Adjusting audio alerts - NEXUS 6

How do I adjust the alerts on my device?

ANDROID 6.0 (Marshmallow)

Your device has three volume profiles to choose from. Simply tap the volume up key to bring up your volume slider. Then, select the drop down arrow to the right to access volume for the ringer, media, and alarms (top to bottom, respectively). Adjust the sliders of each to your desired volume level.

  Android Volume Profiles

To scilence your phone completely, try using Google's Do Not Disturb feature. To set up Do Not Disturb, open settings > sound and notification > Do Not Disturb. Go into Prioity Only and select what you want to be considered priority interuptions. Go into Automatic Rules to set up specific times you want the phone to enter a different mode. Choose from priority only interruptions, alarms, or complete scilence. Use this feature to quiet your phone at night or when you're working.

Do Not Disturb Profiles

To turn on Do Not Disturb at any time, simply pull down on the notificaiton bar twice, once to access notifications, and again to access quick settings. In quick settings, you should see Do Not Disturb. Touching this will give you the options of total silence, alarms only, or prioity only. You can also specify a time range that you would like for this mode to remain active or set it for Until you Turn this off.

** If you do not see Do Not Disturb in your quick settings, you may need to turn this on. To do so, touch and hold the gear icon in the upper right hand corner of your quick settings. It will spin and then say Congrats! System UI has been enabled. Then, open settings > System UI > touch the icons you want to appear in your quick settings. Deselect those you do not!
