    In trying to keep text alerts from sounding while I'm on a call, I keep seeing pages with instructions like this:

    How to disable SMS text alerts during calls on Galaxy S8/S8+ Plus

    From the Home screen of your device, simply access the general Menu and follow these steps:

    Tap on Settings;
    Identify the Sound & Notifications icon, then tap on it too;
    Select the Other sounds option;
    Tap on Call;
    Tap on Call Alerts;
    Tap on Call SignalsLook for the option labeled as “Notification during calls”;
    Uncheck its box.

    That might work on the S5; it doesn't work on the S8. For one thing, sounds and notifications are two separate selections; you can't get there from here.

    So how do you silence text alerts during calls on the S8?

    There might be a simpler way, but you can accomplish this using apps like Macrodroid or Tasker. It would require a simple macro to reduce notification volume to zero while on call and the reverse once the call is over.
