Alexa Tip: Using Alexa’s Do Not Disturb Feature for Calling and Messaging

With the rollout of Amazon’s new Calling and Messaging feature for Alexa devices, users can also tell Alexa to turn off call and message notification or set a schedule range. The feature turns off notifications for calls and messages, but timers and alarms will still work.

The Do Not Disturb feature is managed per device. So, if you have multiple devices in your house, you’ll need to enact the function for the specific device.

To turn it on and off for the specific device…

“Alexa, don’t disturb me.”
“Alexa, turn off Do Not Disturb.”

In the app…

Go to Settings – the specific device – locate the Do Not Disturb section.


BTW: You can only set a schedule in the app – you can’t currently use your voice to give Alexa a Do Not Disturb schedule.
