    Has anyone seen any videos or screenshots of quiet hours and how it works?

    This is a very handy feature and want to know how it works for example does it just do it by time or can you define it for example to go into silent when connected to a certain wifi network?

    Yes, I am very interested in this as well. On my Note 2 (using Llama) I can set rules such as "if connected to WiFi 'xxyyzz' between 08:30 & 17:30 reduce ringer and notification volume to 0, else set ringer and notification volume to 8". In fact Llama on Android is even smarter than that - it only switches on WiFi and starts searching once in the relevant cell area. Anything close to this in Windows would be excellent.

    Also interested in seeing how this has been implemented by Microsoft.

    Here are some screenshots. It seems similar to iOS. You can manually enable it or schedule it. You can also set rules for bypassing the quiet time rules.

    I was really looking forward to this feature as well. But since I have the Volume app, it satisfies my needs. Doesn't change on WiFi connect, but is time based or appointment based. Also, the developer has written that soon they will have location based triggers which is pretty cool. What I hate is, Microsoft has nicely implemented this for android but not their own platform, I am talking the ON X app. It is really cool.

    Nice, definitely one of the things I miss from my iPhone days. Does anyone know if you can have a different 'quiet hours' schedule on weekends? From the screenshots it looks like you get to pick a single on/off time, active on days of choice.

    Also: it looks like you can set 'one' inner circle. Maybe at work I don't want my family 'breaking through' my meetings, but on the weekend I want to allow them to reach me late at night during quiet hours. That would require two sets of 'break through people'.

    But hey, just getting this is already a huge improvement!

    Hi, in SS it is showing under/linked up With Cortona. Will it work With Cortona Only? R without Cortona? :)

    Doesn't make sense for it to work with Cortona only. Would be a massive let down.

    Hope this isn't true but I'm sure it is sadly... probably one of my most needed features!

    Looks like it is only US at present and tied in with Cortana.
    I really wanted this feature, but can't find it anywhere after upgrading.

    I was looking forward to this too, disappointed that it's tied to Cortana :( I tried the "Volume" app mentioned but it was a battery hog for some reason so had to remove it.

    K, I'm a newb for this feature. I've configured it, but what will people hear when they call or text and this thing takes over? Just my normal VM as if my phone were off, or some sexy Cortana voice saying something else?
