Windows 10 Adds Updated “Quiet Hours”

– a press release

“Windows 10 users will soon be able to disable or delay notifications during scheduled time slots or when using certain programs.”

For Immediate Release – January 16, 2018

Muncie, Ind. –  Windows 10 users will soon be able to disable or delay notifications during scheduled time slots or when using certain programs. The latest Windows 10 preview build introduces an update to “Quiet Hours” — a feature that has long been requested by Windows users. For those familiar, Quiet Hours is similar to the “Do Not Disturb” feature set already available on Mac and iOS.

If enabled, the new version of Quiet Hours will intelligently select certain applications and scenarios where distractions could affect user experience. These specific applications include full screen DirectX games, presentations, or when duplicating a screen to an external device. Quiet Hours will then disable itself once the application is terminated. Users can also whitelist specific applications and contacts to remain updated during use of the new feature.

Quiet Hours is currently available for early adopters via Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17074. And while beta features are often subject to revision, a full release is expected in the next Windows 10 update.
