    Default Hiding Google Hangouts Message From Notifications Bar

    Is it possible? What I mean is, Google Hangouts basically shows the incoming message in the notification bar if your phone is already awake. So if I'm showing someone something on my phone and a message comes in, they can read it at the top of my screen. I'd like to be able to disable this, but keep the notification sound.

    Thanks!

    I don't think this can be done yet. I agree, the option of a preview would be nice.

    I see. Well, I guess there's hoping of the option in an update.

    Thanks!

    that truly is annoying, not been able to hide the preview of your messages.

    Lightbulb Here's how to hide the notification preview

    As of Android Marshmallow, you can control notification previews via Settings -> Notifications -> Advanced -> Hangouts -> Preview in Popups.

    In Android Nougat, go to Settings -> Notifications -> Hangouts, and check "Show silently".
