Be distraction free with Do not disturb on the Galaxy Note8

Last Update Date : Apr 09. 2018

Do not disturb


Studying the night before an exam? A distraction is the last thing you need. Don’t let anything pull your focus with Do Not Disturb. It mutes all alerts on your phone when you really need some peace and quiet. You can also set Do Not Disturb to turn on or off automatically at scheduled times, like at a family dinner or during an important work meeting. Of course, you can always set certain alerts as exceptions so you don’t miss an important call.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
