While the present version of android which is Android 7.0 Nougat gave the OS the ability to restrict background activities of applications whilst the phone is in a state of suspended animation. With the upcoming version Android O, Google is introducing additional automatic limits on what applications can do (or cannot do) in the background.
Notifications is the option which helps in notifying before opening the app actually. In the present Android 7.0 Nougat which has introduced a new slick interface for notifications along with several new features.
Android O aims to solve the notification issues with its new ‘notification channels’ feature, which gives app developers to group notifications together by their type. This feature will allows users to have a granular control on each channel. Ex: Users can decide how news based notifications will be displayed or how text alerts are displayed.
This feature can help you in differentiating the notifications as this can be segmented into different channels like sports news, text messages, music applications and so on and users can control each channel separately this is the major point in this. The notification shade will also group notifications by channel, making it much easier to glance through relevant notifications.

As this feature is already available on devices running Android TV.
