Now talking about notification, if you choose to turn on message previews through the notification settings, you might still be able to see, reply to message notification even without unlocking the device with any of the biometric means. Also you will still be able to take incoming calls with the app in lock mode.

This feature is currently and only available to iOS devices, but there is strong indication that those on android platforms will also get the updates in due time.
