I’m pretty sure a lot of you all – like me – must have been in situations where you would have loved to abhor any form of un/necessary disturbance from your android smartphone. For me, this mode could come like once in two years.
Well, it seems the android phone makers also saw things like this coming so they decided to create a ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode for people who might find themselves in this category. However, you can only enjoy this feature if you’re on the Android 5.0 lollipop and above.
So if you’re on the Android 5.0 lollipop and you find your self in a ‘Not to be disturbed’ mode, you can just follow this steps to activate the ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode. But before then, let us look at what exactly it does.
Do Not Disturb…
1. Automatically limit sounds at night or during events
2. Mute interruptions other than alarms, so you wake up on time
3. Get alerted to calls and messages only from favorite contacts

To make use of this great and very important feature, follow the steps below…
1. Go to settings
2. Click on Do not Disturb
3. Navigate through the 3 options available and choose the one that suit you with settings.
WHAT ARE THESE THREE OPTIONS?
You would have the luxury of choosing one out of three options available to use your ‘Do Not Disturb’ mode. See below:
1. Total silence – To completely mute your phone so that it doesn’t make a sound or vibrate, choose “Total silence.”
2. 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.
3. Priority only – Mutes everything except alarms, people, reminders, and events that you choose.
Choose your preferred and suitable option and voila! You have just been transfered into a ‘Not To Be Disturbed’ Mode.
Please Note that some of you might see “Always allow disturbances”, “Only allow exceptions” and Silence all disturbances depending on the version of Android you are using.
