info
Currently, you can only customize your channel notifications in the Status mobile app.

When using the Status app, you can customize how you receive notifications in direct messages (DMs), group chats or communities.

For example, you may want to receive notifications for mentions in group chats but not in communities, or you may want to receive DM notifications only in the Status notification center.

Here are the notifications you can customize:

NotificationsDescription
Personal mentions

Messages that specifically mention you. For example, someone tags you in a group chat.

Global mentions

Messages directed to the entire community. For example, an announcement in a channel or group chat tagged with "@everyone" or "@here" that notifies all members.

All other messages

Any message that isn't a Personal or Global Mention. For example, a message in a group chat or channel you're in that isn't tagged with your name or isn't an announcement.

tip
You can further customize the notifications you receive using exceptions.
