The Android operating system has come a long way since its humble beginnings in 2008. Today, Android is loaded with great features, including Google Assistant, Android Auto, and the Driving Mode. But the Driving Mode has largely fallen out of favor since Android Auto was introduced. In order to turn off the mode, you must go to Phone Settings and then tap the Silence notifications while driving toggle switch.
Do not disturb mode
There are several ways to disable driving mode on your Android phone. You can turn off the feature from your phone’s lock screen by sliding down. Then, tap on the Do Not Disturb toggle. Alternatively, you can ask Google Assistant to disable the feature if it is currently active. You can also turn off Do Not Disturb from the Settings menu.
If you use an iPhone, you can disable car mode by opening Control Center and tapping the Plus sign next to Do Not Disturb while driving. You can also use the car icon in Control Center to disable car mode. After doing so, your phone will no longer display notifications. Instead, it will only display apps that you want to open while driving.
The same can be done in Google Maps. From there, select your phone’s settings and tap the Navigation tab. From there, look for Manage Driving Mode. Turn off this setting to stop Google Assistant from guiding you while driving.
Google Assistant driving mode
If you’re tired of the constant chatter from your smartphone while driving, you can turn off Google Assistant driving mode on Android. This feature can be found in the Google Maps settings menu. Simply toggle the option to turn it off and it won’t start the next time you use the app.
You can also enable or disable Google Assistant driving mode on Android by going into the settings menu. To do so, open the Google app, then navigate to Settings. Tap the Assistant tab and select Assistant. You’ll find two main sections: Transportation and Driving Mode. The latter setting allows you to specify what kinds of scenarios you’d like Google Assistant to start your UI, such as when you connect your phone to your car’s Bluetooth or start navigation. The Settings menu also allows you to customize your notification preferences.
Once enabled, Google Assistant will be able to make phone calls, read text messages, and navigate. Unlike Android Auto, this mode is not available in all regions and countries. Google did not comment on whether the feature will be rolled out globally in the future.
Google Maps version of driving mode
If you use Android, you can disable Google Maps’ version of driving mode. To do this, go to Settings > System > Driving Mode. This feature allows you to set certain parameters for driving, such as how long you can use your phone or turn off alerts while driving. To enable driving mode, open the Google Maps app. Tap on the menu icon. From there, go to the settings menu and select “Driving Mode.” To turn off driving mode, turn the toggle to the “off” position.
Disabling Google Maps’ driving mode isn’t as difficult as you may think. In fact, it’s so easy that you can even ask Google Assistant to ask you if you really need to turn on driving mode before launching Google Maps. You can also configure the app to automatically launch when you start navigation in Google Maps.
Another way to disable Google Maps’ driving mode is to enable the “dark mode” feature on the Android device. You can find this setting in the settings for your Android device. Once enabled, you can turn on or off the driving mode whenever you want.
Turning off Do Not Disturb mode while driving
If you want to turn off Do Not Disturb mode while driving, you need to configure your Android device’s settings. To do so, go to the settings of your device, tap on Google, and then tap on Personal Safety. Then, toggle the “Silence notifications while driving” option off.
You can also choose which contacts to disable while in Do Not Disturb mode. For instance, you can choose to turn off notifications for certain conversation threads, or for individual contacts. In the preferences menu, you can also select to exclude calendar events, reminders, and alarms. You can still receive calls and texts, though.
To turn off Do Not Disturb mode while driving, go to the Quick Settings menu on your Android phone. Click the Do Not Disturb icon and choose the day and time you’d like to turn off notifications. You can even set the notification settings for certain days of the week. Just be careful, however: Do Not Disturb is only a safety feature, and should be used cautiously.
