How to Remove Apps From the “Conversations” Section on Android: Android 11 introduced a feature that puts notifications from messaging apps in a “Conversations” section of the notification shade. These notifications are always at the top of the list, but it’s easy to remove an app from this section.

To do so, when a notification appears in the “Conversations” section, press and hold it.
