How To Use 'Do Not Disturb' Feature on Android Devices

   
    Do Not Disturb is a feature in Android lollipop and Marshmallow devices that allows you limit the way sounds and notifications work on your phone. As the name indicates, it's like a silent mode but can automatically grant permission to certain applications, messages and people while muting other non relevant notifications.

Funny but interesting aspect is many Android phone users are unaware of this important feature. As a matter of fact, it's usually located in the phone settings although some brands situate it in the sound settings area.

Do not disturb comes in handy 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. It is better than the regular "silent mode" we are used to. This is because when your phone is in silent mode, all other notifications automatically becomes silent but with "do not disturb", you select apps to silence.

WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH "DO NOT DISTURB"
✔️ 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

3 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.

HOW TO USE DO NOT DISTURB IN ANDROID LOLLIPOP
✔️ Go to settings
✔️ Click on Do not Disturb
✔️ Navigate through the 3 options available and choose the one that suit you with settings.

HOW TO USE DO NOT DISTURB ON ANDROID 6.0 MARSHMALLOW

✔️ Just under basic settings, locate "do not disturb"
✔️ Tap on it and you will be presented with options of what you can do with it.
✔️ Choose according to your priorities.

The same step applies to Android 7.0 Nougat devices as this feature is available for Android 5.1 Lollipop, Marshmallow and Nougat as I earlier stated.

    1. Yrs it's still working. You just have to make sure you used a valid BB10 IMEI number when tweaking.
      Also remember to tweak a new IMEI in subsequent subscriptions
