This manuscript represents a survey of some results on smoothing inequalities for some probability metrics. Some distances between distribution functions are considered such are Kolmogorov distance, Lévy distance and distance in variation and relations between them are discussed. Some of other considered distances are distances in some metrics, for example \(L^p\)-metric including special case the \(L^1\)-metric, ideal Zolotarev metric and transport metric. At the end of the paper some estimates for the considered distances are given.
