Facebook has launched a “Quiet Mode” feature for the platform’s mobile app.

According to reports, the new feature will stop “most” of the app’s push notifications with the exemption of legally required information such as privacy updates. When a user opens the app while Quiet Mode is still in place, they will receive a reminder from Facebook that the feature is still active. Quiet Mode will be available to toggle manually and on schedule, providing its users the freedom to stay away from the app whenever they please.

“As we all adjust to new routines and staying home, setting boundaries for how you spend your time online can be helpful. Whether it’s to help you focus on your family and friends, sleep without distraction or manage how you spend your time at home, we have tools that can help you find the right balance for how you use Facebook,” the company said in a COVID-19 information blog post.

Quiet Mode is available now to iOS users and will come to Android in May.

In related news, Facebook Gaming launched a helpful “Tournaments” tool.
