    Lets say i have txt messaging, kik, & snapchat. I'd like all notifications for those things off completely-no sound, no popup- no matter who it is-but i want ONE persons notifications to show up when they txt.

    How would i go about doing that?

    You can do that for the stock messaging app using Do Not Disturb, but I'm not aware of a way to do that for 3rd party apps.

    Thanks! What about just for texts though? If i go into settings>notifications, i can turn notifications for a bunch of apps off. If i turn off notifications for texts, obvs i get none for texts. Is there a way to make one(or more,) numbers or contacts an exeption? It seems like a simple functionality but im not seeing it on my s21. Ineed it on an s20 but i dont have that phone with me currently-im assuming itd be the same for both.

    Eta: just discovered you can do it via do not disturb, just allow certain numbers to call or text-but its silent, u can get a popup but no audio notification for the allowed contact. I NEED the audio notification.

    It shouldnt be this hard ������ (thats what she said)

    In DND should be able to select favorite contact and just choose the one you want

    Try this , long press the message icon then tap info>go to notification> tap incoming message then scroll to the bottom and toggle on ignore DND ....I have to see for phone but test message app that way .Enable select notifications?-screenshot_20210803-231619_settings.jpg

    For third party apps, you might try something like MacroDroid - you could turn off the sound, pop-ups for all notifications in the app itself, but create a macro in MacroDroid that IF a notification from Kik comes in AND it's a specific person (specific text string), THEN it will ring/vibrate (don't think it can do the pop-up though). Just an idea to pursue.
