    I'm with you in thinking this is annoying. Unfortunately, nope. The option to individually disable them is gone in the Nougat update. No way to bring it back, to my knowledge, even with 3rd party apps. Your only hope is to root, I believe. Or live with it.

    My S7 is running Nougat.
    If I go to messages, settings, notifications... Tap that and another menu opens. There I have the option to turn off popups when I get a message...

    That's just messages. The problem lies in other apps.

    What happens when you disable "Apps that can appear on top" feature?

    Apps just can't overlay items onto the screen (like the floating Samsung Pay button or Facebook's Messenger's floating chat heads). Since the notification pop up is a part of the system, that doesn't count as an app drawing over other apps, so that won't disable them.

    Well so far the solution for me is use the silence notification option and have Lightflow manage the sounds.

    Isn't Lightflow typically buggy with Samsung phones?

    There are apps that use the draw over other apps option, TextNow is one of those. Disabling the draw feature does disable the popup though at some point they did enable the feature within the app to disable popup notifications.

    I meant that if you disable the Draw Over Apps option that's what happens: apps can't draw over other apps. The pop-up notifications, if part of the app itself, uses this menu. But if the pop-up shows up as part of the native Android notification system, then turning off the Draw option won't disable those as it's part of the system; only disabling notifications for said app would do the trick.

    Nope. Use the Legacy version.
