    Just a heads up that there is an Edge Lighting software update in the Galaxy Apps store. With the new update, you can further customize the edge lighting, which a lot of people seem to have problems with. You can change things such as width of the lighting, colors, etc.

    I played around with some of the settings, but I still can't see the lighting on the AOD, which is where I am most interested in seeing it. Maybe I just haven't played around enough yet.

    I actually set it all up earlier today after the update and it works fine now. I have it set to notify for texts and WhatsApp, but it also glows (even facedown) when the phone rings. I'm happy with it now and have been using it all day. Make sure u have the settings so it shows ALWAYS.

    i don't like the little bubble pop up that comes with setting it to "always". Is there any way to keep the edge lighting but disable the mini bubble notification popup?

    Doesn't seem like it. The bubble replaces the usual notification that comes down with the "reply" function. Seems like it's one or the other.

    Yes, its something that I wanted more; not gaming. Somebody found this on the forum not long after the S8 came out but I haven't had a chance to search yet.

    Can you try turning off pop-up display in messages settings?

    I'm on Verizon, I have an advance settings option for my edge lighting. I got the V.3.1.00.1 update on August 29th. Idk about unlocked phones.

    Oh my bad, he said "I don't see" vs "I don't have" so I guess that threw me. I'm on Verizon too. Maybe it's just slow to roll out for all carriers/versions of the s8/+ ... I'm sure you'll all get it soon. Not really missing anything anyway, IMO

    Thanks for this. I wouldnt have ever noticed these new options if you hadn't posted this. For reference my carrier is Sky mobile (UK). Hope those of you who haven't got the update yet get it soon. I know how annoying it is when your left wondering why you haven't got the latest updates when others have.

    I'm unlocked. I assume you do what I'm doing.... go into Galaxy Apps, three dot menu, my apps, Update I just got a Bixby update there so that's where you get them.

    I have 3.0.89 and don't have the advanced settings.
