If you don’t want to let others know you are online, click the Active button at the top of the Google Chat page and select Away. If you don’t mind revealing your online status, but would like to stop notifications, select Do not disturb and then choose how long you want to snooze alerts. You can stop these notifications for up to 24 hours on desktop.

The same drop-down menu also has an option called Chat notification settings that lets you fine-tune alerts. Open the drop-down menu under Notification sounds and select None to disable audio alerts. You should also remember to scroll down to Email notifications and select Off from the drop-down menu. This will stop Google from annoying you with emails about chat notifications.

On Google Chat’s mobile apps, you can tap the three-line menu icon in the top-left corner and tap your email address. Then, hit Do not disturb and select how long you want to snooze notifications for. Google lets you activate DND mode for up to eight hours on mobile, which is a bit odd because on desktop you can stop alerts for up to 24 hours.
