Silent and alert notifications

Android has two notification categories between apps: alert or silent. In the first case, your device emits sound or vibration, displays a message on the lock screen, and places an application icon at the top of the screen in the status bar. Silent notification, on the other hand, does not sound or vibrate alert. To view it, you need to swipe the screen from top to bottom.
