    Default silence phone except for the alarm clock - is it possible?

    my wife has trouble sleeping at night and uses her phone as her alarm clock. is there a way to put the phone on a 'sleep' mode where the only thing that'll make noise is the alarm clock?

    if so, how?

    Thanks,

    Andrew

    If you put the phone on Mute/Silent, that will kill any audio except Alarms and Media. To elaborate the media part, if you put your phone in Silent, and then 10 minutes later play a YouTube video, you won't have to adjust the volume.

    I have an app installed from Play, called Nights Keeper. It is basically a Do Not Disturb app that i can set times for. Basically, an app that sets silent mode at a preset time (that is user adjustable)
