Priority Mode is a feature found on some Android devices, including those made by Samsung. It allows users to customize which notifications and alerts are given priority and can be heard or felt on the device.
Here’s how Priority Mode usually works:
Notifications: You can choose which notifications are allowed through in Priority Mode. This includes calls and messages from specific contacts or notifications from certain apps.
Sounds and Vibrations: You can control whether or not the device will make sounds or vibrate for notifications while in Priority Mode. This can help you minimize disturbances during important meetings or when you need to concentrate on a task.
Schedule: Some implementations of Priority Mode allow you to set a schedule for when it’s active. For example, you can set Priority Mode to be active during work hours or sleeping.
Activation: Priority Mode can typically be activated through the device’s settings or by using the volume buttons to adjust the notification settings.
Do Not Disturb: Priority Mode might be linked to or synonymous with the “Do Not Disturb” function on some devices. This feature silences all or selected calls and notifications to prevent interruptions.
Exceptions: You can usually set exceptions for Priority Mode, such as allowing calls or messages from certain contacts or groups to come through even when Priority Mode is active.
