Even if you have only installed a few extra apps on your Google Pixel 4A, you are probably receiving at least a couple of notifications every day.
Sometimes you may tap on those notifications if something catches your eye, but other notifications might get ignored.
You can view all of your notifications by swiping down from the top of the screen. This notification center is a good place to go when you saw a notification a while ago and are ready to interact with it.
But you may find that there are too many notifications to manage individually, and you might prefer to just get rid of them all.
You can remove all of your notifications on a Google Pixel 4A by swiping down from the top of the screen, scrolling to the bottom of the notification list, then touching the Clear all button.
This is a helpful way to clean up some of the information overload that can occur on smartphones, and it can help you to make sure that you can easily find the notifications that are most important to you by deleting the old ones that you didn’t want or need.
