DynamicNotifications, formerly titled ActiveNotifications, is an app that sets out to bring all of the Active Display goodness from the Moto X to all other Android devices. The app has gone through a name change, plus is being actively updated, but today, a good-sized update went live on Google Play, so it’s a good time we remind you that it exists.
In the update, customizable actions are coming to your lockscreen for certain applications, with the addition of new action-swipe targets. Before, users would usually swipe to open an app or dismiss a notification, but now with action swipes, you can choose an action for apps, such as “reply” or “delete” for Gmail messages.
In addition to new actions, an option to disable lockscreen sound when breathing has been added, as well as a new feature for rooted users who use Xposed. Check out the full changelog below.
- New Action-swipe-targets (e.g. “Archive” and “Reply” for Gmail-notifications).
- New bottom info-row, showing a preview of the secondary-notifications content.
- Option to disable lockscreen-sound when breathing (requires “WRITE_SETTINGS”-permission).
- Root: Xposed-module to suppress “Immersive mode” help messages (non-root users: Disable immersive mode under “Advanced appearance options” –> “Advanced”).
