How to view cleared notifications in Android

If you accidentally dismissed a notification on your Android phone and wondered what it was, here is a way to view cleared reports.
Notifications on Android are an excellent way to get informed about various activities going on with your friends, business, and even with the world. 
 
Some notifications may be necessary, some may just be interrupting, and most people tend to dismiss notifications like sale announcements or reminders just for the time being.
 
After some time, when we are free, we may again want to view those notifications that we have dismissed earlier.
 
It may be some playlist suggestion from our favorite music app, a traffic alert from our maps app, or even a backup reminder for our photos.
 
But unfortunately, you cannot see them again as you had cleared them and ignored them when they were there for you.

But fortunately, these notifications are not your girlfriend, and you can get them back. 
 
Not only the recent ones you have dismissed, but you can also see the entire log of your notifications for the past few hours!
 
The best things about this trick are that it is extremely simple, easily accessible, and best of all, it does not require you to download or install any app from the play store. 
 
So it does not matter whether you are in a stock or a skinned version of Android; you can still make use of this excellent feature!
