Windows 10 won’t disturb you with notifications when you’re watching movie

Focus Assist in Windows 10

Microsoft is testing a new feature for Windows 10 that would
disable the notifications when you’re watching a movie or
reading something. Windows 10’s Spring 2019 update will improve
the Focus Assist feature and add a new option to silence
notifications when the system is in full-screen mode.

What is Focus Assist?

In Windows 10 April 2018 Update or newer, you will find a
setting page called ‘Focus Assist’. The purpose of Focus Assist
is to automatically silence notifications when users are
working on an important project and don’t want to be
distracted.

Focus Assist to become more useful

In the upcoming Windows 10 19H1, Focus Assist will get smarter.
Microsoft says that Windows 10 19H1 update will make Focus
Assist more useful and add a new option that would disable
notifications when you’re watching videos, studying or doing
anything in full-screen mode.

The feature is not just limited videos as the notifications
will be silenced whenever you run something in full
screen, regardless of the type of activity. For example, if you
enable the full screen mode option in Focus Assist
settings, the notifications won’t appear if you watch a video,
read a document, work on a presentation or do anything.

Focus Assist settings

It’s a useful feature especially when you’re watching a movie
and you’d to reduce all the other distractions to
make sure you can watch without being interrupted.

You can access the feature from Settings > System >
Focus Assist but the full screen mode option won’t show up if
the PC is on Windows 10 October 2018 Update or older.

“Make sure you take a moment to customize your priority list to
ensure any notifications you want to break through the rule
will appear! If you’d like to turn off the warning notification
that’s shown in Action Center after entering focus assist, you
can do so by clicking the rule in Focus Assist Settings which
prompted the notification,” Microsoft explains.
