How to use notification light on Galaxy S22/S22+/S22 Ultra

In this article, we’ll explain how to enable and use edge lighting and flash notification features on your Samsung Galaxy S22, S22+ or S22 Ultra smartphones.

The edge lighting and flash notification features provide a visual indication when you receive a notification or an alert by lighting up the edges of the screen or flashing the front screen or even flashing the camera light on the back of your phone. This can be useful if you don’t want to miss a notification even when the device is locked or silent.

Edge lighting

Edge lighting is a great alternative to LED indicator light which was discontinued by Samsung in the newer S series devices including the S22 series. The edge lighting feature lights up the edges of the display whenever a notification arrives.
