Have you ever missed a call or text because you were listening to music or your phone was accidentally left in silent mode?
Did you know Android users can enable the LED light (the same light used for the camera flash and flashlight) on their device to visually alert them to incoming calls, texts, or email—even if the phone is in silent mode?
- Open the Settings app.
- Tap “Device.”
- Tap “Accessibility.”
- Tap the box next to “Flash Notification.”
It’s that easy! Now your camera light will blink when you receive a notification.
Please note: If your device doesn’t have this option, you can download a free app from the Google Play Store:
- Open the Google Play Store app.
- Search for and install “Flash Alerts.”
- Open the app.
- Tap “ON” to enable flash alerts for incoming calls, text messages, or both.
That’s it! Your device’s LED flash will light up every time you receive a call or text. For our iPhone users, we’ll show you how to do the same in next week’s blog.
