Will Your Alarm Go Off During a FaceTime Call? – Explained

With the advent of new technology, more and more people are using FaceTime to communicate with their friends and family. But what happens if your alarm goes off while you’re on a facetime call?

Will it interrupt the call, or will the alarm sound quietly in the background? Also whether other people on the call will hear your alarm or not? In this blog post, we will answer all of these questions. 

Will Your Alarm Go Off While on Facetime?

Yes, your alarm will still go off while you are on facetime. Also, it doesn’t matter if your iPhone is on silent; your alarm will still make noise.

If you want the alarm not to go off, then you have to turn it off manually before it can ring. Also, some people think that a facetime call ends when the alarm goes off, but it does not; it will continue until you turn off the call manually.

Unlike other calling apps like WhatsApp, which automatically silence the alarm sound when it rings, facetime currently does not have a silent alarm feature during a call.

It can be frustrating if your alarm rings during an important call, but you can still make it silent by using a silent ringtone.

Can Other Person Hear My Alarm on FaceTime?

No, other people in your facetime chat will not be able to hear your alarm sound. When your alarm goes off, only you will hear the alarm sound.

This is a great feature, and make sure your facetime calls don’t get disturbed because of your alarms. Similarly, if someone’s else alarm goes off during your facetime call, you will not hear any alarm sound.

How to Stop the Alarm from Ringing While on FaceTime?

There are two methods to stop the alarm from going off while on facetime.

  1. The best way to stop your alarm from going off is to turn it off before you start the call.
  2. The second method is to use a silent ringtone for your alarm. When you set a silent ringtone for your alarm, your alarm will not make any sound and will not disturb your facetime call.

Do Alarm Go Off on Do Not Disturb Mode While on Facetime Call?

If you have enabled do not disturb mode, then your alarm will still ring while on a facetime call. This is because do not disturb mode silences all incoming calls, texts, and other notifications, but it doesn’t stop alarms from going off.

Also, other features like Airplane mode and focus mode do not stop alarms from going off either.


To conclude, your alarm will still go off while on facetime, but there are ways to stop it from happening. The best way is to turn it off before starting the call or use a silent ringtone for your alarm.

Please do not rely on do not disturb mode or other similar features, as they will not stop your alarm from going off.
