In Nougat, there used to be a per-app option to control which apps could override Do Not Disturb. In Oreo, I only see the Low/Medium/High/Urgent options, none of which say that they override Do Not Disturb. Is there still a way to do this for Oreo apps? If so, how?

On stock Oreo 8.0 (MiA1)

Settings → Apps and notifications →App Info → Choose app (not all apps have this permission) →App Notification → Enable override

It looks like that's only there for legacy apps, not ones that target Oreo and use its new notification channels.

Is that so? Can you quote an example app?

Chrome is one such app. I see "Allow notification dot" and then a bunch of categories, none of which contain that option.

+1. I see your point. Maybe you should ask a separate question( using this as reference) to ask how it can be done for such apps. I have no answer

If your device is rooted, gravity box xposed module offers notification control that can do this
