Front led light


Is there anyway to enable the front led light to notify of a missed call, or sms. Had this feature on my old Moto G 1st gen. Now have Moto G5 plus.


Hi @michaelt.tmwgox!

The Moto G5 Plus has the Moto Display feature which replaced the notification light. There may be a way to enable it with a root, but there is no toggle to enable it in settings. The light that is by the speaker is used to show that the phone is dead/charging in the event that the screen can’t be powered on. For the record, I liked the notification light too :wink: . I hope this helps!

Thank You for the information.


I have an E4 Plus and also miss the feature. Has anyone found an app that restores this feature?


Hi @ellies!

An app wouldn’t enable it. You would have to root your phone and really know what your doing to actually get it to do something. Even then, there is no guarantee that it would work. As I said before, I would really like to have the notification light as well!
