For those who have purchased the latest flagship phone of Samsung which is the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus, you might have noticed the feature called Upday. This is an application that is used by millions of Samsung users, so unless you don’t own one, you probably won’t have heard of it – yet. The sole purpose of Upday is to let their users catch up with the latest news.
Upday is the rival of Apple News. The news and stories in this app are ranked by the importance and as you use this app over time, it can determine and learn what kind of headline you’re interested in and adapts to it accordingly. Samsung has employed a team for this feature which consists a team of editors who are in charge with featuring stories or send push alerts to the users if there’s an important breaking news.
Since it sends push notifications on your Samsung Galaxy S9, not all users are finding this app very useful and turns out to be annoying in some way.
We can’t hide the fact that some users really find the Upday notifications annoying and prefers to just disable all the things from Upday that pops up in the status bar. So if you’re one of those people who don’t find this app really useful and who wants to disable it, follow the guide below to learn how.
Switch Off Upday Notifications
- Switch on your Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus
- Launch the Upday app first from the Home screen
- Tap on the MORE button located in the upper right part of the screen
- Then select the Settings from the menu
- Tap on Notifications entry from the Upday settings
- Tap on the toggle switch beside Notifications to deactivate it and go back now to the menu
That’s everything you need to know about the Upday app and how to access the settings if you want to enable or disable its notification that keeps on popping on the screen. No matter what news is in there now, you won’t receive any notifications again and even the push notifications on your Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus status bar again.
Just a little information, you can keep your Upday notifications disabled but you can still browse for news on the Upday widget. You’ll still be able to enjoy the messages and update notifications but only through the widget. You can place the widget on the Galaxy S9 home screen to have an easier access.
