    Is there an app or method that would mute incoming sounds/vibration for Hangouts/SMS until I dismiss the notification?

    I'm always getting short texts from people instead of one long one. So my phone dings/vibrates for each one. I want to know about the first one, but not every one after that, at least until I put my phone down again.

    If it was possible to do this on a per-contact basis, that would be even better.

    I'm fine with rooting my phone or whatever else I need to do to fix this.

    The Hangouts app is limited on settings when it comes to sms. Take a look at the third party clients and see if anything offers those settings. Otherwise, I don't know of anything else that would work.

    Thanks, I'll try that first. I found this for Tasker. Just not sure if I can make it specific to Hangouts. Also, Tasker would be a time sink for me.

    I pretty sure Tasker would work fine. But as you mentioned, will require time to setup right. Good luck, let us know how it goes.
