Our smartphones command our attention several times every day. Some people even check their phones in the middle of the night. Why do we allow this endless influx of incoming notifications, which are often unimportant, or worse, email spam, to interrupt us? If you can’t resist that blinking LED or that buzzing in your pocket, then you need to get to grips with the Do Not Disturb mode in Android.
Don’t let your smartphone addiction win. Set some ground rules with your phone and ensure that it doesn’t bother you in meetings, at the theater, or when you’re sleeping. Let’s look at how to use Android’s Do Not Disturb mode.
If you want to quickly enable Do Not Disturb mode, just swipe down from the top of your screen to open the notification shade, and select the Do Not Disturb icon. A quick tap will enable Do Not Disturb using your predefined settings.
If you want to make changes to your settings, long tap on the Do Not Disturb icon to go into the Settings menu. From the Settings menu, you will see three sections: Behavior, Exceptions, and Schedule. You can also arrive here by tapping on the Settings gear icon in the notification drawer, then tapping on Sound > Do Not Disturb.
