    I just switched back to Android (Pixel XL2) after a brief affair with an iphone x. I am not 100% happy with the notification options in Oreo 8.1 although they are leagues better the ios. Here is what I am trying to accomplish by app or any other way:

    -Show more lines of text in some notifications like Twitter.
    -Show rich alerts where, if there is a link, a photo or other content is displayed.

    I used to use Snowball for Android which is a discontinued app that could do that and it was amazing (you can still get the .apk on line). Did anyone use Snowball?

    If you have any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated! I have looked around but found nothing helpful.

    Yeah. Definitely better than iOS but has it's flaws.
    Didn't know about snowball. Used to work with Floatify pro when I had non pixel devices
    It's the best notification app that I know.

    Could you provide a link? When I search for 'Floatify pro' https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...s.floatify.pro is shown but that only functions on the Lockscreen - not at all what the OP is looking for.

    I'm not familiar with Snowball but it sounds interesting.
