Lightflow is the gold standard of Android LED notification apps.
Lite (free): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite&hl=en
Pro (paid): https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflow&hl=en
Not sure if it can be done with Tasker alone, but take a look at the Light Flow app (Pro) to control the notification LED.
There are several apps that let you do it. Light flow comes to mind.
There are several custom roms that have this feature built in. But you might already know this.
I use Light Flow with my 5x and it does the trick. I'm not sure if you can customize the color with the free version (you probably can), but you can certainly do it with the $2.49 paid version.
It basically down to the developer to activate the notification LED if/when they create a notification.
If the developer didn't do this, or you want to change the colour of the LED associated with a given notification there are third party solutions.
Try using lightflow (or the lite version which is free). Very customisable.
Light Flow allows you to control notifications and set custom vibration patterns and LED.
I've been using it for years on various phones and it always worked great.
You can get vibration for apps that don't vibrate on notification, or vice versa.
Nothing built in; I've used Light Flow and Light Manager in the past. Light Manager is a bit simpler and if you're looking to just tweak a few app's colors, I'd recommend starting with that. Light Flow gives you a lot more control at the cost of complexity.
I haven't used this personally, but I think some people over at /r/nexus5x has been using Light Flow to control the notification LED.
Here's a link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite
I believe lightflow lets use do this with the regular flash, so I imagine you would be able to use the front facing flash too.
Maby you can test it in the light version ?
But I don't really understand why it is "bullshit" to pay for a great app...
EDIT: I mean you even could test it in the full version and request a refund if it does not work.
Light Flow used to be my go to for notification light management. However as I indicated in my post, it seems to be broken after the update.
I'd love to find a solution as well.
This is an absolute pet peeve of mine and it's worse with group chats. I highly recommend the app LightFlow, which allows you to customize notifications-- in my case, I don't let my texting app beep more than once every ten minutes, so it doesn't matter whether I get one text or fifty in that span.
The charging LED jumps to blue to indicate that it uses quick charging, when you're not quick charging it uses the colour you set in the settings.
As for the notifications, the default notification colour is the one you set in the settings, however apps can also set their own colour which overrides the colour you picked. You can change the notification on a per app basis using Light Flow.
Take a look at the app Light Flow by Reactle. You can set up reminder sounds for any notification you, and you can also configure it to repeat the sound as needed.
I used this to change for Snapchat & Messenger Lite...it's not just the LED control...in the menu, you get to change the sound.
For the notifications, long press on the settings icon in the Quick Settings menu. This will enable a "OnePlus Laboratory" page in the settings app with power notification controls. Enable it and then you have a little more power over the notifications of individual apps.
While it'll let you silence apps will letting them still show notifications, it doesn't allow you to set different sounds for individual apps. Take a look at Lightflow for that.
I used LightFlow back in the day and it was per app notification sounds and it repeats if you wanted to. The Vibrate Notification can also be customized also. Not sure if the LED portion works with the Pixel but you might want to give it a try- https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite&hl=en
Light Flow is what I use, but it requires root to function
I give up Google Pay just so I can have a functioning LED light xD
Any chance you could assuage my impatient curiosity and show us a couple shots of notification LED colors and what the capacitive buttons look like when they're backlit? If not, no worries! :)
Light Flow may work to allow you to turn the LED on at will.
If an application is capable of using the LED, you'll find the settings for it in the application. You may also try something like Light Flow: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite . I'm not sure if it works with the PRIV, though.
A general Android tip: most settings (especially notifications) are set on a per-app basis inside the apps.
Lightflow will do exactly that. Controls all sorts of notifications and how you are notified of them, totally customizable.
If priority mode doesn't give you what you want, Light Flow will let you do some fancy custom notification rules.
Light Manager is considered to be better.
I loved my first Android phone - the Nexus 4 - just for that! I love having a LED notification and being able to see/know what app notifies me of something. Since then I've only looked for phones with a notification LED. My S7 has AOD too, but I never use it. I tried it, but didn't like it too much, so I'm only using the LED.
The biggest problem is, though, that Google didn't bother to update the LED notification API lately (a few years I think) - I know because I was using Light Flow (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite) and the developer(s) complained about that when Android 6.0 was out.
Lightflow used to be the go to. I've not used it in years though so can't tell you if it's still as good as it used to be
Try Light Flow, you can use it to customize LED colour, sound and vibration patterns for each notification. You can set rules per app or even per keyword in the notification. Some of those might be only available after purchasing pro, but it's worth it IMO.
The LED should be able to be controlled with Light Flow
And there are some customization options for the alert slider in the settings
Pretty sure you can do this with Light Flow. As well as managing vibration and notification led colours. There's a lite version of the app if you want to test it out.
I'm using a custom ROM. Some carriers disable this option for some reason.
You could install an app like Light Flow: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite&hl=en
This gives you full control over the LEDs.
personally I use Tasker and another plugin to have full control over the LED, but that's overkill for someone who doesn't already use Tasker.
It's an app that lets you choose color notifications for each app you want, as well as other things like vibration patterns, etc. I've been using it for years.
I also recently tried out Light Manager on another phone and it seems pretty good too.
You can only select -Contacts, or -Starred Contacts not specific contacts.
I think you can also make contact specific notification options with Light Flow
I don't remember ever seeing a setting to change vibration strength under any version of Android, outside of custom ROMs (which wouldn't fly with a KeyOne).
You can, however, set vibration pattern and length for every app, as well as notification LED colour and time-on, with Lightflow. Highly recommend it, I make a point of using it on every phone I own, and across every ROM I flash.
I believe on Samsung devices, the LED (light) color cannot be changed unless the specific app you are using has a specific setting to do so.
For example, the default Samsung SMS app does not offer you the option to change LED colors, so it remains dark blue. However, Textra SMS app offers you the option to change LED colors, so it can be changed to Red, Green, Cyan, etc...
You can try downloading or sideloading an app like Light Flow or any other LED-changing app from the play store and see if it will work with your device.
Never used it but Light Flow? It can customize the LEDs but perhaps there is a way in the app to like have granular control over the main notifications.
LightFlow integration would be great. The number of controls this offers to just a regular LED is awesome. If some kind of partnership, or an open API to hook into would be incredible.
Try Light Flow
Sound control, including repeating sounds
Vibration control, including custom vibration patterns and repeating vibrations
An app called Light Flow lets you customize the vibration - both a pattern and duration, with a longer buzz being louder. I've used it to make vibrations quieter for certain apps as well as different patterns depending on the notification, but it might also help to make them louder.
^ This is what I use with my android phone and they have an iOS version to use as well. Highly recommend it.
Not sure if there is an option to use Liteflow as well on the iOS side but it comes in handy to also see at a glance what type of messages I receive based on the color of the LED on the front of my phone
Well, yes and no. Lightflow on the Play Store will let you assign custom ringtones to any app as well IIRC, but it doesn't work as reliably as GB.
OH. Did I seriously skip over the LED part? Sorry man! There are Apps that let you control the LED light separately yeah! Holy cow I'm dumb! I have not used it for awhile so maybe it doesnt have what you want, but it's my closest guess.
Light Flow Lite
Format is hopefully setup right (I'm on mobile) sorry man!
lightflow can do that.
You can try Light Flow Lite (Free Version) to see if it'll do what you need:
If your intent is to have the LED on when the device us on, you can have it set to monitor an always-on setting/state, such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.
Another app that might be of use is Tasker, though you would have to create a task to do this:
Note, depending on what's needed, you may also require a third-party app/plugin.
Edit: To confirm, when you mention LED light, are you talking about the LED notification light or the LED camera flash?
Ah! Lol. Sorry about that.
Try Light Flow
I kept searching and I don't think there's any way to control the speed of the notification LED.
I use Light Flow. I had to uninstall it and reinstall in to get the right features (This was suggested by the devs) but once I reinstalled, everything was working just fine. They even have the program set to detect if you are working on a Nexus 6 and gives instructions via the app.
Light Flow Lite
There are two versions, the free and the paid version. I linked the free version above if you want to test it out.
I hope you can get your ambient display to work, but wanted to share some info about the LED. Not having the Notification LED was a big deal for me. It's one of those things I didn't appreciate until it wasn't there. The Nexus 6 has a notification LED in the top speaker, it's just not utilized by the software. I used Light Flow to enable it. Kind of clunky, but it does work.
Should be possible to use Light Flow for this:
The one drawback about using the notification LED on the Nexus 7 is that the LED light is white only. However, you can customize the flash rate at least.
You can test it out for free using the Lite version:
This is more of an android setting. Some phones allow you control it more than others. You can use apps to control the led to flash certain colors or speeds using third party apps such as this one
In addition to Light Manager, Light Flow can do this.
Light Flow does repeating notifications
I found this in /r/galaxynote4, but that method didn't seem to work for me as I couldn't find the exact setting the user listed. You might have better luck than me.
Lightflow Free or paid
Some tasker wizardry
This "disable charging led" xposed module
This "Xposed LED" module
Try Light Flow and you'll be able to solve that
Sounds like you're looking for something like Lightflow?
I've used Light Flow since switching to Android from BB and it is the first app I install on a new phone. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite
Edit: as long as your phone supports LED. The Nexus 6, for example, requires root to use it.
Don't have the phone yet... You can give Light Flow a shot and see if it works for you.
Check out Lightflow!
haven't got a pixel yet, but on my nexus 5 I use lightflow
There's an app called Light Flow
You can use Light Flow Lite to change it.
No. You can get some rudimentary LED support with the Light Flow app though. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite&hl=en
Does this do anything that Lightflow doesn't?
Light Flow or a similar app might be able to help. It helps you customize notifications.
You can use Light Flow https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite
If i remember correctly I believe i used the Light Flow app to disable it.
You can try Light Flow and see if that'll help
You can also use light flow, pro
Or maybe light manager
I think they mean the app that allows you to control your Pixel's notification light.
Maybe it could be done with Lightflow?
try light flow
Can be a bit buggy depending on device, but might work.
Never does that for me. You sure you've got that setting disabled?
Or just install Light Flow.
Not sure about vibrate/sound control, but LED control can be done with Light Flow.
Yes, via third party app such as Light Flow. (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite)
You never heard or used Light Flow Lite? It has all the options you want.
Not sure if it's possible but that'd be the place to look I would think.
This app should help: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite&hl=en
There is a free version that doesn't offer as many LED changes. Free Version on Play Store.
Light Flow allows the LED to work in Prority mode
Maybe try the free version, Light Flow Lite
This is one of them although I haven't tried it myself on the G7: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.rageconsulting.android.lightflowlite
You can try Light Flow, doesn't require root nor xposed
Interesting; I already have other solutions in place on my Note 4 for every single one of those issues.
Thanks to Light Flow, I know exactly what my LED means. I use Switchr instead of a taskbar (it's way better for one-handed use on a bigass screen anyway). And for media controls, I've got the standard fullscreen display anyway (and a smartwatch, but that's a whole other thing).
What do you mean by "single-tap settings?"
EDIT - why the hell is this getting downvoted? I'm not saying the second screen is useless. Quite the contrary, I had to root to solve those problems.
