Lollipop users all share a common frustration, and that is the lack of a true silent mode for your device. Sadly, Google did away with the silent mode in favour of notification priorities, but SoundHUD is an app that brings that all back.

SoundHUD is a customisable replacement volume panel that doesn’t require root access and will give you full control over your volume settings.

Silent mode HOW-TO
1. Go to System settings -> Sound & notification -> Interruptions
2. Turn OFF all priority interruption switches
3. Get up, do a little dance, and enjoy the silence! No more calls, notifications, reminders – just alarms!

You get a 2 week free trial of SoundHUD and then it’s only $1.50 to unlock it, which is well worth it.

So what are you waiting for? Grab it from the link below now.

  1. I will have to look at this, as I don’t get it. It advises that to turn on Silent Mode, Go to System settings -> Sound & notification -> Interruptions and turn OFF all priority switches. Well, in Lollipop I could go into Sounds and turn off Priority for all apps and then put the phone in Priority mode and all would be silenced as well.
    What am I missing that makes me want to pay for an app that tells me to do the same thing?

    • This gives you a full volume control panel, like back in KitKat. It’s similar to what Samsung offer in Lollipop on their software.

  2. It’s funny, I immediately scrolled to the comments to find out how I could gain this functionality for free. Thanks for not disappointing!
