In Nougat, there used to be a per-app option to control which apps could override Do Not Disturb. In Oreo, I only see the Low/Medium/High/Urgent options, none of which say that they override Do Not Disturb. Is there still a way to do this for Oreo apps? If so, how?


On stock Oreo 8.0 (MiA1)

Settings → Apps and notifications →App Info → Choose app (not all apps have this permission) →App Notification → Enable override

enter image description here

  • It looks like that's only there for legacy apps, not ones that target Oreo and use its new notification channels. Aug 17 '18 at 21:58
  • Is that so? Can you quote an example app?

  • Chrome is one such app. I see "Allow notification dot" and then a bunch of categories, none of which contain that option. Aug 18 '18 at 4:43
  • +1. I see your point. Maybe you should ask a separate question( using this as reference) to ask how it can be done for such apps. I have no answer

    If your device is rooted, gravity box xposed module offers notification control that can do this
