Android Auto breaks Do Not Disturb custom exceptions 0 Recommended Answers 10 Replies 44 Upvotes

AA turns on DND mode. But after exiting the car, DND custom exceptions are broken:

- All options (such as favorite callers) are greyed out and cannot be toggled
- Previous custom settings are reset to "All"
- Media cannot be played in DND mode (when previously set to allow in DND)

Many others have reported this before, all citing AA as the cause of the bug: https://forum.xda-developers.com/galaxy-s8+/help/disturb-custom-exceptions-alarms-t3594544/page2

Please can a mod escalate this to the team leader. Thank you.

I just figured out that Android Auto was breaking my exceptions in Do Not Disturb.  I have to manually reset these exceptions every time I get out of the car. So annoying!

+1 On my new Galaxy S10e I disable the DND turned on by AA so that it will offer to read me text messages and I can then reply verbally.  After getting out of the car and AA is disconnected, I find that my DND exceptions are left the way AA sets them as All Calls and Messages - None.  So when my scheduled DND kicks in for the evening, my exceptions for my server room temp alert don't come through and all calls do!  Please add a setting to choose whether or not to have DND turn on at launch of AA.

I just found out this same issue is happening to both my wife and my Samsung S8 phones.  When we connect to AA, DND is activated (even though we don't want it activated), and when we exit the AA app when we exit the vehicle, the DND settings are set to ALL, so we do not get calls or messages, even from those on our favorites contact list (as it is set up in our settings).  When the scheduled DND kicks in at 11pm, all calls and messages come through without restriction (which is massively annoying).  

Basically, the AA app is useless to us when driving, because it mutes all calls, messages, and notifications (including map directions), but it resets all DND settings we have previously set up (such as 11pm to 8am to only receive calls/message notifications from favorite contacts list).  It is absolutely annoying and useless to have an app take your phone hostage while you are driving, preventing you from using it; and then change all your DND settings back to "default" EVERY TIME you use it!  This app should make our driving experience easier, not harder and more frustrating.

Fix this issue... YESTERDAY!  I want to set the AA app to NEVER turn on DND, and I want to be able to set ringer, notifications, and audio volumes separately so I don't have to utilize tasker to create a "profile" to do what the app should do, natively, and intuitively!

Lately I'm also not receiving texts or calls when using AA. I unplug it and DND is still active. This is usually happening, but not always, which is even more frustrating. Missed texts and calls, unless the call is a favorite, those sometimes go through.

If anything, I would love to see AA do the opposite - an option to override DND rules. When my DND is set to automatically come on at 10pm for the bedtime rule, and I'm driving at that hour for a vacation, it would be nice to not turn on DND so I can still receive calls & texts since I'm awake, driving, and not getting ready for bed.

My related issue is that when using Android Auto on my Pixel XL it changes my Do Not Disturb custom settings when I connect but does NOT restore them when I exit. Either have AA simply turn DND off while in use or allow users to deny AA that authority.

It took me a long time to realize that Android Auto was the reason my phone was ringing in meetings.

Because it changes to "Priority" to all callers and doesn't revert back to "selected callers," it effectively disables Do Not Disturb unless I check the DND settings after I get out of the car.

Yes, this is frustrating.  Seriously, of all settings to choose as a default, why would you choose "all callers" for something called "do not disturb"?  I just discovered that my Pixel 3 did this again.  It's both a bug and completely illogical.

Hello,

I'm using it on my Nokia 7+ (Android 10, AA 5.0) phone and AA sometimes reset custom exceptions. Sometimes do not disturb mode is not disabled after I close the app.

Its frustrating, beacuse after each use of the AA app I must check if dnd settings are intouch.
