    I use it manually every night when I got to bed and every morning when I wake up.

    I used to try using it at work but then it would be annoying to my coworkers when my daughter or spouse or a parent texted so at work I just use the volume. :-/

    Who else is using Quiet Hours?

    I use it when in college lessons & sleeping!
    Why do you ask? If you don't want or need to use it, don't. Not so long ago, it was wonderful for me. No more T-Mobile reminders at 3AM. Now, not so much. A wonderful tweak.

    I use it everyday, I turn it on before sleep + while studying.
    It's really awesome and better than the silent mode!, you still get phone calls from who you love or care about.

    Same here.. During college hours... Really very useful set to schedule 7.45 am-2.45 pm... But i noticed a glitch.. at times when I manually turn it off it goes back on with a few hours.. within the given timing though.. But still kind irritating..

    Quiet Hours is a main feature of WIndows 8.1, it's the reason I use my Phone with USA region. Though I don't understand the need to couple it to Cortana. The coupling with busy items in the agenda, and the break through for the inner circle are perfect!

    I use it to keep the phone silent while I sleep. The people I Skype with are only active during the early morning here...

    Cortana can be thought of as a centralized hub of sorts, I suppose. Using Quiet Hours under Cortana helps Cortana gather info as well.

    I use it myself but I kinda forgot that I was. I enabled it and it's been working great. Whenever I'm in a meeting or at night it turns on but I actually forgot that was something I set. At least until I saw this post. Thanks for the reminder!

    I don't think you can. It is tied in with Cortana for some inexplainable reason, and if Cortana is unavailable in your country then you don't have the Quite Hours feature.
    Also GPS has to be on for Cortana to function, then corttana for quiet hours to function. Not sure why quiet hours can't be a stand alone functioning app.

    I instituted a policy where if a person's phone starts announcing a musical ring tone during a meeting, said offender will have to dance to it.
    Meetings are valuable time, they should not be interrupted with the latest Nickleback or Miley Cyrus tune.

    I did notice just after I instituted it, staff would try and call each other on the sly to make a ring tone go off and make the owner dance.

    After the initial getting use to it period, it has dramatically cut down on the interruptions in my meetings.

    Thats an awesome policy. Our deal was that the owner of the offending phone owes us donuts for the next meeting.

    I dont understand how this isnt a built in feature on any phone, especially smartphones. My past three phones have had it in one form or another.

    Glad its there, just wish it wasn't tied to Cortana. I've switched my region to the US, just for this feature.

    I have several meetings/appointments a week, sometimes a day. Quiet Hours is a godsend for detecting these in my calendar and keeping my phone quiet. I use to us an app to do this on Android. It is a must have feature. I hope that it'll get updated to set volumes instead of just keeping everything Silent. I sure would love if it could set it to certain volumes at certain times automatically. I have forgotten to turn the volume down at night and getting emails/texts can be startling to say the least.
