The granted patent (Publication Number: US11904237B2) discloses a method for presenting interactive notifications about an online game on a mobile user device in a locked mode. The interactive notification displayed on the lockscreen provides contextual information about a specific gameplay action that the user can perform in the game instance. The notification includes an action trigger that, when selected by the user, automatically initiates the gameplay action without the need to launch the game application on the device. This innovative method enhances user engagement with the game by allowing seamless interaction and gameplay even when the device is locked.

Furthermore, the patent describes a system and a computer-readable storage medium that enable the locked mode-presentation of interactive notifications for online games on mobile devices. The system includes computer processor devices and memory storing instructions to facilitate the display of notifications on the lockscreen, allowing users to perform various gameplay actions directly from the notification interface. The interactive notifications may contain multiple action triggers for different gameplay actions, enhancing user experience and convenience. By automating the performance of gameplay actions based on user input via the lockscreen notification, the disclosed method simplifies and streamlines the gaming experience on mobile devices, ultimately improving user satisfaction and engagement with online games.
