How to Customize Android LED Notifications (No Root Required)

Your Android LED tells you a lot about your notifications. Different colors correspond to different app notifications, making it easy to see which program is trying to get your attention.

Snapchat notifications are yellow, for example, while SMS and email notifications trigger a blue LED.

Today, we’re going to show you how to easily customize your Nexus 5 LED notifications without rooting your device. You can follow this guide to control all notifications

Step 1) Download an app called Light Flow Lite here

Step 2) Install the app

Step 3) Open Light Flow Lite and enable the Notification feature

Step 4) From the main page of the app, you should see various commands and options, including Settings, Notifications, Tools, Volume, and more. Start by tapping Notifications.

Step 5) Tap on whichever app you want to change

Step 6) From this menu, you can change all three ways in which an app notifies you: notification, light, and sound. You can enable or disable the light, change its color, duration, flash rate, and more.

I like Light Flow Lite because it has a simple, easy-to-understand interface. It doesn’t require you to edit complex controls and everything can be modified directly from the app’s settings menu.
