Samsung released the notification bubble feature with the Android 11 update. It’s similar to Facebook Messenger’s “bubble notification,” which floats on top of your device while using another app. Without going to the app, it notifies you about new text messages, but when your phone is locked, the notification will appear as a regular notification. When you don’t use it, you can collapse it down. This guide will show you how to enable bubble notifications on Samsung phones running Android 12.
