WOOD TV8 has made it easier for you to receive only the type of alerts you want from the WOOD TV8 news app.
When an Android or iOS user downloads the latest version of the app (which is free — download it here), they will be able to select what kind of alerts they would like to receive, like breaking news, traffic, closings and weather.
How to select alert categories
First, make sure that you have our latest app downloaded on your mobile device. That version is 5.16. Next, open the app and tap on the “More” button at the bottom of your screen.
Next, at the top of the menu screen, swipe the top line of options all the way to the left until you see the “Settings” button. Tap on that next.
Select the “Notification” tab at the top of the screen. Here, you can choose quiet time from our app alerts.
Finally, scroll all the way to the bottom of your screen and you will find eight different categories of alerts to receive. They are all set to “on” as the default before you make your selections. Make sure to tap on the “All Set” button to save your selections.
