To block calls when you are using a music app on your Samsung mobile, you can use the "Do Not Disturb" mode. Here are the steps to set it up:

  1. Open the "Settings" app on your Samsung mobile.
  2. Scroll down and tap on "Sounds and Vibration".
  3. Tap on "Do Not Disturb".
  4. Toggle on the "Turn on now" option to enable Do Not Disturb mode.
  5. Tap on "Allow exceptions".
  6. Select "Custom" and then tap on "Calls".
  7. Choose "From contacts only" or "From starred contacts only" depending on your preference.
  8. Press the back button to return to the previous screen.
  9. Toggle on the "Allow exceptions" option for "Media" or "Music" depending on the name of the app you are using.
  10. Tap on "Add exception".
  11. Select the music app you want to allow notifications from.
  12. Press the back button to return to the previous screen.
  13. Toggle on the "Allow repeat callers" option if you want to allow calls from the same number to come through.
  14. Tap on "Schedule" to set up a specific time for Do Not Disturb mode if desired.
  15. Press the back button to exit the settings menu.

Once these settings are in place, calls from anyone who is not on your allowed list will be silenced while you are using the music app. You will still receive notifications from the music app as long as you have added it to the allowed exceptions list.
