How To Enable Double Tap Wakeup And Sleep On Galaxy S8 And Galaxy S8 Plus?
With every new smartphone released by Samsung, the accessibility features keep surprising us, though not necessarily in the best possible way. For instance, with Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, everyone was anxiously expecting for the double tap that was supposed to wake up or send to sleep the display of the device. Obviously, it didn’t happen what users were expecting, but the manufacturer introduced the Always on Display.
Something designed to show you the most commonly accessed information from a smartphone – time, date, and notifications – constantly on the display, with the screen turned off. Kind of like an attempt to spare its users from having to tap on the display at all…
Now, whether you take what you get and keep your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus as it is or you prefer to make a change, you will want to know that there are actually options that allow you to enable such a feature.
To enable double tap wake up on your smartphone…
You will have to install one of the many third-party apps that do just that. The Google Play Store offers you a couple of apps, all of them 100% functional, specifically designed to wake up or to activate the sleep function on your display, whenever you double tap on it.
As you can suspect, permanently running such an app will take up some extra battery, but it can never hurt to test this feature on your Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus. You can always delete the app if you’re not happy with it.
