I would like to have my phone suspend all notifications between preset hours. Manualy turning sounds off and on is no option. I'm using a Nokia Lumia 1020 with Windows Phone 8.1.

So far I've only found one app called "quiet hours" but it doesn't work on WP 8.1

  • What do you mean it doesn't work in 8.1? Are you talking about Quiet Hours in Settings? – RareNCool Apr 7 '15 at 23:35

    Have you tried the built-in Quiet Hours feature? – Indrek Apr 8 '15 at 5:19

    @Shawn I think he's talking about this app. – Indrek Apr 8 '15 at 5:19

    Quiet Hours should work/be available when you have Cortana available (as 'Quiet Hours' is part-of Cortana). – Raxr Apr 8 '15 at 8:00
  • @Indrek Ah, I see. I'd definitely recommend the built-in Quiet Hours. – RareNCool Apr 8 '15 at 13:32

You should try the built-in Quiet hours feature. It can work only with Cortana as it is a part of Cortana.

When quiet hours is on, any phone calls you receive will go straight to voicemail, and all notifications will be silent (unless you've told Cortana you'd like to hear from the people in your inner circle).

To turn on quiet hours during night automatically follow these steps :

  1. Go to Cortana's notebook
  2. Open Quiet hours

Cortana's notebook

  1. Turn on Automatic rules and choose your timing

Automatic setting of quiet hours

Calls and messages will be shown in action centre where you can check it later.

There is much more functionality in Quiet hours like automatic replies, etc... You can find more information about Quiet hours in these websites.
