    You can use "Do not Disturb" mode and "Focus" mode to control notifications from specific apps. This can be useful when you want to focus or avoid getting distracted.

    Both modes when activated block current and incoming notifications from certain apps. Notifications are also cleared from specific apps.

    "Focus" mode also blocks certain apps from opening by accident. When "Focus" mode is on, you won't receive any notifications from apps that you choose in your settings. Go to your settings to select apps that you want to block when "Focus" mode is active.
