There is a Moto action which precisely allows us to do it in an extremely simple way, and it is by turning our wrist to leave the phone on the table, face down, and that it is silenced automatically. With this Moto action the phone will be silenced completely just by turning it face down. So if in the middle of a meeting it sounds when you receive some type of notification, you just have to quickly turn it on the table to stop those notifications and sounds.

How active?

The truth is that it is very simple, because Motorola allows you to access these Moto actions directly from a dedicated app. For this you just have to run the app Moto Actions and do the following:

  • Enter the Moto Actions app
  • Press the three horizontal stripes
  • Enter the «Moto Actions» section
  • Activate the action «Rotate to Do Not Disturb«

Now you can make a kind of tutorial from this option with which to test how this mode works once it has been activated. When this is the case, all you have to do is turn the phone with your wrist to silence it.

Of course, we must bear in mind that it should always be rotated on some surface, since it is necessary for the proximity sensor to detect its proximity, otherwise it will not be silenced. So if you make the turn without leaving it on any object, this action will not be activated. Of course it is one of the best actions that Motorola’s mobiles have, at least it seems to us one of the most useful, one of those that you will use continuously.
