The "Flip to Shhh" function of the Pixel may not be groundbreaking, but it is handy. Third-party apps copy it for other phones because it's so handy. But it is not enabled by default and it is fairly hidden in the settings. So to take full advantage of your Pixel feature set, you need to learn how to use Flip to Shhh.
If you don't know, Flip to Shhh automatically puts your Pixel in Do Not Disturb mode when you place the phone face down on a flat surface. This is of course intended for use with a cover that prevents the front glass from touching anything, which may be the reason why Google has decided to leave the setting off by default. But as long as you don't worry about scratching, there is no reason not to turn it on.
& # 39; Flip to Shhh & # 39; enable
First open the Settings app. Scroll down and tap & # 39; System & # 39 ;. On the "System" screen, tap "Gestures."
At the bottom of this menu you will see the "Turn to Shhh" option. Tap it and you'll be taken to a new screen with an explanation of how Flip to Shhh works. A rocker switch is coming. Tap it to enable Flip to Shhh.
From now on, when you put down your phone, you will feel a small buzz indicating that the Do not disturb mode is switched on. No calls or text messages or notifications will continue to sound with the exception of specific rules that you have created in Settings -> Sound -> Do not disturb.
