Android 6.0.1 'Do not disturb until next alarm' feature disappears

Android 6 logoThose rocking a phone powered by Android 6.0.1 might have discovered today that a particular feature has been removed again. The "Do not disturb until next alarm" setting that was returned to Google's open source OS with the 6.0.1 update, is gone. The feature, which makes sure that Android users muting their volume are still alerted at a pre-selected time, has once again been removed from the platform.

This is the second time that the powers-that-be at Google have eliminated this option. The first time was with the Android 6.0 update. The reason that it is needed at all has to do with the way that Android mutes a phone. Instead of simply turning the volume slider down to "0," Android offers three different settings. You can choose to receive all notifications, only notifications with a priority tag (including alarms), and no notifications at all. The "Do not disturb until next alarm" feature allows pre-set alarms to go off even with notifications silenced. Once the alarm rings, the notifications are automatically turned back on.

Those posting about this on social media seem to believe that Google had a Mission Impossible Snapchat-esque self destruct feature, which was designed to removed the setting this weekend. There does remain an option that will allow a set alarm to go off for a period of time, even if all notifications have been stopped. But this won't turn the notifications setting back on.
