    Alarm apps to break through Quiet Hours now in Windows 10


    We just enabled this in the next Insider fast-ring flight of the Creators Update! All third-party alarm apps will break through quiet hours now, just like the first-party alarm app!

    Thank you everyone for letting us know that this feature was important to you!

    What would be even better is to have an advanced option in "Settings -> Apps & features" for each app to turn on/off allowing to break through Quiet Hours.

    I was thinking that but as it says in the comments on the link that is up to the developer of the app.
    if an app sets a toast to scenario="alarm", it will break through quiet hours. Adaptive and interactive toast notifications for Windows 10 Tiles and Toasts has a great post on notifications.
    I guess if MS don't make the facility to allow only certain apps to break through quiet hours then badly written apps could all break through - whether they were alarms or not - if the toast notification was set like that. Presumably turning off notifications altogether on a per-app basis (which you can already do) would stop this though.
