Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] This application relates to the field of information technologies, and in particular, to a notification processing method and apparatus.

BACKGROUND



[0002] When a user is using a terminal device such as a mobile phone or a tablet computer, in many cases, the terminal device frequently receives all sorts of push notifications, specific to various applications installed on the terminal device, sent from network servers corresponding to the applications, and displays the notifications in real time. When the terminal device constantly receives notifications, the user sequentially removes the notifications displayed by the terminal device, to eliminate interference to the user. For example, when the user is using a first application, the terminal device may receive a plurality of notifications that are pushed by a network server to the first application or another application. In order to avoid impact on usage of the first application, the user needs to continuously remove these notifications. Consequently, experience of the user when using the first application is affected.

[0003] Currently, to reduce interference caused by a notification to a user, a terminal device is configured with a delay setting function, which enables the user to change a time of displaying a notification, so that the terminal device displays the notification after a delay time set by the user. Specifically, when the user is interfered with by the notification, each time the terminal device displays a notification, the user may enter a delay setting page, to set a display time interval of the notification to be prolonged by 15 minutes, 30 minutes, or 1 hour, so that after a next notification of the received and displayed current notification reaches the terminal device, the next notification is displayed after delay duration that is set by the terminal device.

[0004] However, in the foregoing method, delayed displaying of a notification requires a manual setting of the user each time. Apparently, user experience is poor by using the foregoing inflexible method for implementing delayed displaying of a notification by relying on a user setting.

[0036] To describe the technical solutions in the embodiments of this application more clearly, the following describes, in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings, the notification processing method and apparatus provided in the embodiments of this application.

[0037] The embodiments of this application provide a notification processing method and apparatus that are applicable to a terminal device. The terminal device in the embodiments of this application may be a device such as a mobile phone, a tablet computer, a PDA, a POS, or a vehicle-mounted computer.

[0038] FIG. 1 is a structural block diagram of a part of a terminal device related to the embodiments of this application. Referring to FIG. 1, the terminal device 100 includes components such as a radio frequency (radio frequency, RF) circuit 110, a power supply 120, a processor 130, a memory 140, an input unit 150, a display unit 160, and a wireless fidelity (wireless fidelity, WiFi) module 170. A person skilled in the art may understand that a structure of the terminal device 100 shown in FIG. 1 does not constitute any limitation on the terminal device 100. The terminal device 100 may include more or fewer components than those shown in the figure, or may combine some components, or have a different component arrangement.

[0039] The following describes each constituent component of the terminal device 100 in detail with reference to FIG. 1.

[0040] The RF circuit 110 may be configured to receive and send data in an information receiving and sending process or a call process. Particularly, after receiving downlink data from a base station, the RF circuit 110 sends the downlink data to the processor 130 for processing. In addition, the RF circuit 110 sends to-be-sent uplink data to the base station. The RF circuit 110 usually includes but is not limited to an antenna, at least one amplifier, a transceiver, a coupler, a low noise amplifier (low noise amplifier, LNA), a duplexer, and the like. In addition, the RF circuit 110 may further communicate with a network and another device through wireless communication. The wireless communication may use any communications standard or protocol, including but not limited to a global system for mobile communications (global system for mobile communications, GSM), a general packet radio service (general packet radio service, GPRS), code division multiple access (code division multiple access, CDMA), wideband code division multiple access (wideband code division multiple access, WCDMA), long term evolution (long term evolution, LTE), an email, a short message service (short messaging service, SMS), and the like.

[0041] The memory 140 may be configured to store a software program and a module. The processor 130 executes various function applications of the terminal device 100 and processes data by running the software program and the module that are stored in the memory 140. Optionally, the memory 140 may mainly include a program storage area and a data storage area. The program storage area may store an operating system, various application programs (such as an SMS application and WeChat), and the like. The data storage area may store data created based on use of the terminal device 100, and the like. In addition, the memory 140 may include a high-speed random access memory, and may further include a nonvolatile memory, such as at least one magnetic disk storage component, a flash memory, or another volatile solid-state storage component.

[0042] The input unit 150 may be configured to receive entered digits or character information, and generate a key signal input related to a user setting and function control of the terminal device 100. Specifically, the input unit 150 may include a touch panel 151 and other input devices 152.

[0043] The touch panel 151, also referred to as a touchscreen, may collect a touch operation (for example, an operation performed by a user on or near the touch panel 151 by using any suitable object or accessory such as a finger or a stylus) performed by the user on or near the touch panel 151, and drive a corresponding connection apparatus based on a preset program. Optionally, the touch panel 151 may include two parts: a touch detection apparatus and a touch controller. The touch detection apparatus detects a touch direction and position of the user, detects a signal brought by the touch operation, and transmits the signal to the touch controller. The touch controller receives touch information from the touch detection apparatus, converts the touch information into touch point coordinates, then sends the touch point coordinates to the processor 130, and receives and executes a command sent by the processor 130. For example, when the user flicks up, on the touch panel 151 by using a finger, a notification displayed on the display panel 161, to remove the notification, the touch detection apparatus detects a signal brought by the flicking-up operation, and then transmits the signal to the touch controller. The touch controller converts the signal into coordinates and sends the coordinates to the processor 130. The processor 130 determines, based on the coordinates and a type (flicking up) of the signal, the operation (removal operation) performed on the notification, and then the processor 130 instructs not to display the notification.

[0044] In addition, the touch panel 151 may be implemented in a plurality of types, such as a resistive type, a capacitive type, an infrared type, and a surface acoustic wave type.

[0045] Optionally, the other input devices 152 may include, but are not limited to, one or more of a physical keyboard, a function key (such as a volume control key or a power on/off key), a trackball, a mouse, and a joystick.

[0046] The display unit 160 may be configured to display information entered by the user, information provided for the user, and various menus of the terminal device 100. As a display system of the terminal device 100, the display unit 160 is configured to present a user interface, to implement man-machine interaction. For example, after receiving various notifications that are pushed by network servers corresponding to various applications installed on the terminal device 100 to the applications, the RF circuit 110 sends the various notifications to the processor 130. The processor 130 then displays the various notifications by using the display unit 160, to present the user with the various notifications.

[0047] The display unit 160 may include a display panel 161. Optionally, the display panel 161 may be configured in a form of a liquid crystal display (liquid crystal display, LCD), an organic light-emitting diode (organic light-emitting diode, OLED), or the like. Further, the touch panel 151 may cover the display panel 161. After detecting a touch operation on or near the touch panel 151, the touch panel 151 transfers related information about the touch operation to the processor 130 to determine a type of the touch event. Subsequently, the processor 130 provides corresponding visual output on the display panel 161 based on the type of the touch event. For example, when detecting a flicking-up operation performed by the user on a notification on the touch panel 151, the touch panel 151 transmits information about the flicking-up operation to the processor 130. After determining that a type of the touch event is flicking-up, the processor 130 does not display the notification on the display panel 161, to implement visual output from a displayed notification to a notification that is not displayed.

[0048] In FIG. 1, the touch panel 151 and the display panel 161 are used as two independent components to implement input and output functions of the terminal device 100. However, in some embodiments, the touch panel 151 and the display panel 161 may be integrated to implement the input and output functions of the terminal device 100.

[0049] Wi-Fi is a short-distance wireless transmission technology. The terminal device 100 may be connected to an access point (access point, AP) by using the Wi-Fi module 170, to implement access to a data network. The Wi-Fi module 170 may be configured to receive and send data in a process of communicating with another device.

[0050] The processor 130 is a control center of the terminal device 100, is connected to each part of the entire terminal device 100 by using various interfaces and lines, and executes various functions of the terminal device 100 and processes data by running or executing a software program and/or a module stored in the memory 140 and invoking data stored in the memory 140, to implement a plurality of services that are based on the terminal device 100. Optionally, the processor 130 may include one or more processing units. Specifically, an application processor and a modem processor may be integrated into the processor 130. The application processor mainly processes an operating system, a user interface, an application, and the like. The modem processor mainly processes wireless communication. It can be understood that the modem processor may alternatively not be integrated into the processor 130.

[0051] The terminal device 100 further includes the power supply 120 (such as a battery) that supplies power to each component. Optionally, the power supply 120 may be logically connected to the processor 130 through a power supply management system, to implement functions such as charging management, discharging management, and power consumption management through the power supply management system.

[0052] It should be noted that, although not shown in FIG. 1, the terminal device 100 may further include a camera, a Bluetooth module, an audio circuit, a loudspeaker, a microphone, a sensor, and the like. Details are not described herein.

[0053] The notification processing method provided in the embodiments of this application is applicable to the terminal device 100 shown in FIG. 1. Therefore, in the embodiments of this application, the terminal device 100 is merely used as an example for description. Referring to FIG. 2, an embodiment of this application provides a notification processing method, and a specific procedure of the method includes the following steps.

[0054] Step 201: The terminal device 100 receives a notification.
Usually, a plurality of applications (for example, various video applications and WeChat) are installed on the terminal device 100, and network servers corresponding to the plurality of applications pushes various notifications to the plurality of applications. The RF circuit 110 of the terminal device 100 receives various notifications pushed by the network servers to the plurality of applications. In other words, the terminal device 100 receives any notification that is received by using the foregoing procedure. The RF circuit 110 of the terminal device 100 subsequently sends the various notifications to the processor 130 of the terminal device 100. The processor 130 then displays the various notifications by using the display unit 160 of the terminal device 100. For example, as shown in FIG. 3, the terminal device displays a notification. The notification may be displayed in a manner preset by a user, for example, displayed in a form of a banner notification, a reminder notification, or the like. Specifically, referring to FIG. 3, the banner notification is a notification that is displayed on the top of a screen of the terminal device and automatically disappears after fixed duration; while the reminder notification is a notification that is continuously displayed on the top of the screen of the terminal device.

[0055] In a specific implementation, the terminal device 100 may receive a notification in, but not limited to, the following two scenarios:

Scenario 1: The terminal device 100 receives a notification in a preset scenario. The preset scenario may be but is not limited to any one of the following scenarios: the terminal device 100 is in a full-screen display state (excluding a lock screen and a home screen); or the terminal device 100 is in a state of displaying a preset user interface of an application.
For example, when the user watches a video by using a video application or browses a shopping page by using a shopping application, the terminal device 100 is usually in a full-screen display state.
For another example, the terminal device 100 presets a user interface of an application, for example, a user interface of a game application or a user interface of a video application as the preset user interface of an application. When the user plays a game by using a game application or watches a video by using a video application, the terminal device 100 is in a state of displaying the preset user interface of an application.

Scenario 2: The terminal device 100 receives a notification in real time in a power-on state.
For example, in this scenario, provided that the terminal device 100 is in a power-on state, the terminal device 100 receives a notification in real time in any of the following cases: a lock screen state, a home screen display state, or a state of switching between user interfaces of several applications.



[0056] Step 202: The terminal device 100 determines whether the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which the notification is received.

[0057] In actual application, when the terminal device 100 constantly displays various received notifications, causing interference to the user and affecting current experience of the user, the user constantly removes the various notifications displayed by the terminal device 100. The user removes the notification in a plurality of manners, for example, flicking up the notification, flicking left the notification and tapping "delete", or another manner. The foregoing operations are all removal operations performed by the user. For example, FIG. 4 shows removal performed by the user by flicking-up a notification displayed by the terminal device, namely, a removal operation performed by the user.

[0058] Specifically, a same method for removing the notification by the terminal device 100 is used in either of the foregoing two scenarios, described in step 201, in which the terminal device 100 receives a notification. A specific method may be as follows:
After the terminal device 100 displays the received notification, when the input unit 150 of the terminal device 100 receives an instruction of a removal operation from the user for removing the notification, the input unit 150 sends the instruction to the processor 130 of the terminal device 100. The processor 130 stops displaying the notification, that is, the terminal device 100 responds to the removal operation of the user.

[0059] In an optional implementation, the preset duration may be specifically set according to an actual status. Specifically, the preset duration may be fixed duration, for example, one hour, one day, one week, or one month. In the first scenario, that is mentioned above, in which the terminal device 100 receives a notification, the preset duration may be duration from a moment at which the terminal device 100 enters the preset scenario to a moment at which the terminal device 100 receives the notification. In addition, the preset duration certainly may alternatively be set according to a plurality of cases. This is not limited in this application.

[0060] In an optional implementation, a flag may be preset for the removal operation in the terminal device 100 to indicate whether the user performs a removal operation. Specifically, it may be specified that a preset flag of 1 indicates that the user performs a removal operation, and a preset flag of 0 indicates that the user does not perform a removal operation. In specific implementation, when the terminal device 100 displays a notification and the notification is removed by the user, the terminal device 100 detects a removal operation performed on the notification, the terminal device 100 may set the preset flag to 1, indicating that the user performs a removal operation. When the terminal device 100 displays a notification, and the user performs a specified operation (for example, an operation of tapping to open the notification) other than a removal operation on the notification, the terminal device 100 detects the specified operation on the notification, and may set the preset flag to 0, indicating that the user does not perform a removal operation.

[0061] In an optional implementation, when the terminal device 100 displays a notification and the notification is removed by the user, the terminal device 100 detects a removal operation performed by the user, 1 is added to a quantity of removal operations performed by the user. When the terminal device 100 displays a notification, the user performs a specified operation (for example, an operation of tapping to open the notification) other than a removal operation on the notification, and the terminal device 100 detects the specified operation performed on the notification, the terminal device 100 resets the quantity of removal operations performed by the user to zero. In this way, the terminal device determines whether the quantity of removal operations performed by the user is zero, to determine whether the user performs a removal operation. To be specific, when the quantity of removal operations performed by the user is not zero, the terminal device determines that the user performs a removal operation; while when the quantity of removal operations performed by the user is zero, the terminal device determines that the user does not perform a removal operation.

[0062] In an optional implementation, in a case that the preset duration is fixed duration, when the terminal device 100 displays a notification and the notification is removed by the user, the terminal device 100 may use storage duration as the preset duration for the removed notification, store a processed notification into a database, where the storage duration is duration for which the processed notification is stored in the database. When the processed notification is stored for a time of the preset duration, the stored notification is cleared. When the terminal device 100 displays a notification, the user performs a specified operation (for example, an operation of tapping to open the notification) other than a removal operation on the notification, and the terminal device 100 detects the specified operation performed on the notification, the terminal device clears all notifications stored in the database. In this way, the terminal device 100 may query the database, and count a quantity of notifications stored in the database. It may be considered that by means of the counted quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration, whether the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration can further be determined by determining whether the quantity of removal operations performed by the user is zero.

[0063] Optionally, that the terminal device 100 determines whether the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration may be specifically but is not limited to the following three cases:

Case 1: The terminal device 100 determines whether the user performs a removal operation on any displayed notification within the preset duration.
In the foregoing case 1, when the user does not want to receive any notification, the user removes any notification displayed by the terminal device 100. For example, the first case is usually applicable to the following scenarios: a scenario in which the terminal device 100 is in a lock screen state or in a state of displaying a home screen; or a scenario in which the terminal device 100 is in a full-screen display state because the user is watching a video by using the terminal device 100 or the user is playing a game by using the terminal device 100.

Case 2: The terminal device 100 determines a notification source of the notification, and determines whether a removal operation is performed on the notification from the notification source within the preset duration.
In the foregoing case 2, when a removal operation is performed on the notification from the notification source within the preset duration, in this case, the user merely does not want to receive the notification from the notification source, and therefore the user removes the notification, from the notification source, displayed by the terminal device 100.
Optionally, the notification source of the notification is a first application or a specified contact of a second application, and either of the first application and the second application is any one of at least one application installed on the terminal device.
For example, the terminal device 100 determines that a notification source of the notification is microblog, a news application, or the like. Using microblog as an example, the terminal device 100 determines whether a removal operation is performed on a notification from microblog within the preset duration. If the terminal device 100 determines that a removal operation is performed, it indicates that the user merely does not want to receive a notification from microblog within the preset duration, and the user constantly removes a notification from microblog. Subsequently, the terminal device 100 proceeds to step 203. If the terminal device 100 determines that a removal operation is not performed, it indicates that the user does not mind receiving a notification from microblog in real time, and then the terminal device 100 instructs to normally display the notification.
For another example, the terminal device 100 determines that a notification source of the notification is a specified contact in an application such as WeChat, QQ, an SMS application, or the like that includes a plurality of contacts. Using WeChat as an example, the terminal device 100 determines whether a removal operation is performed on a notification from a specified contact in WeChat within the preset duration. If the terminal device 100 determines that a removal operation is performed, it indicates that the user merely does not want to receive a notification from the specified contact in WeChat within the preset duration, and the user constantly removes a notification from the specified contact in WeChat. Subsequently, the terminal device 100 proceeds to step 203. If the terminal device 100 determines that a removal operation is not performed, it indicates that the user does not mind receiving a notification from the specified contact in WeChat in real time, and then the terminal device 100 instructs to normally display the notification. The specified contact may be a person, or may be a contact group including a plurality of contacts, or the like. For example, when the notification source is a specified contact in WeChat, the specified contact may be "Alice", or may be "Class xx". For another example, when the notification source is an SMS application, the specified contact may be "Bob", or may be "xx contact group".
In an optional implementation, a specific method for determining, by the terminal device 100, a notification source of the notification may be as follows:
When the notification source is the first application, the terminal device 100 may find out, by analyzing an application identifier or application attribute information of an application to which the notification belongs, a specific application that is the first application (namely, the notification source). Specifically, a package name of a data packet of the notification may be used to identify the application identifier. For example, if the terminal device 100 determines that an application identifier corresponding to a package name of the notification is a microblog identifier, the terminal device 100 determines that the notification source is microblog.
When the notification source is a specified contact of the second application, the terminal device 100 may first find out, by analyzing an application identifier or application attribute information of an application to which the notification belongs, a specific application that is the second application, and then analyze content information of the notification and/or included contact details of the notification, to determine a specified contact (namely, the notification source) of the second application. For example, after determining, by means of analysis, that the second application is WeChat, the terminal device 100 determines, by using content information of the notification, that the notification is a notification from a contact A or a notification from a group chat A in WeChat, and further determine that the specified contact of the second application is the contact A in WeChat or the group chat A in WeChat. For another example, after determining, by means of analysis, that the second application is an SMS application, the terminal device 100 determines, by analyzing contact details included in the notification, that the notification is a notification from "Bob" in the SMS application. Specifically, the terminal device 100 may match the contact details included in the notification and a phone number of a contact prestored in the memory 140 of the terminal device 100, to determine that a matched contact is "Bob".

Case 3: The terminal device 100 determines a priority of the notification, and determines whether a removal operation is performed, within the preset duration, on a notification whose priority is higher than the determined priority.



[0064] Specifically, in the foregoing case 3, the terminal device 100 presets priorities of notifications, and the terminal device 100 may compare priorities of the notifications based on the preset priorities of the notifications.

[0065] For example, the terminal device 100 presets that a priority of a notification from WeChat is higher than a priority of a notification from an express application, and a priority of a notification from an express application is higher than a priority of a notification from a news application. According to this priority setting, when the notification is a notification from a news application, the terminal device 100 needs to determine whether a removal operation is performed on a notification from WeChat and/or a notification from an express application within the preset duration. If a removal operation is performed on a notification from WeChat and/or a notification from an express application within the preset duration, the terminal device 100 proceeds to step 203. If a removal operation is not performed on a notification from WeChat and/or a notification from an express application within the preset duration, the terminal device 100 instructs to normally display the notification from the news application.

[0066] Step 203: The terminal device 100 determines a delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration, and instructs to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value.

[0067] In an optional implementation, the terminal device 100 determines whether the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which the notification is received, and determines a delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration. Specifically, the following two methods may be included.

[0068] Method 1: The terminal device 100 obtains a quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration, and determines a delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations.

[0069] According to the descriptions in the foregoing step 202, when the terminal device 100 obtains the quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration, the terminal device 100 may directly query an accumulated value of a quantity of removal operations obtained after 1 is added, when the terminal device 100 detects a removal operation performed by the user, to the quantity of removal operations performed by the user, where the queried accumulated value of the quantity of removal operations is the obtained quantity of removal operations. The terminal device 100 may further count, by querying a database, a quantity of notifications stored in the database, where the counted quantity is the obtained quantity of removal operations.

[0070] Optionally, the terminal device 100 may perform the method 1 by using the following steps: the terminal device obtains a quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration; and determines, in response to determining that the quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration is greater than or equal to 1, a delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations.

[0071] In an optional implementation, a specific method for determining, by the terminal device 100, the delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations may be as follows:

A1: The terminal device 100 determines a specified quantity threshold range to which the quantity of removal operations belongs, and queries, based on a preset correspondence between a specified quantity threshold range and a delay duration value, a delay duration value corresponding to the determined specified quantity threshold range.

A2: The terminal device 100 determines, based on a preset correspondence between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value, the delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations.

A3: The terminal device 100 determines, based on a preset function relationship between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value, the delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations. The function relationship may be as follows: the delay duration value is a proportional function of the quantity of removal operations, the delay duration value is an exponential function of the quantity of removal operations, or the like. This is not limited in this application.



[0072] In actual application, the quantity, of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration, obtained by the terminal device 100 represents a degree of how much the user does not want to receive a notification. To be specific, a larger quantity of removal operations indicates a higher degree that the user does not want to receive a notification.

[0073] In an optional implementation, the memory 140 of the terminal device 100 stores the preset correspondence between a specified quantity threshold range and a delay duration value, or the preset correspondence between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value, or the preset function relationship between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value, to enable the terminal device 100 to determine a delay duration value corresponding to the quantity of removal operations, and further instruct to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value.

[0074] Specifically, the preset correspondence between a specified quantity threshold range and a delay duration value or the preset correspondence between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value may be stored in the memory 140 in a form of a table. For example, the preset correspondence between a specified quantity threshold range and a delay duration value may be as shown in the following Table 1, and the preset correspondence between a quantity of removal operations and a delay duration value may be as shown in the following Table 2.
Table 1 Correspondence between a preset quantity threshold range and a delay duration value
Specified quantity threshold range/timesDelay duration value/minutes

··· ···
··· ···


[0075] It can be learned from the Table 1 and Table 2 that a larger quantity of removal operations indicates a larger corresponding delay duration value. To be specific, a larger specified quantity of removal operations indicates a higher degree that the user does not want to receive a notification. Therefore, the terminal device 100 may predict psychological feelings of the user based on the obtained quantity of removal operations, so that the terminal device 100 subsequently instructs to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value, to adapt to psychology of the user.

[0076] Method 2: The terminal device 100 determines whether the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which the notification is received, and obtains a preset delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration.

[0077] In the method 2, the preset delay duration value obtained by the terminal device 100 in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration is a fixed value. In other words, provided that it is determined that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration, the delay duration value subsequently used for instructing to delay displaying the notification is a fixed value. A preset delay duration value may be specifically set according to an actual status of the user. This is not limited in this application.

[0078] Optionally, the terminal device 100 may perform the foregoing method 2 by using the following two methods:

B1. The terminal device 100 obtains a quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration, and obtains a preset delay duration value in response to determining that the quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration is not zero. A method for obtaining, by the terminal device 100, a quantity of removal operations is the same as that in the foregoing method 1, and details are not described herein again.

B2. The terminal device 100 queries a preset flag of a removal operation, and obtains a preset delay duration value in response to determining that the preset flag is 1.



[0079] The following makes further description by separately using examples for instructing to display the notification after a delay time of a delay duration value that is determined based on the method 1 and the method 2.

[0080] Example 1: The schematic diagram shown in FIG. 5 is used as an example to describe a case in which the delay duration value is determined by using the method 1.

[0081] T1 in FIG. 5 represents a moment at which the terminal device 100 receives a notification 1, and duration between T1 and a previous moment T0 is the preset duration. Assuming that the terminal device 100 determines that a quantity of removal operations performed by the user between T0 and T1 is three, and further determines that a delay duration value corresponding to three times of removal operations is 10 minutes (for example, it can be obtained by querying Table 1 or Table 2), the terminal device 100 may instruct to delay the notification 1 for 10 minutes, and display the notification 1 at a moment T2, that is, duration between T1 and T2 shown in FIG. 5 is 10 minutes, and a notification 1' is the notification 1 displayed after a delay time of 10 minutes.

[0082] Example 2: The schematic diagram shown in FIG. 6 is used as an example to describe a case in which the delay duration value is determined by using the method 2.

[0083] T3 in FIG. 6 represents a moment at which the terminal device 100 receives a notification 2, and duration between T3 and a previous moment T4 is the preset duration. Assuming that the terminal device 100 determines that a preset flag of a removal operation between T3 and T4 is 1, and a preset delay duration value is directly obtained and is five minutes (which is a fixed value and is used as an example only for description). The terminal device 100 may instruct to delay the notification 2 for five minutes, and display the notification 2 at a moment T5, that is, duration between T3 and T5 shown in FIG. 6 is five minutes, and a notification 2' is the notification 2 displayed after a delay time of five minutes.

[0084] The foregoing examples are merely examples, and are not intended to limit this application. There are a plurality of other example forms, and examples are not listed herein.

[0085] In specific implementation, after the terminal device 100 performs step 202, in response to determining that the user does not perform a removal operation within the preset duration, the terminal device 100 instructs to normally display the notification. Specifically, when the terminal device 100 obtains the quantity of removal operations performed by the user within the preset duration and the quantity is zero, or the terminal device 100 determines that a preset flag of the quantity of removal operations is 0, the terminal device determines that the user does not perform a removal operation within the preset duration.

[0086] According to the notification processing method in this embodiment of this application, the terminal device receives a notification; determines whether the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which the notification is received; and determines a delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within the preset duration, and instructs to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value. According to the method, the terminal device may determine a delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which a notification is received, to automatically instruct to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value, without needing a manual setting of the user. In this way, flexibility of delayed displaying of a notification can be improved, and user experience can be improved.

[0087] Based on the foregoing embodiment, the following describes in detail a specific example of a scenario in which Alice watches a video by using a terminal device.

[0088] In the foregoing scenario, when Alice is watching a video by using the terminal device, Alice does not want to be disturbed by notifications constantly displayed by the terminal device, and therefore Alice constantly removes the notifications displayed by the terminal device. When Alice is watching a video, duration between a moment at which the terminal device receives a notification each time and a moment at which Alice enters a video display user interface during activating of a video application is considered as preset duration.

[0089] For example, when Alice is watching a video by using the terminal device, each time the terminal device displays a notification from Bob in WeChat, Alice removes the notification. A schematic diagram shown in FIG. 7A, FIG. 7B, and FIG. 7C is a schematic effect diagram of delaying, by the terminal device, displaying of a notification from Bob by using the method in the foregoing embodiment.

[0090] As shown in (a) in FIG. 7A, the terminal device displays a notification corresponding to Bob. Assuming that in this case, the terminal device receives a first notification, and determines that a quantity of removal operations performed by Alice on the notification from Bob between a moment at which the first notification is received and a moment at which the terminal device enters a video display user interface is one, the terminal device instructs to display the first notification after a delay time of three minutes, as shown in (b) in FIG. 7B. Assuming that in this case, the terminal device receives a second notification, and determines that a quantity of removal operations performed by Alice on the notification from Bob between the moment at which the first notification is received and the moment at which the terminal device enters the video display user interface is three, the terminal device instructs to display the first notification after a delay time of 10 minutes, as shown in (c) in FIG. 7C.

[0091] The delay duration values corresponding to the quantity of removal operations described in the foregoing each is determined based on the correspondence shown in Table 2 in the foregoing embodiment, and are merely examples herein.

[0092] It can be learned from the foregoing description of FIG. 7A, FIG. 7B, and FIG. 7C that, when Alice is watching a video, the terminal device reduces notifications that cause interference to Alice, to improve video watching experience of Alice.

[0093] Based on the foregoing embodiments, an embodiment of this application further provides a notification processing apparatus.

According to the method, the notification processing apparatus may determine a delay duration value in response to determining that the user performs a removal operation within preset duration before a moment at which a notification is received, to automatically instruct to display the notification after a delay time of the delay duration value, without needing a manual setting of the user. In this way, flexibility of delayed displaying of a notification can be improved, and user experience can be improved.
