  • Android users have took to Reddit over the past days to complain about the problems they’re having with Android 5.0 Lollipop. Apparently, the fact that there’s no silent mode in this release is causing them problems.


    The silent mode as you know it is gone, but the option per se is still available. Google did add 3 options to replace it. We’ve got the following options here: None, Priority and All. None will keep the phone completely silent, so there are no system notifications to be heard and it also means the screen won’t light up when you receive a notification or text. Priority will silence almost everything, except for alarms and certain notifications.

    It can also be activated automatically at some points during the day. Finally, All allows all notifications to go through normally. These settings will pop up by pressing the volume rocker on the handset. Priority and None aren’t exactly the silent mode, so that’s the problem. People don’t like that the screen no longer lights up when you get an incoming notification, like it did in the silent mode.

    I’m guessing the feature could return some way or the other.
