Android system lock screen setting

Just a quick note, different brand, and models of Android devices may have slightly different settings, but the general principle is similar. As long as you understand how it usually works, you should be able to find your way to the same interface eventually. 

Step 1: Access the Settings of your device. You can do so by dragging down the notification bar and tapping on the cog icon on the top right corner of the bar for quick access. Otherwise, you can swipe to where the Setting is on the home screen. 

Step 2 : Locate Sound & notification within the Settings and tap on it. Scroll down to the Notification part. 

Step 3: From here on, you can choose to hide or show all notifications, including text messages notification.


Depending on the model of your device, the system might have further customization choices such as which notification priority. If your device has one of these built-in functions, set the texting app to the highest priority to show text messages on the lock screen.

Echo notification Lockscreen

As mentioned above, certain models could only have a limited extent of customizable features for text messages on the lock screen. Thus, third-party apps are needed to rectify such limitations. For this article, we recommend Echo Notification Lockscreen, which can be downloaded at our site milagromobilemarketing.


It has almost everything you may expect a lock screen notification app to have. However, the swiping right is the one that is worth mentioning the most. 

Swiping the notification the left in most Android devices is to make it go away only. On the contrary, below is what you can do with the swiping right action of Echo Notification Lockscreen.


One hour 

Sometimes you might be busy with something else when you receive the important text, and are worried that you might forget to check back later. Pressing the convenient one hour option would set the device to remind you of the text an hour later. 


Perhaps you would like a reminder of the text message after you leave work or a particular location. The Out option prompts the text message notification to resurface on the screen after your GPS determines that you have left the vicinity. 

Note: The app not only does whatever else the default text notification system would do but also offers many more features. In fact, it is so feature-rich that it is virtually impossible to list them all in 2000 words.

Above is everything you need to know on how to show text messages on lock screen Android.
