Limit interruptions with the Google Assistant

To silence calls and notifications, ask the Google Assistant to turn on Do Not Disturb.

  • You can control Do Not Disturb on a phone connected to your Google Account.

  • You can control Do Not Disturb on speakers, Smart Displays, and Smart Clocks connected to your Google Account and on the same WiFi network.

To control Do Not Disturb on other devices with the Google Assistant, you must turn on Voice Match and use the Google Assistant in English (US).

Note: When you turn on Do Not Disturb for speakers, Smart Displays, and Smart Clocks, you won’t be able to broadcast voice messages to those devices or receive Duo calls on your Smart Display.

Turn Do Not Disturb on or off from a different device

You can ask one device with the Google Assistant to turn Do Not Disturb on or off on another device. For example, you could:

  • Ask the Google Assistant on your Smart Display to silence your phone
  • Ask the Google Assistant on your phone to turn your speaker to Do Not Disturb

Say "Ok Google," then give a command, like:

  • "Set the kitchen display to Do Not Disturb"
  • "Silence my phone"
  • "Turn off Do Not Disturb on the living room speaker"
  • "Take my phone off silent"

Turn Do Not Disturb on or off for all devices

You can ask one device with Google Assistant to turn Do Not Disturb on or off for all of your devices.

Say "Ok Google," then give a command, like:

  • "Set all devices to Do Not Disturb"
  • "Silence all devices"
  • "Turn off Do Not Disturb on all devices"
  • "Disable Do Not Disturb on all devices"
