Enabling phone-free mode in the Bose Sleep app lets you use your sleepbuds with a limited set of features while your mobile device is off or in another room.
You may want to use this feature if:
- You prefer sleeping without electronics nearby
- You don’t need to set a wake-up alarm or hear notifications during the night
Because the sleepbuds are disconnected from your device, they can’t play alarms or receive notifications when phone-free mode is enabled.
When you enable phone-free mode, the sleepbuds begin playing a selected masking sound as soon as you remove them from the charging case. They continue to play that sound until your sleep timer settings expire or you return them to the case.
To enable phone-free mode:
Connect the sleepbuds to the Bose Sleep app
Select Settings in the upper right-hand corner
Below OPTIONS, select Phone-Free Mode
A message appears for things to keep in mind. Select Got It
After the "Optimize playback" information, select Set Up Phone-Free Mode
Set your desired options for My Sounds, Sleep Timer, and Volume level. Select Enable Phone-Free Mode to activate
NOTE: While using phone-free mode, all alarms and notifications are disabled.
To disable phone-free mode
Once phone-free mode is enabled, the main screen in the Sleep app will show a Disable Phone-Free Mode button over the sleepbuds™. Select it to disable
You will see a confirmation screen. Select Yes to disable
