Tired of hearing Alexa tell you about various things?

You can activate the Alexa Do Not Disturb mode to keep her from giving you alerts during designated timeframes.

The mode lets you block:

  • All incoming notifications
  • All announcements
  • All incoming calls

The mode doesn’t block prescheduled alarms and timers; you’ll need to turn those off separately if you don’t want them to interrupt you.

Let’s get started!

Turn on Alexa's Do Not Disturb Mode for a Single Instance

You can set up a single instance of Do Not Disturb using the Alexa app or by directly speaking to Alexa.

To turn on the mode using your voice, give the command, “Alexa, turn on Do Not Disturb.”

She will respond with “I won’t disturb you” so you will know she heard you.

To turn on the mode using the app instead, open the Alexa app and follow these steps:

1. Tap the hamburger menu in the top left of the screen.

2. Tap Settings.

3. Tap Device Settings.

4. Find and tap the device you want to set the mode on.

5. Scroll down and tap Do Not Disturb.

6. On the Do Not Disturb screen, move the slider button to On.

7. Do Not Disturb is now set on your selected device. Follow these same steps and simply slide the Scheduled slider button to the Off position to turn off the mode.

How to Schedule Alexa's Do Not Disturb Mode

If you need Alexa to stay quiet at the same time on a regular basis, you can schedule Do Not Disturb mode using the Alexa app.

To set up a scheduled Do Not Disturb time, open the Alexa app and follow these steps:

1. Tap the hamburger menu in the top left of the screen.

2. Tap Settings.

3. Tap Device Settings.

4. Find and tap the device you want to set the mode on.

5. Scroll down and tap Do Not Disturb.

6. On the Do Not Disturb screen, next to Scheduled, move the slider button to the On position.

7. Next to Start, tap the time. Use the clock provided to select the hour and minute you want Do Not Disturb to begin. Don’t forget to select AM or PM. Tap OK.

8. Next to End, tap the time. Use the clock provided to select the hour and minute you want Do Not Disturb to end. Don’t forget to select AM or PM. Tap OK.

How to Disable or Turn off Do Not Disturb Mode

Just like turning the mode on, you can turn the mode off either verbally or through the app.

  • Voice command: To verbally turn off the mode after a single instance, just give the command, “Alexa, turn off Do Not Disturb.” She will respond with “Do Not Disturb is now off.”
  • Alexa app: To turn the mode off using the app, go back to Device Settings. Tap the device in use, tap Do Not Disturb, then move the slider button to the Off position.

The Bottom Line

I hope I helped you understant how to use Do Not Disturd mode on Alexa via the Alexa App.
