For this example, we will use a Samsung smartphone. However, be aware that this is not a specific feature of the One UI 6.0. So all phones with Android 14 should have it.

The “Mute Notifications While Driving” feature does exactly what it says and turns on Do Not Disturb on your phone whenever you’re driving.

This tool uses motion sensors and connections bluetooth from your phone to find out if you are in a moving vehicle. It then turns on DND to limit interruptions like calls and text message notifications.

To enable this feature, open the Settings app on your Galaxy device, go to “Safety & emergency” and select “Mute notifications while driving”. Then tap the ON/OFF button to activate the functionality.
