Android 11 introduced the “Bubble” feature for apps like Facebook Messenger’s “Chat Heads”. The feature is enabled by default but you can disable it easily through the “Settings” of your device.
The notification bubble could interrupt your current activity and can be really annoying at the moment. In this guide, we will show you how to disable the notifications bubble for specific apps on Android.
Disable Notification Bubble for Specific Apps on Android
Follow the steps mentioned below to learn how you can do it:
Swipe down from the top of the screen to open the device “Settings”. The settings icon looks like a gear, tap on it to open it. You can also open the “Settings” by manually finding the app in your device.
Scroll down the “Settings” and select “Apps & Notifications”.
Select “See all (number of apps on your device) apps” at the top of the screen.
Tap on the app’s name you want to disable the notification bubble for.
Select “Notifications” from the app options.
Next, tap on “Bubbles”.
Change the setting to “Nothing can bubble” to disable the feature.
In this way, the notification bubble feature for that particular app will be disabled. You can turn it back on anytime you want by following the same steps mentioned above and choosing “All conversations can bubble” instead of the “Nothing can bubble” option.
