    I have this problem where google sends me a notification about a final score for a sports team I am interested in, I see the score - think oh that's interesting - and swipe the notification away to dismiss it. I lock my phone and go do something else for a minute and 2-5 minutes later (sometimes more) - I get the same notification again - same score - same game. I dismiss it again. This happens 5-10 times for every sports team I get notifications for, and gets really annoying when my team lost by 20 points and google is rubbing it in my face for the entire day by repeatedly sending these notifications over and over, even though I keep dismissing them.

    Now, let me start by saying I want to receive these notifications, they are of interest to me, but only once. I want to be able to see the score, then dismiss that bit of information from my life. I've searched all over online, in my general phone settings, in the notifications settings, in the app itself. I haven't been able to find anything and I'm not quite sure what to do.

    I have a Samsung S8, and am running Android 8.0.0. Any suggestions or am I just out of luck and need to turn the notifications off?

    Are you sure you didn't ask for the notification more than once?

    I am pretty sure, I mean its possible, but I don't think there are 4 different places to receive the same notification from. How would you even do that - it always happens at least four times. It also happens with samsung health notifications. Does swiping the notifications to the left or the right not dismiss the notification?

    Same here. It's been driving me nuts for over a year. I have a Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, so that may speak to the breadth of the problem.

    Has anyone solved this. I want the notification about he story or whatever it is, I just don't want it snoozed and returned every 30 minutes like it is now.

    I've been experiencing the exact same issue for a while.. This appears to be a Google issue where they are snoozing notifications until you open them and can't swipe dismiss without opening.. I'm concerned as to why they are not doing anything about it... Maybe it's another form of forcing content to its users idk but it's annoying. The only reason I keep it is just as you say some of the original notifications are useful to me sign
