Basically he wants to know what notifications the led lights up for, by default? As in before any customizing, etc. What does the led notification light up for on stock?

I am curious about this as well. I've watched and watched for the light and it didn't come on for anything until I installed light flow, lol. So I am curious

The light comes on so long as you have it enabled in settings.
It also lights up in the color reflective to the app, usually..
For Hangouts, it's white.
Facebook, blue. Facebook messenger, green. Snapchat, Yellow. Etc.

Ticking 'Notification light' under 'Settings -> Display' is the requisite for your LED to work at all. As soon as you disable this no app should be able to trigger the LED signal again.

I suppose that the notification itself is not handled by the system because it doesn't appear for every notification. It's more like every app can take advantage of it. I don't know every app which is capable of using the LED - just some of them; but they have already been mentioned in this thread. Some apps don't support the LED notification light, some do and even let you customize its color.

If you want an all-in-one solution to customize colours for different apps I can recommend "Light Flow". I bought the paid version and I'm totally satisfied. Just be sure that those two options are activated, else the app can't control the notification light.

-> Settings -> Security -> Notification access -> Light Flow activated
-> Settings -> Accessibility -> Light Flow -> On

I didn't like Facebook messenger to be green. I turned it blue. WhatsApp is green, SnapChat is yellow and so on... Works like a charm for me :3

They both got lite versions so you can easily try and choose which one you like best. Would be great if there'd be an official solution from Google. A system app that is able to control the LED for every app But again: At this moment in time there are only apps in Play Store which can do this.
