Posted on January 11, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Windows 10 with 12 Comments

Windows 10’s Quiet Hours feature, first introduced on Windows Phone, is getting upgraded with the upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 4 release. Microsoft is currently testing a new version of the Quiet Hours feature in an internal build of Windows 10, first leaked by Synergy Insider+ on Twitter. The new Quiet Hours feature has lots of new customization features that make it way more powerful than the current Quiet Hours feature in Windows 10.

Following the initial leak, Rafael Rivera leaked some more screenshots of the new Quiet Hours in Windows 10, showing a couple of other customization features. Microsoft is adding the ability to enable Quiet Hours when you start a game, which will be really useful for when you don’t want to get distracted by notifications or…work.

The new Quiet Hours also features different modes and lets you set it to turn on the feature every day, every week, or every weekend during certain times. Basically, it’s just a super-charged version of what Quiet Hours is now. So yes, it’s getting a lot more useful.

The new Quiet Hours should be available to Windows Insider in the upcoming builds, which shouldn’t take too long to arrive. As for everyone else, Microsoft is expected to release the Redstone 4 sometime in March or April of this year.
