So there you are, trying to do your best to hang out with your friends over a cup of coffee, but you cannot help but notice a pushing notification on your smartphone’s screen. You hastily unlock your device to see what the email is about – and just like that, you can’t keep off your handset even if you have your friend sitting beside you.

The good news that you can now silence work emails on your Android device and concentrate more on the people who matter, rather than becoming distracted by emails from your boss or workplace. Thanks to the Developer Sergio Garcia who made an application for those affected by work email notifications. His new application lets users set their work email notifications quiet for hours while still getting the personal email notifications.

Here is how to do it:

Install Quiet

If you want to end the stress acquired from work emails notifications during free time, install Quiet application for Gmail.

Grant Permissions

In case you are running Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher, you will have to grant app permissions so that you can access the entire contact list for easy management of your email account.

To do that, hit ‘Go Ahead’ when you are prompted, and then tap ‘Allow’ on the popup.

Designate Quiet times

After granting permission, the app starts on your Gmail account, so will need to open a side navigation menu and then choose your work email account. After selecting the account, begin by hitting the ‘Add Rule’ button found at the center of your smartphone’s screen. You will now see a menu that allows you to add your own work schedule.

You have to make sure that all the days you work are clearly highlighted in blue. Then set ‘From’ field (that is the time you usually clock in) and ‘To’ field (the time you clock out). This ensures your device only notifies you off work emails while you are actually at work.

Furthermore, if you’ve a tight schedule with diverse in and out times, you can hit the ‘Add Rule’ button again and add a second set of conditions.

Make use of your personal time

After setting up everything, you are now good to go. When you are getting off work, you will see a notification say that the work email notification is to be silenced soon. Only the personal email notifications will alert you till the next work day.
