Rich Notification Support for Alfred iOS


You can do so much more with Alfred’s Motion Detection notifications now that Alfred iOS supports rich notifications! Here is a quick tour of the latest feature:

What do I need to make rich notifications work?

  1. The operating system of your Viewer device must be iOS 10 and above.
  2. Your Viewer must be running Alfred for iOS version 1.10.5 and above.

How can I take advantage of rich notifications?

When you receive a Motion Detection notification, rather than simply tapping it, you can now swipe left and choose View or use 3D Touch to expand the notification. You will see a snapshot of the Motion Event, which will give you an idea of what Alfred captured and help you decide the appropriate course of action.

Moreover, you will see command shortcuts that allow you to interact with Alfred more efficiently!

Extra feature for Alfred Premium members

There is one cool extra feature for Alfred Premium members: Motion Events will play in the expanded notifications so you don’t even have to launch the app to see what just happened!


If you have already updated Alfred on a device running iOS 10 and above but rich notifications don’t work as expected, try to sign out and sign in again.
