How do I view Announcements in the Canvas Student app on my Android device?

Canvas lets you view Announcements in your Canvas courses. You can also view Announcements directly in the Notifications tab. If your instructor allows, you can reply to announcements.

Instructors can create Announcements.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Note: The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If Announcements is not available in your Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
