    I would like to prevent an app from showing a notification in the staus bar, but still make a sounds and or vibrate. So basically just make a sound but show nothing else. Can this be done? For example in Google Hangouts, I want a notification sound to chime when i get a new message but I dont want any notification to show up in the status bar .

    Based on my Nexus 6P (not sure what LG might have done with the menus), go to Settings, Sound & notification, App notifications and play around with the settings there. Not sure if this will block all notifications or just the ones on the notification shade but it's worth playing with.
