Blink will always let you know about things that are important. You decide what important means by setting a default notification preference in your profile. This global preference can then be over-ridden on a per chat basis using the sidebar.
- Blink will notify you about every new message.
Mentions and Direct Messages Only
- Blink will only notify you if:
- You receive a new message direct from a Contact or a Bot
- Your name is @mentioned in the message
How to set these preferences
Simply click on your profile picture in the navigation bar and choose Notifications from the menu at the top of the screen as shown in the animation below. The settings are on that page.
Head into Chat info by clicking on the three dots in the top-right corner, on the settings page that appears, click on Notifications.
Simply click the settings button in the navbar and alter notification settings with the toggle.
