Windows Phone devices are equipped with the option “Quiet Hours”, which allows you to configure the time at which the user will not receive any notifications.

A new option will be called “invisible mode”. It will automatically change the brightness of the screen and mute the sound when the owner of the device sleeps or is at a meeting or in the theater.
“Invisible mode” has the ability to turn yourself, what data will be used for the whereabouts of the owner. This will be taken into account GPS, NFC, and MAC addresses. In addition, account will be taken noted in the calendar of events. For example, if the calendar marks the meeting, then at the specified time, the smartphone will not disturb its owner. Off “invisible mode” automatically when the user leaves a certain place.
