    How to Customize News Alerts in the NBC 6 App

    What to Know

    • The newest version of our app features personalized news alerts that let you select categories and topics that matter most to you

    • You can select from Breaking News, News, Watch Live, Commuter Alerts and Program Alerts as well as First Alert Weather.

    Our latest app update allows you to select the categories of news alerts you want to get from NBC 6 on your device. We’ve included topics that matter most to you, based on your feedback.

    You can select from Breaking News, News, Watch Live, Commuter Alerts and Program Alerts as well as First Alert Weather

    To personalize your notifications, first check "Allow Notifications” when you download the new app. Click on the hamburger menu and then hit the gear icon in the app. On iOS devices, select Alert Settings under Notifications.

    Once Android devices are released in the near future, select Alert Settings under Alerts.

    The news alert categories will automatically be on if you allowed notifications on your device. Make your selections by toggling the blue button off or on next to each topic.

    Breaking News will give you alerts about the latest and most urgent stories of the day in your region, U.S. and the world.

    News alerts are for non-urgent stories about important topics and issues.

    Watch Live notifications will alert you to live events and newscasts.

    Commuter Alerts will deliver the latest information on major road closures, and crashes and mass transit problems.

    First Alert Weather notifications are from the NBC 6 weather team and give you the most accurate forecast as well as up to a six minute advantage when severe weather is in your area.

    You can also sign up for automatic alerts from the National Weather Service for severe weather, lightning or precipitation.

    If you don’t see these options in the app settings, make sure you have version 5.8 or later on your device.

    We hope you enjoy our new app (Download it here for iOS and Android). Please rate it in the app store and send us your feedback to WTVJdigitalfeedback@nbcuni.com.
