This page covers usage of select commissioning API features in the Google Home Mobile SDK.
Suppress commissionable discovery notifications
By default, Google Play services on Android uses "halfsheet" notifications that covers the bottom half of a mobile device's screen to provide users with a proactive indication that commissionable Matter devices are nearby.
To suppress these notifications to prevent
interruptions while your app is in the foreground, call the
method in the Mobile SDK. See the API documentation for more
The suppression enabled by this API times out if your app is in the foreground
for more than 15 minutes. To re-enable suppression after a timeout, call
suppressHalfSheetNotification() again, otherwise halfsheet notifications will
start to appear.
An implementation of this API can be found in the Google Home Sample App for Matter. See GitHub for more information.
