    Once the phone has been unlocked, we will see the home screen and at the bottom, we will see these icons

    It is one of these icons that we now need to access as we need to open up the applications folder.

  5. 5
    In the applications folder, we need to find the Play Games application
    .
    Mine is located here. We can see that there is an icon which looks like a green controller and underneath, it says "Play Games". Your Play Games application may be in a different position in this folder. Therefore, you will need to find it and press down on it to enter the application. What we want to do in this video tutorial is show you how to mute and unmute a game in this application. What this means is that if we mute a game, we will not receive any notifications from it. We don't want to turn Off notifications for all the games because then we may miss notifications that we need. This allows us to keep particular games silent so that we can continue receiving notifications from other games.

    To mute a game, we want to select a game that we have already downloaded and installed

    We have one here called "Warlings" and we can press down on it. We don't need to enter the game but we just need to enter the game area in the Play Games application.
