Facebook has recently introduced a new group of settings to help the user manage the time they spend on its mobile app. Now, it has been augmented further with Quiet Mode, a set of toggles that allows notifications to be silenced for all or a specific part of the day. They may be followed by even more granular controls in the future.

Current circumstances may have resulted in an entirely new pool of smartphone users who now need to adapt to the need to focus on working while in much greater proximity to their personal devices and the potential worth of distracting recreational notifications. The same people may have felt they would like help cutting down on the same in any case. This is why Your Time on Facebook has been implemented on the social-media platform in question.

Facebook has recently developed this area of its settings further with a new Quiet Mode, which give the option to mute notifications from this site's mobile app. This can be done manually or via Scheduled Quiet Mode, so that the user can avoid using their phone for relevant reasons during (for example) peak work-from-home hours.

This new addition to the app has just been picked up on by VentureBeat, but was also detected previously by the app teardown expert Jane Manchun Wong. She has also observed that Facebook is also working on advanced Your Time controls, including an option to select which types of notifications are to be muted.

The Quiet Mode feature will be first seen on the iOS version of the Facebook app in April 2020, followed by its Android variant in May 2020.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
