    Contact photos in notification bar

    Hi,

    How does one enable the contact photos to show in the notification tab when receiving SMS and email? Despite my contacts having display pictures when i receive a text message from them only the SMS icon shows up on the left side.

    Any thoughts?

    Never thought of it or seen anywhere. Isn't the notification bar is too small for a a picture?

    Yes, it is too small. I wonder if the OP is referring to photos showing up in the notification pulldown? Either way, I've never seen this before.

    Don't think that's possible and don't think any 3rd party sms app does it either

    My apologies, yes i meant the notification pull down. Have a look at the attached photo to see what I mean.

    I think it may depend on if you have the contacts in your Google+

    I get contact photos in my notification pull down, even from contacts not on Google +. Not sure but don't think it works for SMS.

    So for some of you it only works by email/google+? The screenshot seems to show a text message received from Andy Rubin, but that maybe just wrong Photoshopping.
