Google has improved the notifications system on the Android OS a lot over the years, introducing various intuitive features along the way. Take, for instance, the ability to snooze them for a particular amount of time, or even block notifications from an app all together.

However, there is one particular option which Google has not yet implemented in its Android OS. We’re talking, of course, about the ability to view the history of all notifications you have received. Taking things a step further, we’d love to undo the action of dismissing one every so often.

So Many Apps, So Many Notifications

Many of us have multiple apps installed on our device, each of which sends out numerous notifications throughout the day. While a lot of people tend to view them almost immediately, some of us just dismiss them for the time being. Perhaps we think we’ll open the app and view them later, ultimately forgetting completely about them after a while.

Thankfully, there are a few simple solutions where you can not only view recently dismissed notifications but also view the entire history of those received on your device. It’s nice and easy and the best way to start.

The first solution is rather simple and works on most devices. To do it you simply have to add a settings widget to your home screen. Specifically, you’ll add the “notification log” to the phone’s main panel.
