PLUS BEAT
An Alternative to Notification LED on OnePlus 6T

One Plus 6T is a beast but it lacks a notification LED. It's a tedious process to pick your phone up just to check if you have unread notifications. Plus Beat makes use of Ambient Display and generates pulses after regular time intervals. The time interval can be set by the user. The ambient display lits up if there is an unread notification.

Tested on: OnePlus 6/6T/5/5T/3/3T. Not tested on other phones but should work with any phone supporting Ambient Display and wake screen for new notifications. However, only OnePlus 6T is officially supported as that's the device I own


Features:
  • Set time interval for notification loop on ambient display
  • Per app configurable notifications - Choose apps to display notifications.
  • Hide or Show Notification content on per app basis - Show or hide notification content on per app basis/
  • Stealth Mode - Hide all the content and show notification in the form of the app icon.
  • DND Profiles - Add Do Not Disturb timings to pause Plus Beat.
  • Custom colors for notification icons.


Work in Progress Features:
  • Time interval for notification content display.
  • Time after which the app should stop showing notifications.
  • You tell me more

Plus Beat for OnePlus



Show the app some love by rating it 5 stars on the Play Store The app is always going to be free but you can help me buy a beer by donating few bucks

Please post feature requests, bugs, etc. and help me improve the app. Before posting bugs, please make sure:
  • Make sure 'Wake screen when you receive notifications' is enabled under Settings > Display > Ambient Display.
  • Make sure 'Plus Beat' is removed from Battery Optimizations. This is important for the app to function properly. Otherwise, the app might malfunction on reboot. OnePlus has strict policies on app start on boot. If it shows already 'Not optimizing', select optimize and reselect don't optimize. Restart the device and check if it's working. If the app doesn't work, please repeat this process.

Just downloaded hopefully this one can become the go to app for notifications that we need. Thank you.

Editne minor complaint and one suggestion off the get go

Complaint: minimum of 10 second pulse, personally I like the pulses around 3 seconds so I can see with a glance especially at work if I have a notification

Suggestion: implementation of per contact color of notifications, or at least give certain contacts a special color

This would be very specific as not all apps show notifications which have contacts in them like WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. Nice suggestion though. I'll think something on similar lines

Multiple notifications aren't possible because of the way Ambient Display works. It will always show the latest notification. The work on the app was actually started with this idea of multiple notifications but the Ambient Display itself doesn't support it

Oh that makes sense and no biggie was just an idea, faster pulse options would definitely be a good touch though. Also found something else that would be nice, a hex code box on the color chooser would be nice for those of us who want the color just right.

I think something like ""quite hours" would be nice. When you goes to bed and put your device next to it, is no fun to have phone which flashes screen every 10 sec

Keeping an eye on this as it is similar to pixel pulse. Glad to see we have options

Great app but if there any chance to include the clock in the pulse? I assume I can't be the only one that uses their phone as their bedside clock.
