We are excited to announce eyes-free, real-time inbound message notifications. With this feature, you can hear text messages, emails, Facebook Messages, WhatsApp, and more while your favorite media channel streams in either foreground or background. These channels include:

- Music apps like Spotify, Apple Music, and Pandora
- Podcast or news apps, such as Overcast or Apple Podcast
- O6 app channel such as email, twitter, NPR One, or Pocket

You can listen to Notifications even when the phone is locked!

To use this feature, please launch O6 App once. Then you can go back to the Home Screen or start any audio app such as Spotify or Podcast player to listen to inbound notifications. Please note that O6 must be connected for this feature to work. 


If music is playing, during an incoming notification such as a text message, the music volume will be temporarily reduced (audio-ducking) and the notification will be narrated.

If you are listening to podcasts, then the podcast will be temporarily paused while your notification is narrated. Press the ring button to dismiss the notification anytime and resume playback.
