Yes - this is something that we have heard loud and clear from the community. The LED can be enabled/disabled in the software and we should have a setting for that in the next update.
Good to hear, i’d love to be able to set it just for new notifications as well.
Just adding my voice to the chorus: I find notifications to be a completely passive activity - they exist as a list that I look at when I want to look at it, and to alert me (normally via my watch) when something new comes in, but other than that… no. I don’t want a light flashing 24/7 telling me that my phone has notifications. It always does.
Anyway, glad the request is heard, and looking forward to the update. It’s a very minor thing compared to the other more serious issues I’ve got with the 2e, but will still be a welcome improvement
Also looking forward to it! Thanks for looking into this
@Sharad Is there any update on this… My light is now flashing all the time screen, on or off. And none of the sliders in the settings make any changes…it just blinks all day every day… I’m temped to rip the phone apart and physically remove the led…
Hi @Chaz_Alberti - I have raised the priority for this setting addition (option to disable notification led). Will follow up soon.
Might be worth mentioning that the option is already there (search “light” in the settings - Notifications → Blink light), but it just doesn’t work to disable it.
Honestly, part of it is just not knowing what the light is trying to say. If I had to suggest a more user-friendly thing to do, an option to wake/light the lock screen when a notification makes a sound would be nice. A step further would be to isolate the notification that caused a sound alert, and display only that notification (but we can’t have everything, lol). When the phone makes a noise, it gets my attention and I look at it - would be nice if it’d display what it’s making noise about
At the moment, just a light that says “something is in the notification queue” is useless, as there’s always something (often many things) there. haha
is that changing light color on the terracube 2e?
I do not believe so, no.
Just to share a little bit on what I have realized. Seems anything in teracube 2e notification tray triggers the LED light. I just realized my Google weather forecast also can trigger it. As temporary solution for the bright LED light, I just put it upside down since the case corner can prevent the screen from touching the surface where I put the phone on.
Do I understand correctly that up to now there is no possibility to disable the LED? It is disturbing in the night. Always telling “Look at me Look at me”
Not yet. We have a code patch to disable the LED completely - will make its way to the next build.
I can’t believe this is still an issue that hasn’t been solved. I have to put the phone under a blanket to be able to sleep. Total fail! Please find a way for us to eliminate that in our 2e’s. Please.
