    Is there a way? They're kinda annoying. I don't want texts popping up while I'm watching videos.

    I don't want to turn off notifications completely. I just don't want the pop-up that appears at the top of my screen. I still want the phone to go off when I get a text.

    As above. Select "When device is locked" - Don't show notifications at all.

    I do not think that is what he means. He is talking about if you are in an app and the message appears as a banner up top, similar to IOS. I do not think you can turn that off.

    The notifications use to appear as an icon in the status bar, now they are a banner in addition to the icon.

    Does that apply specifically to "messages"? I just sent myself an email from my PC while browsing pictures on my Nexus 5; I heard the notification sound and got the GMail icon in the notification bar, but no banner of any kind. And that is with Notifications enabled.

    If I send an email to myself while the phone is locked, I do get the lockscreen banner when I turn the phone on...

    It must be. I use messages and just tested it

    Looks like it depends upon the app. Hangouts does it, like you say. OTOH, GMail / Inbox / GroupMe only show icons. I'd assume that the SDK allows an application developer to specify how the notification shows up when the phone is not locked.

    For the Hangouts shade, you can slide it up to get it off the screen.

    I think this is exactly the point. These complaints for the most part are probably not native to the OS but to the various apps. A few months down the road we may see many apps being updated to make better use of the capabilities and features of the new OS.

    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!

    Thanks for ur input everyone. I realized after using Textra that it is indeed up to the dev/app because Textra has as option to turn it off. The "floating notification", as they call it, doesn't play nice with the lockscreen or Daydream and the Textra ppl are blaming SwiftKey. Yeah Idk.. Lol

    Is ther any new informations about this? These "floating notifications" are what's currently holding me back from Android L.

    What did Google think they were doing? Silent mode removed, now even giving incompetent devs to show massive pop-ups...

    I am having this same issue with WhatsApp after updating my phone last night. It is more than frustrating. All settings within the app are set to NO pop-up..yet this stupid banner still pops up on my screen with a message. Please say there is a way to fix this!

    Having this issue with GroupMe since 5.0. I can't stand how it pops up as a banner over any application or screen I'm in. I want the old notification tray at the top ONLY.

    I can deal with the new lock screen, but having the banner pop up is extremely annoying.

    In the sound and notifications, click on block all messages from the particular app. Just did it for WhatsApp.

    Why on earth would we want no notifications? The only time I use the feature you recommended is when I'm showing someone something on my phone and don't want the dumb banner showing my PRIVATE conversation to display to them. Private= every conversation. So frustrating, these notifications.

    Yeah I hear ya. I just happened to get a replacement phone (S5) via warranty and it came without Lollipop, thankfully. I won't be upgrading until there's an option in Whatsapp to turn off those popups. If the option doesn't come, I'll have to switch to another chat app in order to upgrade.
