Notification sounds can be annoying!
You’re about to watch one of your favorite movies or shows…or you’re in the middle of one, only to be scared half to death by a blaring notification sound!
Want to know how to avoid that? In this article we will tell you why these noises happen and how to make them stop.
What is that horrible sound anyways?
These sounds are apps giving you a notification, just like on your cell phone or tablet. But since these notification sounds are sent to your TV speakers or sound system, they’re much louder and more frightening. Social media apps are the most notorious notification offenders. Anytime anything happens on your profile you are sent an annoying notification. But social media apps aren’t the only offenders. Almost every app available will annoyingly send you notifications for whatever reason. It’s their way of staying relevant and fighting for your attention in an ever competitive market.
So how can we turn an apps notifications off on an EZ Stream Android Streaming Media Player?
Luckily it’s an easy process and will only take a minute or two depending on how many apps you have that you’ve logged into. Please remember that all Android devices are different and the steps may be slightly different. So if you are using a different device besides one of our Android TV Boxes the process may be different.
