    Sometimes when I'm in one app and get a notification from another app, it will automatically open the other app. For example, I will be in snapchat watching a video my friend sent me of his truck, and I will get a notification from groupme that someone posted in a group I'm in. About 1/2 second after this notification pops up, groupme will auto open as if I clicked on the notification. This also happens with messages (sms). How can I stop this? I hate when it auto-switches and I miss a snapchat or have to find where I was in that article on chrome.

    Glad to know that I'm not the only one with this issue, but it's too bad that nobody has a fix for this yet...

    This is extremely annoying! But I think I found an answer. Are you guys using a Gear watch?

    Letting people use my S9+ and then an app randomly opens is not a great way to show the oh one off. Thanks so much!!
