Samsung introduced tons of new features when they rolled out their version of the Android Oreo update. Some of the best improvements were done on the UI front. This update included a better lock screen which features the new clock that matches the color with the set wallpaper. Furthermore, you can now set the level of transparency of the lock screen notifications. This is particularly useful if you hate the fact that an opaque notification block ruins the beautiful wallpaper. Here’s how to adjust the transparency of lock screen notification on Samsung Galaxy devices. This works on Samsung Galaxy S10, S9, S8, S7, Note 10, 9, A series and J series running on One UI or Samsung Experience on Android 8 and 9.
Adjust Transparency of Lock Screen Notification on Samsung Galaxy
Follow the steps below;
Step 1: Open device’s Settings on your Samsung Galaxy device.
Step 2: Scroll down and find Lock Screen and Security.
Step 3: When inside Lock Screen and Security, find Notifications. Tap on it. If you see a toggle beside it, do not tap on it; tap on the text.
Step 4: You will find a slider with Transparency above it. Move the slider to adjust the slider as per your preference.
You can see a preview of the lock screen on the top so that you will know exactly how it will look as you adjust the transparency. A fully transparent lock screen notification also looks good but only on certain wallpapers – preferably dark ones. A fully transparent notification would be difficult to read on a bright wallpaper. Also, make sure the toggle is turned to on Auto-reverse text color. Enabling this would make the text readable on a bright background even if the transparency is set to High.
It was a good move by Samsung to combine this feature with an adaptive clock. Your device’s lock screen didn’t look this much better before.
