Activating LED flash for alerts, phone calls and notifications from any messaging app is one of the known features that you can find on an iPhone device that is, by default, the iPhone device comes with this feature but not integrated on android phones.
This feature serves as an alternative to sound alert, maybe, your device is in meeting mode, but you want to also get notified for any alerts or notification that comes into your device, then I advise you enable the LED flash for alert feature so you can get notified by your LED flash blinks.
You should know by now that vibrations or beep won’t pull our attention, but your attention can be easily pulled by the blinks of your LED flash without disturbing anybody around you. So, that’s why I recommend this option as best alternative to being notified without disturbance.
