A new icon appeared in my notifications today. It looks like Remove Circle from the Material icons, except with an additional outline.

There's no info/action when I try to press on it; if I try to drag the notification section down, the icon disappears until the section collapses back.

Rebooting did not remove it.

It looks almost like the left-most icon on the right side of this screenshot (source):


That icon certainly looks like a do not disturb icon (DND).

You can turn it off from quick settings or in Settings >> Sounds >> DND

  • In my android nougat device, thats the same exact icon that appears when DND is enabled – xavier_fakerat Jun 11 '17 at 18:50
  • This is almost the right answer. While there's no DND setting in Settings >> Sounds, I saw that I couldn't change the ringer volume, and I had to use the notifications "switch" on my phone hardware (toggles between all/priority/silent). Thanks for the help. – ashes999 Jun 11 '17 at 20:47
  • anytime :) glad you fixed it – xavier_fakerat Jun 11 '17 at 20:51
