Do Not Disturb function in Android 6 on a Nexus 6.

I have had no luck at all getting this to work! I want to set Do Not Disturb to block all calls and text announcements from everyone except starred contacts (family).
I have set up four starred contacts and made sure that the DND function is set to accept those only, and also set the text client (GoSMS) to function in Priority mode, but when DND is activated it just blocks all calls and text announcements.
I can't find anyone else on the web who appears to be having this problem so it must be me! So anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Have you tried a different SMS app say Google Messenger to see if it is a GoSMS or an Android bug?

I think it's actually a problem with GoSMS. Messenger seems to work - sometimes - but it's not perfect. I shall abandon trying to fix it for now. Thanks anyway.  Smiley

Uninstalled GoSMS and using Messenger (Google), it still doesn't work, so it must be a problem with Android 6. Any suggestions gratefully received.  Smiley
