Is it possible to show previews of messages (as the iPhone does) on the lock screen on a Galaxy S3 running android 4.1.2?


There is a settings on text Messaging App to Preview Messages on Lock Screen.

Go to Text Messaging App --> (press menu) Settings-->(go to Notification Settings) Check Preview Messages Option.


You can use this app. It will display new messages when phone is locked.

  • Yes I already have that option enabled, it only shows the number of unread messages but no preview. Jan 9 '14 at 9:01
  • its default behavior. If you wish to show messages you can use an app(look at answer). It will display Message in lock screen.
