If you run the GroupAlarm App in version 2.2.0 or newer, you can instantly react to your incoming alarms by using the optional overlay. These are no longer only displayed as notifications, but immediately open the detailed view with all important information about the alarm. This is also possible when the display is switched off and on the lock screen.
To activate the overlay, a separate authorization is required.
Open the GroupAlarm app and go to the settings. There, activate the item "Show overlay" to be guided by the app to the system settings.
On Android 11 and newer, first select the GroupAlarm app and then go to the app settings.
There, you simply activate "Show overlay over other apps" and switch back to the GroupAlarm app with the Back button.
You will then immediately see whether the activation of the function was successful.
