How to snooze notifications in Android 12

Once upon a time, snoozing a notification in Android was all about swiping the notification card left or right and hitting snooze. Not only was it a simple path to put these notifications on for a momentary rest, but it was also a configurable option. This method has been deprecated and a simpler but more restrictive option has been put in its place.

There may not be a long list of Android tablets, but you do have options.

But why would you even want to put off a notice? The answer to that is simple: you’re not ready to process the notification and you don’t want to miss this helpful reminder. Sure, you can always visit your notification history, but this is a viable option for only 24 hours. After that… Bye.

On the other hand, if you snooze a notification, it will fade from your notification shade, only to reappear again later to remind you, once again, to deal with that thing calling your attention. And given how easy it is to use Android’s notification snooze option, it’s a no-brainer. I’ve been making use of this feature for quite some time and it has greatly reduced the number of notifications I miss or forget.

So how do you snooze the Android 12 notification? I will explain on both Pixel 6 Pro and OnePlus 10 Pro.

Snooze notifications on Pixel 6 Pro

Notification snooze is enabled on most Pixel devices by default. The first thing you should do is locate the notification that will be snooped and click on the associated arrow pointing down (shape 1).

By default, notifications are not expanded, so you can’t see the snooze button.

Once the notification is expanded, tap the clock icon (Figure 2).

We now have access to the snooze icon for our notification.

Tap the tap icon to reveal the snooze drop-down menu (Figure 3).

The Snooze drop-down menu allows you to choose how long to snooze the notification.

Click on the dropdown menu (Figure 4) and choose from 1 hour (default), 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or 2 hours.

This is where you specify how long the notice will be delayed.

Although you are limited to the available options, you are not limited to the number of times you can snooze a notification. So if 2 hours is not enough, then snooze it again for 2 hours when the notification appears again.

Snooze notifications on OnePlus 10 Pro

Other Android devices (such as OnePlus 10 Pro) do not have snooze enabled by default. Fear not, it is very easy to operate. To do this, go to Settings > Notifications & status bar > More settings. in that window (Figure 5), tap the On/Off slider to allow notifications to snooze until it is on.

Enable notification snooze on OnePlus 10 Pro.

Once you enable snooze, close the Settings app and pull down the notification shade. If you swipe a notification to the left, you will now see a clock icon (Figure 6).

The snooze icon can now be accessed through your notifications.

At this point, the notification snooze is handled the same way as on the Pixel 6 Pro.

And that, my friends, is all there is to snooze notifications in Android 12. This is a great way to work around notifications temporarily to keep your shadow from cluttering, while at the same time ensuring you don’t miss anything important.
