Yatse Notification Plugin¶
The plugin can use 2 modes to access the notifications on Android.
If your device is Android 4.2 and less then you do not have the choice and need to use Accessibility service.
On Android 4.3 and later Notification listener is the prefered way.
Important : There's a bug in some ROMS (mostly Samsung) that will make your phone talk when this plugin is installed.
There's nothing we can do about it please see :

This plugin can forward selected android notifications to your Kodi.
To achieve this we must use the accessibility feature of Android that can access lots of data.
You'll need to activate this plugin in Android settings and accept the security warning.
Go to Android settings.
Click Yatse Notification Plugin.
Toggle the setting to On then validate the dialog.
Since this plugin does not have any permission, there's no real security risks.
Choose the apps that will be forwarded then click save.
On Android 4.3 and 4.4 you need to go to Settings then Security then Notification access and check Yatse notification Plugin.
On Android 5.0 you need to go to Settings then Sounds & notification then Notification access and check Yatse notification Plugin.
