How do I use the Do not Disturb feature

The Do not Disturb feature allows you to turn off notifications, calls and messages.

 

You can switch Do not Disturb on or off at any time, or can set it to work on a schedule e.g. set it to go on from 10pm to 7am.

 

You can also set exceptions to Do not Disturb such as allowing alarms or certain calls only.

Why does Do not Disturb sometimes turn on when it's not scheduled?Click to Expand

Some apps will have requested access to the Do not Disturb setting when you downloaded or activated them.

 

For example, Google's Driving app turns on Do not Disturb when it detects that you are driving.

 

If you don't want an app to make changes to Do not Disturb, you can manage the app rules for the feature by going to Settings > Sounds and vibration > Do not Disturb > App rules
