You won't see how to turn the Galaxy S22's punch-hole into a notification light in your regular settings app. Adding this handy feature requires downloading an app from the Google Play store, but after you've done that and gone through the set-up, you'll have a handy feature that Samsung never thought to add.
A few years back, it was common to find notification LEDs on Android phones that would blink, pulse and flash in various colors to make sure you knew you had something to check. With the move to full-screen designs, there's no longer room to spare in the bezels for these handy lights. That's why you need to download an app like aodNotify, which turns the perimeter of your punch-hole camera into a virtual LED indicator.
