Today we will be talking about how to activate “Do Not Disturb” right in your android device, this feature can only be found in Android devices running Lollipop, Marshmallow or Android 7.0 Nougat, while older android version devices will not be able to enjoy this feature that’s why I always encourage us on upgrading our devices. This feature allows you to limit the way sounds and notifications work on your smartphone. Mute all calls and alerts, except for your selected exceptions, meaning it mutes your device so that it doesn’t make sounds, or vibrate when you don’t want it to. You can also block visual disturbances.
The Do Not Disturb feature can be used to Automatically limit sounds at night or during events, Mute interruptions other than alarms, so you wake up on time, Get alerted to calls and messages only from favorite contacts.
The Do Not Disturb is located in the phone settings though in andriod lollipop you will find in the Sound and Vibration settings so that you can easily navigate to it. The Do Not Disturb can be used especially when you are in a meeting, in some kind of environment or even at night, you can customize how you want your phone to behave when an alert or notification arrives which makes it more better and preferable than the normal phone silent because all other notifications automatically become silent but with “Do Not Disturb”, you customize it to as you want.
To activate Do Not Disturb in your Android device
- Go to Settings
- Click on Do Not Disturb
- Navigate through the 3 options available and select the one that suits yours with settings.
Three Ways to Limit Vibrations and Sound
- Total silence: To completely mute your phone so that it doesn’t make a sound or vibrate, choose “Total silence.”
- Alarms only: To mute your phone so that you’ll still hear your alarm, choose “Alarms only.” This option won’t mute sounds from music, videos, games, or other media.
- Priority only: Mutes everything except alarms, people, reminders, and events that you choose.
With “Do Not Disturb” feature you can completely mute your phone or let it notify you when important info comes like calls and alarms.
NOTE: Do Not Disturb is available for Android 5.0 and above, also note that some brands situate it in the sound settings area, so check “Sound and Notifications” if it does not appear in the settings menu.
