    On whatsapp, I went to notifications > pop up notifications (messages and group messages) and > always show notifications. Believe it or not, the annoying pop up banner disappeared, but not the old notification at the top!

    Cheeeeers

    Hi, I think rahman man meant as follows: Settings > Security > Screen pinning (you have to scroll down the menu) > On.
    I tried, It didn't work for my android 5.1.
    Still no solution... Frustrating.

    For messaging you can go to Settings>Sounds and notifications > Other Sounds > Messages > Uncheck Pop-up Display

    For Groupme you have to go into the app settings and disable Heads Up notifications

    Once again a company has "updated" a feature that was never broken to begin with. To all Developers simple and initiative is what we want. Stop fixing things that we don't complain about!!!!!

    Now could someone tell me how to get rid of this awful orange on the messaging screen.

    I ended up downloading a different messaging app (chompSMS) and installed a custom skin.... unfortunately, that is the only way. Maybe if you root or use Nova that can be customized, but not on stock. I hated the orange too.

    And still no solution to the Whatsapp banner... ughhhh

    I wish there was a way to simply show the number of texts, emails, missed calls on the home screen ---like used to be able to do wtih the widget Missed It! Lollipop has changed notifications (for the worse IMO) so much that widgets like this apparently don't work. With Missed It! you could have the following on your home screen:

    0 missed calls
    3 texts
    6 emails

    I would also like to have custom tones that sound when calls or texts come in, unless they have been silenced. It seems like Lollipop has made what used to be simple too complicated---or even impossible

    ]I have Lollipop on the G3 from Verizon. I've disabled popups in messenger, I've disabled interruptions, I've tried turning on pinning, I've tried disabling notifications, I've tried changing the priority. I still can't stop the popup at the center of my screen that STOPS everything else until you press the arrow in the bottom left of the screen. I've tried installing google messenger and setting it as the default text app.

    +1 for the super annoying pop up notification banner.

    If I could meet the genius who decided that this was a smart feature to force, I would congratulate him on his achievement...android developer or UI designer of the year award... RIDICULOUS.

    Seriously, to all developers out there, here's an idea, when you think of a feature that should be included in an OS that millions use, how about a section where you can DISABLE IT IF YOU DONT LIKE IT???

    K thanks, thats just my 2 cents on this.

    So anyone found a solution ?


    I just got my Note 4 and am shocked that its gotten worse with Lolipop. Read all the above and agree with all of you , facing same problem with Whatsapp and Normal SMS

    Is there any way to downgrade :P or to write to someone to fix this issue.


    Am sure we can generate enough global support to this.


    Thanks

    Yes, but sometimes that seems to disable toolbar notifcations too. For instance, I used to get notifications from gmail that I could see via a toolbar mail icon even when the device was locked. Now, they don't exist. I rather liked that!

    But unless I turn off notifications on the lock screen I get an endless number of meaningless notifications--like Lookout telling me all is well; like Skype telling me it's available. Those, I'd like ONLY on the toolbar, but there seem no way to do that.

    I like some banner notifications (text messages!) and the option to use them on the lockscreen...but there just aren't enough customization options from what I see to manage both the toolbar and the lockscreen.

    The following worked for me:
    Go to notifications in whatsapp
    Set notification tone to silent
    uncheck contact ringtone
    Set vibrate to off (interestingly popups still come when vibration is on????? who developed this?)
    Select no popup

    The vibrate made the difference. Try it and let me know if it works for you as well.

    I found this thread probably like most of you- trying to fix this extremely annoying pop up thing! Absolutely horrible idea. However, a couple of things..

    There has always been a similar feature- the message text used to pop up, but it stayed enclosed in the notification bar. Now that I liked, because if I caught the message as it came in I could read it without even opening the app. Thus far I have found no way to get that back. I have, however, been able to keep the notification of whatsapp while disabling the annoying pop up. Oddly enough, you do it by turning it ON. Set it to show pop ups only if screen is off. Now, if your screen is on, you will only receive a icon in the notification bar along with your normal notification sound. Not sure about the other messaging apps, but it worked for whatsapp.

    Hope this helps!

    If you go to settings security and turn on pinning, your texts won't pop on top of whatever screen you have pinned. It just worked for me anyway!
    I have gone to "settings" and "security" but there is no "turn on pinning"

    Any other options?

    You can turn off the heads up notification and still get the notification by using android ADB command (no root needed).
    Here is the command:
    Code:
    adb shell settings put global heads_up_notifications_enabled 0

    doesn't look like the pic went through.

    Okay so in Settings...Notifications...Pop-up display (uncheck)

    Let me know if that worked for anyone else. I'm using a Note 4 with the latest software...

    I am having the same problem in my Galaxy A3.
    Previously, whenever i receive WhatsApp messages, there will be a notification line indicating the sender name only. But after update to Android 5.0.2, notification panel on top showing sender with messages as well.

    Secondly, i cant see any notifications on lock screen. The icon can be seen only upon unlocking the lock screen.
    Kinda annoying.
    Any idea, anyone.

    I have tried Application Manager from Settings..but nothing happens.
    Thanks a million

    Yes - two people have posted the solution above. In settings go to messaging settings > notifications > message preview and unselect it.

    This stops the stupid banners showing your private convos to everyone

    Hope that helps
