How do I turn off the news notifications?


#1

When I press the power button on my phone I see the status of my wireless, gmail message notifications, and news announcements from CNN, The Associated Press, etc. How do I turn off receiving the news announcements/notifications?

Moto X original, Android 5.1

Thank you.

You need to find out which app is pushing the notification [to do this you need to long press the notification] then block or change the notification s settings of that app

Thank you. The app is apparently Google Play Newsstand. When I long pressed the notification, there was the name of the app and a gear. Pressing the gear took me to the app’s settings page, where it seems I was able to disable the news nofifications. Appreciation. Brett
