How do I use Moto Display?

Moto Display can show you a sneak peak of your notifications, even when your display is off, so you stay in the know without having to do a thing.

Tip: To enable all features and get optimized performance, visit the Play Store to ensure you are running the latest version of Moto.

When your screen sleeps, battery-friendly Moto Display notifications fade in and out, lighting only the pixels needed and showing notifications delivered since you last woke your screen. You can select which apps show notifications, set them to show or not during the night, and limit content to control your privacy.

If your phone has been still for a while, reach for it to trigger the Moto Display screen.

Moto Display does not show notifications:

  • At night, during hours you specify
  • When the phone is in your pocket or purse
  • When the phone is lying face down
  • When you are on a call

Respond to Moto Display notifications

From the Moto Display screen, you can:

  • Preview a notification. Touch & hold its icon.
  • Reply directly from a notification. Drag the notification icon to an action icon like , then enter and send a reply. (You can enable/disable this in Moto Display settings.)
  • Open the related app. Drag your finger up to the preview (then unlock if using a screen lock).

  • Dismiss a notification. Drag down to remove a notification.

  • Ignore for now. Drag your finger to the right or left edge of the screen to stop notifications from flashing until the next one is delivered.
