Now a day most of us start our day by checking the notifications on our phones. Every day we receive hundreds of notifications from different apps that are installed on our devices.
There are occasions where we delete some of those notifications without looking at them. Later on, we realized that those were some important notifications that we missed.
Google introduced notification history in Android 11 but if you are using Android 10 or the lower version then this article is for you. In this article, we will tell you two ways through which you can check the Notification log or history on Android 10 or lower.
We are sharing two methods as the first method might not work on every device. If your device’s OEM heavily customizes the android then there are chances that you have to use the second method.
