Use case:

  • Spotify runs an ad. You know how obnoxious those can be.
  • I somehow temporarily mute for say 60 secs (duration should be parametrized).
  • After 60 seconds, volume level comes back to normal, hopefully past ads.

How can I accomplish this?

You can do this with Workflow using the following workflow. Workflows can be run from a share menu, Today widget or by opening the app.

Since Workflow was acquired by Apple and integrated into iOS 12, it should also be possible with Shortcuts in iOS 12.
