    So I like to put my phone on completely silent at night (otherwise I would never sleep), but I have a family member who isn't doing well and would like to be sure calls from my parents and brother will ALWAYS ring no matter what.

    Is there an app for this? I have a Nexus 6 if that matters

    I already searched pretty extensively with no real luck. Thanks for looking :)

    Isn't that part of making the contact a priority? I think that's native to Android now... If not I know there are apps that will do that.

    On my Note 4 it's native under do not disturb you can add exceptions which includes favorite contacts.

    Yes, just click the star on the contact screen (see below), then turn on Do Not Disturb.

    You can also set a schedule for when you want DND to activate and deactivate.

    As others have posted, Do Not Disturb is part of Android Marshmallow now for all phones and will do what you want.

    If that is also not working for you, just search in the app store you may find lot of applications regarding
