Users are able to customise their Blink experience to best suit their needs by managing their preferences: notification settings, using the do-not-disturb feature, enabling compact or standard chat modes, and controlling temperature, language, and time zone settings.
This article will only cover navigation. Please see the referenced articles for each section for more information on that particular setting or preference.
What can I update?
🔔 Notification Settings
Users may select whether they'd like to be notified about everything or only mentions & direct messages. They can also choose their desktop notification sound when editing this on the desktop.
🚫 Do not disturb
💻 Desktop preferences
Only accessible through desktop version. Users can enable/disable the "compact chats" feature which hides message previews on the chats tab to allow more chats to fit on screen. This section also allows users to adjust their temperature preference to display as Celsius or Fahrenheit.
🔣 Language Settings
If you use Blink across multiple devices, you need to set the preferred language on each.
