Change Flash Notifications on HTC One M8
Edited by Thor, Rushell, Eng
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to change the flash notification option on an HTC One M8.
To begin, turn the phone on by pressing the Power button located at the top of the phone. Once the phone has been activated, we'll see the lock screen.
To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and hold down until the two lock icons appear at the bottom of the screen. Then swipe up.
Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the Home screen, and at the bottom, we'll see several icons. What we want to do in this video is find the Settings menu. To do that, we need to open the Notification panel.
We can swipe the Notification panel down by pressing at the top of the screen, then holding, and swiping down.
Now, we can see that the Notification panel has appeared.
We need to tap on the icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen. There is a white cog icon, and this is the Settings icon.
Pressing on this icon will open our Settings menu, which has the word "Settings" at the top left-hand corner.
Scroll down to the "PHONE" section. The word "PHONE" will appear on the left side of the screen in the gray bar.
In that section, we are looking for "Sound & notification". Next to these words is a speaker icon with some sound waves emanating from it. Press down on this option, and it will bring us into the "Sound & notification" menu.
Now, scroll down to the "NOTIFICATION" section, which will show the word "NOTIFICATION" in the gray bar.
Press on the first option in that section that says, "Flash notifications". When we receive a notification on the HTC One M8, the screen will flash if this option is turned on. It will emit light, and it is a way of alerting and notifying us that we have received a notification. Obviously, if we have a sound effect set up, such as a ringtone or message notification tone, then we'll have an audio notification.
To set up flash notifications, we can choose between two options. "Always" means the screen will always flash when a notification is received.
Alternatively, we can choose for the screen to flash only "When screen is off". This implies that if the screen is on, we are probably looking at our phone. If the screen is off we are probably not looking at the phone. Choosing the section option will save some battery because it uses less energy by not flashing all the time, but only when the screen is off.
Just by pressing down on that option, it has selected it, and it under "Flash notifications", it says, "When screen is off".
If we press down on the section again, we can see that the option has been changed.
This concludes our tutorial on how to change the flash notification option on an HTC One M8.
