I've bought a new Phone which has KitKat 4.4.2 (Karbonn Titanium Octane Plus) with kernel version 3.4.67.

It has a very annoying feature of SMS Bubble that pops up when there is any message and the most annoying feature is that it doesn't gets away till you read the message.

How to turn off this feature?

  • What is your default messaging app? . Try disabling the app and install different app from play store. Is it only for text messages ? You can also try going to the setting of the messaging app and find the option to disable pop up if there is any – samnaction Mar 13 '15 at 5:46

  • Google messenger does not provide sms pop up. There may be some other app to provide sms pop up. May be a screen shot would be helpful. – samnaction Mar 13 '15 at 6:19

  • Go to messaging app information.
  • Uncheck show notifications.
