Today’s tips and tricks post was inspired by the question: Will an incoming call interrupt the stream if you’re live on a smartphone or tablet?

The answer is yes, but fortunately, there is a simple way around it—just turn on the phone’s Do Not Disturb feature.

Here’s how to prevent phone calls from interrupting a live stream on an iOS device:

  1. Go to Settings and select ‘Do Not Disturb
  2. Turn ‘Do Not Disturb’ on
  3. Turn ‘Scheduled’ off
  4. Under the ‘Silence’ option, select ‘Always
  5. Under ‘Allow Calls From’, select the ‘No One’ option
  6. Turn ‘Repeated Calls’ off

Here’s how to prevent phone calls from interrupting a live stream on an Android device:

  1. Go to Settings and select ‘Sounds
  2. Turn ‘Silent mode’ on
  3. Turn ‘Vibrate in silent mode’ off
  4. Navigate to ‘Do not disturb’ and enable the setting
  5. Under both ‘Calls’ and ‘Messages,’ select the ‘No one’ option

When you’re done using the app, simply revert all of the settings back to their previous state.

That’s all there is to it!
