Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus: How To Enable Flash Alert

When it comes to Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Plus and its notifications, you have plenty of built-in and custom options that you can try. From predefined ringtones to vibration patterns you didn’t even know of, it’s almost exciting to tackle all those features. Today, however, we’re going to talk about a rather out-of-the-box option, the so-called flash alert.

Basically, the flash alert will notify you of events such as new SMS, WhatsApp messages or even calls, all reported through a camera LED flash.

Rest assured, it’s not just going to be an isolated flash alert and you will not just have to hope that you will spot it at the right time. As long as you have an unread notification, the camera LED light will flash on your phone’s housing back at regular time frames.

If you like what you read so far, you must be curious on how you can enable the flash notification on Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. Five simple steps, that’s all it takes:

  1. Open the Settings from the App icon;
  2. Scroll down for the Accessibility option and tap on it;
  3. Select Hearing, under Accessibility;
  4. Select the option labeled as “Flash notification”;
  5. With the first tap, you have switched it from Off to On.


Now you can leave the menus and expect for your first notification to jump in. The camera LED won’t be late to flash regularly, reminding you to check the device.
