    Hello Everybody!

    I am looking for a way to increase visibility of notifications on my Redmi 6 Android 8.1.0 O11019

    I want them to actually be a pop-ups which would interrupt other applications if needed.

    Second thing I would like to ask is about disconnecting apps.

    Whenever I tab out of any app which is requires connection to internet (games or stuff) app disconnects I understand that Internet is cut off if I tab out - is thee anyway to prevent it from happening ?

    Same with screen saver, is there a way to setup some applications to overrule phone general settings and do not turn off the screen during phone inactivity ?


    Thanks in advance!

    Install a different launcher from the play store. Many have the options you are looking for

    Hi Danny,

    Thanks for prompt answer.

    Nova launcher.
    Also messaging apps will give you different options for notifications.
    Try textra.

    There seems to be a few apps that will do that. I saw this one, but there are probably others to try before you decide which works best for you.

    For calendar notifications you could use an app called Calendar Snooze, which makes these quite unmissable.

    I expect many third party SMS apps have this option (they used to anyway, I've not used it for years). If not there were dedicated apps like SMS Popup.

    Don't know about all notifications though.
