How can I Stop receiving notifications from someone without opening theirs chat( Google Chat )

My Company uses Google Chat(G Suite) as an IM client.
I’m having trouble and don’t want to receive chat notifications from a specific person.

I want to clear the “Notifications” checkbox in the attached image
http://wcblitzy.blogspot.com/2015/07/86-hangouts-how-to-turn-off-chat.html

So I referred to the official help.
However, it seems that I can’t change the notification settings until I open a chat with the person.

  1. Go to Hangouts at hangouts.google.com or in Gmail.
  2. Click a contact or conversation.
  3. Click Settings.
  4. Untick Notifications.

As you know, Google Chat has “Read receipts”.
Once I open a chat, the opening notification will be shared with the person.

I am in a position to refuse any contact with the person,
so I don’t even want to know what I’ve read.

I just want to avoid opening chats and getting notifications from him, but is there any way?

Chrome for Android’s media notifications disappear

Chrome and other browsers show media in the notifications area automatically. I use to be able to switch apps and continue playing the media. Now, when the app is no longer active, the media notification disappears.

I don’t know if I changed a setting somewhere or if an update broke something, any tips are appreciated.

Here’s a similar question:

Can I give an app the permission to see my calls without allowing to read all my notifications?

I bought one of these cheap smartwatches (Xiaomi Mi Band 4c). To use it, I need to install the Xiaomi Wear app.

I really like the option to notify me when I get a call. This way I keep my phone in silent during work. But the app demands a Super Permission to read all my notifications. This would include bank transactions, personal whatsapp message, etc.

I don’t trust Xiaomi that much to give them all that data. Does anyone would have a workaround? I want the app to be able to read my calls but not my notification.

You can see the description in: Settings -> Apps -> Advanced -> Special Apps Access -> Notification access -> select any app.

PS: I do have root access on the phone.

big sur – When I press “Clear All” on my Reminders in Notifications in macOS 11.5.2 Big Sur on M1, they don’t go away. Known bug? Solvable?

Known bug? When I press “Clear All” on my Reminders in Notifications in macOS 11.5.2 Big Sur on M1, they don’t go away. Fixable? (I’m speaking of Reminders, not Calendar notifications.)

I have to X them out 1 by one. If I hit clear all, I get one fewer, same as if I hit the X.

How exactly do apps not running “in the background” receive notifications?

So, Android has this view (I think left to the home button is standard) where you see all the “currently open” apps, whatever that means exactly. What I’m wondering is, how can apps that are not amongst the currently “running” ones receive notifications? For example, Whatsapp, Reddit or Email will still send alerts even on a freshly restarted smartphone where I definitely didn’t start the app manually.

How exactly does this work? Are, in a sense, all installed apps running in the background all the time, and in regular intervals asking their home server if there has been a notification? Does the notification somehow get sent to the Android system itself, which in turn activates the requested app on demand? At least on a PC I would expect that a program has to be running in order to send alerts, but maybe Android is completely different?

facebook messenger – Getting a ton of notifications when going back from flight mode

When I disable flight mode, I get all notifications for events that occured while the phone had been offline.

Typically that would be a couple of hundred facebook messenger messages.

The phone sounds like a machine gun for a while when it plays the notification sound repeatedly.

Is there a way to turn that off?

web app – Grouping in-app notifications based on where they come from, who triggered them, and what the actions are

I’m working on a project where I’m defining the UX for web in-app notifications. The app is quite similar to task management apps, kind of like Asana, Monday, etc. Now for example, if we have a user subscribing to notifications from 20 tasks, and other team members keep making changes on these tasks, the user is supposed to receive notifications for all these changes. What I’m trying to do here is reduce the number of notifications received by the user by grouping the notification based on where they come from (the task), who triggered the notifications (the user), and What is the notification type (Description edit, title edit, due date edit, etc.). For further clarification, If User X adds a subtask to task A, then user Y added another subtask 1 hour later to task A as well, the system could group these 2 notifications into a single one saying that User X & User Y added subtasks to task A. This way the system reduced 2 notifications into 1.

Does anyone know of a good guide or good rule of thumb on how I can design a system like that?
