You can turn this mode on quickly or set it to open automatically on a schedule. I set DnD to open at 10:30pm and close at 6:30pm every night. So nothing bothers me while I sleep, and that includes visual notifications.

  1. Go to the app tray or tap the gear-shaped settings button in the notification bar
  2. choose
  3. Scroll down
  4. Open , or , programs, exceptions and more

To quickly mute everything, turn the switch to ON. Or tap the option to go in and make some changes. Note that DnD will completely mute all sounds and notifications, including alarms.

However, if you plan to use it more than once, customize what goes silent to get the most out of your phone. You can get rid of everything except alarms or certain exceptions. We love the repeat callers exception. If a family member calls 3-4 times in a row, DnD lets the call become useless assuming someone calls multiple times is important enough.

There are even exceptions like when certain friends or family members can call or text you while everything else is muted until the morning. Select a contact from your phone and add it to the exception list. You can allow certain apps to ignore DnD mode while others remain silent. Note that certain events, tasks, or reminders may follow, if you let them.

You can also instantly turn DnD on or off in the quick settings dropdown, although a custom program is the best route. That way, for urgent meetings or important occasions, you can quickly toggle it on or off without messing up your settings menu.
