I wanted to turn off notifications for text messages from some senders. This has changed over the years. Here’s how it works on my phone today. I think I’m on Android 8 (Oreo).

  • Navigate to the list of conversations in Messages
  • Open a thread with the desired sender
  • Click the menu icon (3 dots)
  • Choose Details
  • Choose Notifications
  • Turn off the “Show notifications” switch
