New Android 8 notification

Recommended Posts

This isn't a problem as such, but since Android 8 dropped on my Pixel, I get a permanent notification on the lock screen/notification shade from "Android system" saying "Sync is running in the background". I guess this is some new feature of Android 8 to highlight potentially battery-draining background apps, but it's not a useful notification to me for Sync; I know Sync is running in the background, it's supposed to be running, and I'd really like to not have a permanent notification about it cluttering up my screen.

I have found an app that hides those notifications, but as far as I can tell, it turns them off for all applications, whereas I would like to turn the notification off just for Sync. Do you guys know about this?
