For certain contacts, I want to silence vibration for incoming calls and SMS messages.

I am not asking about silencing the audio notification and ringtone. This is already well documented.

Automation is the preferred option. Many apps are available. I prefer using MacroDroid , since it is free (upto 5 macros) and easy to learn. To understand how MacroDroid works and required settings, my answer here


Your macros would look like this

  • Macro 1: Kill Vibration (name of macro )

Triggers:

  1. Call incomingSelect contactChoose from contacts

  2. SMS receivedSelect contactChoose from contacts

Actions:

Vibrate Enable/ DisableSet Vibrate and set Normal (Vibrate off). Click OK

Constraints: None (leave blank)

  • Macro 2: Enable Vibration for others (name of macro )

Triggers:

  1. Call incomingSelect contactChoose from contacts

  2. SMS receivedSelect contactChoose from contacts

Actions:

Vibrate Enable/ DisableSet Vibrate and set Silent (Vibrate on). Click OK

Constraints: None (leave blank)

Explanation

  1. Your question explicitly asks only for vibration to be silenced (but ring tone would be heard)

  2. Macro 1 does that for both incoming calls and SMS for selected contacts

  3. Macro 2 does the opposite for contacts other than selected in Macro 1 (you have to choose others- if you don't reverse Macro 1 action, vibration would be off for all)

  4. Tested on Moto X Play Marshmallow (6.0.1)
