Use stickers, emoji, and more to customize AOD

Samsung has been offering Always On Display (AOD) functionality on its mid-range and premium Galaxy phones for a few years now. It is a handy feature to have as you can check the date/time and know if you have any unread notifications with just a glance at your phone's screen. While the implementation was pretty bare bones when the feature first debuted, things have changed quite a bit in recent times. You can customize the AOD screen on your Galaxy phone with AR stickers, emoji, different clock styles, or even use a custom image.

With additional customization options and features, Always On Display is a lot more useful now compared to when it first debuted on the Galaxy S6 series. If you have a Galaxy A-series or S/Note/Fold series phone that launched in the last couple of years running One UI 4 (or even One UI 3), you can customize Always On Display as per your preference. However, some customization options might be missing depending on how old or new your Samsung phone is.

    With so many customization options, you can set up the Always On Display of your Galaxy phone just the way you like it. The best part is that Samsung keeps improving AOD with additional features and enhancements with regular software updates like only turning the display on for new notifications and new emoji stickers.
