    I have an Android game similar in genre to the Flabby Bird.

    How do I block new message (from sms / whatsapp) alerts from appearing at the top of the game when someone messages me? You can swipe to remove it but if messages keep coming in consistently it can be a big headache. Any help?

    Depending on your phone model and android version, but generally it's something like this : PHONE SETTINGS --> NOTIFICATIONS & STATUS BAR --> APP NOTIFICATIONS . From here, on it's up to you which App you wish to stop from showing messages; e.g. WA, then choose it, after that, MESSAGES --> untick which notifications you want to stop from showing.

    No other way? Is it possible that the game turns the 'Do Not Disturb' setting on when the game starts and back to the default user settings when the game exits?
