In the Samsung S22 Plus, is it possible to find out that which notification category an app is using to send  specific notification?

An app is sending me scammy notifications, but I cannot disable the notifications of that whole app because some notifications are important. I can see it has 3 categories of notifcation channels named "default", "chat channel", and "internet chat channel". Is there a way to find out that a notification is coming from which category?

In my old OnePlus, if I hold the notification, I can see the category it is using to send it, however I am unable to find a solution for Samsung device.

@A107 I found two solutions to this problem myself:

  1. Enable notification history from settings, then, as soon as the target notification arrives, head to your notification history menu and click on that notification. You should be redirected to that specific notification's category settings page; OR
  2. As soon as the target notification arrives, go the that app's settings page, head to notifications, and go to notification categories, then start turning off  the notifications of all categories one by one, until you see that the target notification has disappeared. That is your notification category, click on it to view its settings, and then you re-enable the other categories which you had previously turned off;
