with the default to display notifications.
Next, scroll through the list of apps and tap the one you no longer want to see or hear notifications for. On the next screen, you can block the app’s notifications completely. Or, set it as a priority so it always appears at the top of your notification list.
The Amazon Fire tablet is meant to be an entertainment device. Still, you can get some productive things done but probably don’t want to be constantly reminded of emails or other work items. It’s also just plain annoying having a noisy device alerting you about every little thing.
There are other advantages of disabling app notifications, too. It will reduce the amount of bandwidth being used on your network, which is helpful in a busy household. And it can help improve the battery life of the tablet.
