Undoubtedly, smartphones these days have partly replaced portable gaming consoles. Most of us prefer playing games on Android just because it’s handy and easily accessible. This is why a lot of games that have been exclusive for gaming consoles are now available on smartphones.
However, notifications are one of the biggest problems that ruin the gaming experience on the phone. Imagine a notification obstructing your vision while you’re busy combating with the enemy in a game like PUBG or Call Of Duty Mobile.
Anyways, most of the Android smartphones come with a built-in gaming mode that lets you block notifications and calls while playing games. If not, catch up with the methods given below to disable notifications while gaming on Android.
Disable notifications while gaming using DND
Well, if you are not willing to use any third party apps or tweaks, using the built-in Do Not Disturb mode is the most feasible way to disable notifications while gaming. On the contrary, you can also use automation apps like Tasker to automate the settings but let’s just not complicate things.
1] Open Settings on your Android.
2] Navigate to Sounds and search for the “Do Not Disturb” option.
3] Choose between the given do not disturb modes and activate it. For instance, to be notified of calls and messages only from specific contacts, choose “Allow priority interruptions only.” Or else, for no interruptions, you can select the “Don’t interrupt” option.
Calls and notifications will be silenced, and your device will only vibrate or pop-up notifications for priority notifications (if turned on). Nonetheless, you can also trigger DND directly from the quick toggle settings in the notification panel while gaming.
