How to play games silently while also making sure you receive calls and message alerts

Samsung’s Game Launcher helps you enjoy interrupted gaming by blocking unnecessary notifications, toast pop-ups, and dialogs. While most of us generally like to keep the in-game sounds on, there are occasions when you might want a bit of quiet. If you come across those moments more often than not, there’s a cool feature you could use to mute all in-game sounds without silencing other system alerts.

By toggling it, you will be able to play games silently and won’t miss out on important calls and messages. This switch is especially useful when you’re lending your device to someone else to play.
