With the new Android 11, you no longer need to use third-party apps to see your notification history. So, if you’ve got a phone running the latest public beta, here’s how to check notification history in Android 11.

Check Notification History in Android 11 Without Any Third-Party Apps

The Android 11’s Notification History feature does exactly what you’d expect it to. Using it, you can check all your previous notifications on your phone that you may have missed or swiped off accidentally from the past 24 hours. Moreover, one can even interact with the content as if it was still alive in the notification shade.

However, this feature isn’t enabled by default and needs to be toggled in settings, as follows.

Step-by-step Guide to Enable Notification History in Android 11

1] Launch Settings on your phone.

2] Head to Settings > Apps & notifications > Notifications.

3] Here, click on Notification History. Enable the toggle on the next screen to turn on the feature.

Once you’ve enabled the feature, Android will start keeping a record of all your notifications. You can visit the tab anytime to check the notifications you may have missed out or dismissed accidentally.

The list will be displayed in chronological order. Plus, alongside the app name and time, you’ll also see the visual read-out of the notification content. The same can be tapped to interact as usual.

Wrapping Up

So, if you’ve updated to Android 11, you no longer need third-party apps to check your notification history. The same can be done straight through your system settings using the guide above.

Anyway, how’s your experience with the new Android so far? What phone are you using it on? Let us know in the comments below. Also, feel free to reach out in case of any doubts or queries.
