Imagine being immersed in an engaging emotional play experience – it’s just that the moment was marred by loud and loud announcements of achievement by using short messages even to ruin what just happened. Instead, turn off Xbox notifications so that they don’t interfere with your playing experience.
Although some notifications can be useful, you can quickly adjust the pop-ups that appear, where they appear, and how long they stay on screen. To access these settings, press the Xbox button on the center of your controller, and navigate to the gear icon on the far right of the Xbox menu. Select “Settings.”
Scroll down to the “Preferences” tab on the left and select the “Notifications” option.
If you want to turn off notifications so that they don’t appear at all, uncheck the “Active Banner Notification” option. If not, you can adjust which Xbox notifications appear by selecting the “Xbox Notifications” option at the top of the list on the right. If you want to adjust any notifications that can be activated through a particular application, you can access them under “Application Notifications.”
In the Xbox “Notifications” menu, you can turn off special notifications for achievements, social features, Xbox Help, and more.
Back on the “Notification” menu, you can use the “Default Notification Position” option to choose where you want the notification to appear.
If you want to change how long the notification appears, or how long the notification remains in your Xbox guide, select the “Time Notification” option under the “Notification” menu. You can choose a number of options ranging from standard around 10 seconds to 30 seconds or even 5 minutes.
This setting makes it easy to turn off notifications when you are watching a movie or play more single player games and then turn it back on when you are ready to play the game with friends or see your desired achievements.
