WhatsApp and Slack for me. Oh and The Wing as I recently joined and don't want to miss any updates while I'm there 😊.

@khyati_seo do you have it on for most apps? do you find them distracting?

@abadesi Yes I have on my notification all the time, all the apps and it is not even distracting me

Only on slack for work and whatsapp only for a couple of groups. But I have my phone on silent all the time so I use the notification center asynchronously.

@gonelf Interesting. I have my phone on DND a lot to manage this but generally try to not have any push notifications if I can help it. Especially since I'm usually in front of my computer screen anyway.

@abadesi true, I usually pay more attention to push notifications when I'm not on my computer. I also avoid smartwatch due to push notifications.

Digital minimalism has reformed my approach to smartphones. Feel more relaxed. I even have separate android app to block the notifications that I cannot disable on Android (ie. screenschot taken notification)

@abishekhkc I turned off my Instagram ones pretty quickly because they were distracting... do you ever find it stressful/annoying?

@abadesi I have muted almost everyone. Only i follow my favourites. and push notifications turned on for them. Instagram push notifications are really annoying one. There's no need to waste our time just looking at someone's icecream pic. 😄

Push notification is the first thing I disable when I install new app.
Ideas, design research, copy
Many are enabled by default so I don't necessarily reject them but I don't pay attention to them either. The only welcome dings are text messages, AirBnB messages/bookings, WhatsApp messages, Messenger messages, and iCal alerts that I set up. Instagram DMs and Strava also send me banner/bubble notifications, and honestly I'm a sucker for the Strava ones, but I need to turn them off (and will do so today). I do use the number bubbles for email apps, Remindres, and WhatsApp group chats - I ignore them until I want to read them.

@zaheerbaloch thanks for sharing. Twitter always prompts me to turn on notifications but don't. It's usually open in one of my many browser tabs anyway.
Bank, Uber, Google Calendar etc

All social media push notifications are turned off. Some others have them partially on. Only my finance apps, Slack, Messenger, Messages, Phone, Mail have them fully on.
