You can see your Android notification history on Android 11 through the Settings app.
You first need to turn on Notification history in your phone’s notification settings.
You will then be able to see all the alerts you dismissed in the past 24 hours.
Clearing notifications is a double-edged sword; there’s a satisfying sense of accomplishment to dismissing them, but every once in a while, you might be overeager and discard a notification you needed to read in more detail.
If you have ever deleted a notification a moment before you realized you needed it, Android 11 has a handy feature. Its notification history lets you browse dismissed alerts from the previous 24 hours. Here’s how to enable and view it.
How to enable your Android notification history on Android 11
Before you can begin using Android 11’s Notification history, you need to turn it on.
1. Open the Settings app and tap Notifications.
2. Tap Advanced Settings.
3. Tap Notification history.
4. When you first come to this page, it should be empty except for the toggle on the top right. Turn on Notification history by taping the toggle.
Turn on notification history by tapping on the toggle.
Quick tip: Another way to view your notification history is to download and install the Notification History Log app on your Android device.

After you enable the notification history, recently dismissed notifications will populate this same page. To see your notification history, just come back:
1. Open the Settings app, then tap Notifications.
2. Tap Advanced settings.
3. Tap Notification History.
Once enabled, you can see and interact with your recently dismissed notifications.
Quick tip: You can also find notifications that you snoozed in your Notification History. That way, you can check them before the snooze period is over.
You should see all the recently dismissed notifications (anything from the last 24 hours). You can interact with the notification by tapping it, just as if it were in the phone’s pull-down notification shade.
