Snapchat has updated its latest ‘Do not disturb’ feature option that users can turn on for their friends on the app. It’s similar to the feature available on iPhones to mute notifications from everyone, although the function on Snapchat is a little bit more complicated to turn on.
Snapchat has updated its latest ‘Do not disturb’ feature
The feature is one of the changes in the redesign of the app that users appear to actually like.
# Its allowing users to limit the number of notifications they get from the app in general by only allowing notifications from some users.
# It also allows users to narrow down their notifications so that they only get quality notifications from friends they want to see them from.
Snapchat ‘Do not disturb’ feature
To use the muting feature, you need to hold down on the name of a person or group.
You’ll get an option marked ‘Do not disturb’
Press this and you will no longer receive notifications, which means you won’t be interrupted every time they share a picture of their latest make over/ party/ dinner.
How Snapchat users can mute stories or notifications from their friends on the app?
Mute Story >> Do Not Disturb >> Clear Conversation
# Users should first open the app and go to the friends list.
# After that, users should choose and hold the name of either the friend or the group they wish to mute notifications from.
# Then select “settings.” Users can also tap on the name and then select the settings from there.
# This should bring up a menu and the option to toggle “Do not disturb” on or off.
# The person or group will not be alerted when they are put on ‘Do not disturb’.
# Users can easily check who they’ve put on ‘Do not disturb’ by scrolling their friends list.
# Friends on the app who are on ‘Do not disturb’ are easy for users to identify thanks to a small icon that looks like “zzz” next to the friend’s name that sigals that the user is asleep or snoozed.
# This menu will also pull up an option for users to mute the stories of the people the follow if they wish. The option is listed just above the option to turn of the notifications for someone.
# In your friends list, choose a friend and hold down on their name and it should bring you up a list of options.
Edit name >> Mute Story >> Do not disturb >> Clear Conversation >> Remove Friend >> Block >> Report >> Cancel
The feature Do not disturb is only available in the latest update, so you’ll have to make sure you’re up to date otherwise the option will be unavailable to you.
It means users who wish to mute a friend in the app first need to update their app to ensure that they’re running the latest version with the feature included.
