    I have a Nexus 6P, So my notifications were perfect nothing changed when I updated to Oreo a couple weeks ago, but today I turned off notifications on Snapchat and Fb Messenger, and once I turned them back on, the settings are changed. There is no option to disable notification pop ups on screen. I just want the sound and the little icon in the top left corner like how it always was, anyone know how I can change that?

    Go to Settings>Apps & Notifications>Notifications>Notifications, select the app, then tap the Category (not the toggle switch), and change the Importance. If you change the Importance from Urgent to High, it will make a sound, but won't cause a popup.

    Here's Facebook messenger for example, these are the only options I'm seeing, I don't see a category option, same goes for Snapchat

    Sorry, it's a bit awkward to explain -- what I meant was to tap the words and not the toggle switch (e.g., tap on "Allow sound" instead of the toggle switch). But as I look more closely at my phone's settings, I see that not all apps allow you to set the importance. If you looked at the Notification settings for Android Messages, for example, you'd see a Categories list, which shows each individual text conversation. If you tap the name of a conversation, you get the option to change the Importance level of the notifications. I guess that's not possible with FB Messenger.

    There's an app called HeadsOff that did what you want for Lollipop, but unfortunately it stopped working after Marshmallow.

    its just weird how this wasn't an issue with marshmallow and when I first updated to Oreo, this only started when I turned my notifications off for those apps then back on, it's really annoying as it seems like we've gone backwards to the lollipop days
