What is Notification Snooze
Sometimes it may happen that a notification pops up at the time when you are unable to handle it, so you temporarily want to dismiss the notification so that it appears at the time when you are free to act upon it.
It is a highly useful feature as permanently dismissing a notification often results in forgetting about that particular notification. It also helps you to get rid of the stack and clutter of notification that compiles along the day and makes it hard to go through each one of them.
Snoozing notifications can provide you with ease of task management on your phone whenever you feel free enough.
