Notification history in Android 11: this is how it works
It’s annoying (and especially annoying) if you accidentally wipe a notification on your Android phone without reading it properly. If you still want to know what the notification was about, you can easily use the ‘Notification history’ function in the new Android 11.
This will give you an overview of all notifications you have received in the past 24 hours. You can then read back all notifications to see what you may have missed. You must first enable the Notification History feature on your device. That is how it works:
- Settings app
Open the Settings app on your smartphone with Android 11;
- Apps and notifications
Tap on ‘Apps and notifications’ and then select ‘Notifications’;
- Notification history
Below the image, tap on ‘Notification history’, after which you can activate the function to view all received notifications.
And that was it! You no longer need a separate app in Android 11 to read back notifications. The list shows all the notifications you have received in the last 24 hours in chronological order. Then you can tap on them to read them.

Android 11 available for Google Pixel phones since last year and also released for several Samsung phones. Other manufacturers will also release the update in the near future.
