Do you long for the days when Android phones boasted a notification LED on the front of the device? Is that the case, and if so, do you want it on your present Android phone?
A virtual notification LED, it turns out, will be available on Android devices in 2022. The aodNotify software and a new Samsung, OnePlus, or Google device are needed for this to operate.
Let’s have a look at aodNotify to learn more about its functionality and how to set up a notification LED on your Android device.
AodNotify: what is it?
aodNotify is an Android app that mimics the behavior of a physical LED notification light. It’s simple to operate and works with devices from Samsung, OnePlus, and Google.
Customization options in aodNotify include displaying the notification light around the camera cutout or the screen boundaries, as well as selecting from a variety of different light style options.
Additionally, aodNotify Pro can be purchased to gain access to additional configuration settings. The ability to place an LED dot in the status bar to indicate new notifications is probably the most useful of these.
Functions of aodNotify
aodNotify may seem basic at first glance, but it actually packs quite a punch. Some of aodNotify’s best characteristics are as follows.
Camera cutout, screen edge, and LED dot are just a few of the different types of alert indicators.
Color-coded alerts for certain programs and people
Notification previewed during intervals and at night to conserve battery life
Reduced battery drain
Battery life/charging status indicator

After the app has been successfully installed, select Next from the app’s welcome screen. Now, there is a checklist you must go through before you can turn on aodNotify and begin using it.
The items on this checklist and how to complete them are as follows:
To choose apps
The first step in using the aodNotify notification light is to choose which apps have access to it. To customize the apps you get alerts for, use the Select apps button.
Access to Notifications
Then, for aodNotify to deliver you alerts, it must have entry to your device’s notifications. Allow aodNotify to access system notifications by tapping the Notification access button.
Turn on AOD
Always-on display (AOD) is required for aodNotify to function properly. To activate the AOD feature, go to the aodNotify checklist, tap “Enable AOD,” and then go to your device’s settings.
Create digital art
Akin to an Android permission, “Draw on screen” enables an app to see whatever is happening on top of other apps on the device’s screen. Because of its focus on alerts, aodNotify need this data to do its job. To grant aodNotify full access to your device, select Draw on screen from the checklist and then turn on the corresponding option on the following screen.
When you’ve finished checking everything off the list, click the Done! button.
choices for aodNotify
Once you’ve set up aodNotify, whenever time a notification comes in on your phone, the notification light will flash. These warnings will be displayed using the notification light’s standard settings (i.e. font, color, size, etc.).
How to Limit Apps That Trigger the Light Notification
While aodNotify’s initial setup allows you to choose which apps can trigger the device’s notification light, you can always change this setting at a later time using the following procedure:
On the main screen of aodNotify, tap Notifications.
Select the apps you want to get notifications for by tapping Apps in the Notifications menu.
How to Program a Battery to Turn On a Light
In addition to alerting you when new app notifications arrive, aodNotify may also notify you when the battery is charging, is full, or is about to drop below 15%.
To activate any of these conditions, do as follows:
From the main menu, click Notifications, and then pick Battery from the list.
To activate a trigger, simply flip the switch that’s next to it. (Some triggers may require aodNotify Pro, which may be purchased separately.)
Setting Up Your aodNotify Alert Lamp for Optimal Visibility
With aodNotify, you can alter the appearance of the alert lamp to suit your needs by changing its color, size, and motion effects.
Modify the Appearance of the Alert Light
Choose the Notification light option on the main screen.
To change the appearance of your screen, go to Appearance > Style and then click the radio option next to the desired Style.
The camera’s edge, the screen’s edge, and the LED Dot (in the Pro edition) are all selectable settings. Screen edges should be used if your device doesn’t have a notch or cutout for the camera, while Camera edges should be used if your device does.
Screen off settings provide a radio button you can use to keep the notification light on even when the screen is turned off. The location of the alert light can also be determined by a fingerprint sensor.
Variable Animation Effects
Effects can be found in Notification light.
To use an effect, click its corresponding radio button. Each effect has a preview button you may tap to see a preview.
The Speed slider may be found under the Effect settings at the very bottom. Again, the free version is restricted in terms of effects.
The Size of the Alert Lamp Can Be Modified.
On the next screen, select Dimensions after choosing the Notification light.
Thicken or thin the alert light by dragging the slider under Camera edge.
Adjust the Offset sliders found under Camera edge – Notification light if the light is blocking a status bar item. Just right.
The Notification Light’s Color Settings
With aodNotify, you may choose the hue of your device’s alert LED. Here’s the procedure:
On the main screen of aodNotify, click Colors.
Select the App colors tab to give each app its own unique hue.
Then, if you’ve activated battery events, you can assign a unique color to each one by tapping on Battery colors.
In a similar vein, you may customize the text color of messages sent from individual people by selecting the option to do so under the Contact colors menu.
Additionally, aodNotify allows you to set the default color of the alert’s light. Select a color by tapping the General menu and then Default color. (If you’re using aodNotify Pro, choose Auto color to have the light change color mechanically based on the app icon.)
Use aodNotify in a New Way to Receive Alerts
Whether you have a Samsung, OnePlus, or Google phone, aodNotify will allow you to customize your alert settings. A smartphone’s notification light now illuminates instead of making a noise or vibrating to alert you to new alerts. In addition, it notifies you of occurrences like low battery status, which is really helpful.
Although we’ve made an effort to cover everything you need to know to get started with aodNotify, there are a few settings we haven’t gone over. Check out these settings to find the perfect hue for your alert button.
