Snapchat is a unique social media platform that you can use to capture or send your moments in the form of snaps. Upon launching the app, you will land directly on the camera screen. You just have to tap the camera button 🔘 to tap a snap or long press on it to record a video. For every snap captured, you will hear the camera shutter sound. If you prefer to take snaps without any sound, you need to turn off the camera shutter sound on Snapchat.
Snapchat doesn’t have a built-in feature to turn off the shutter sound. You need to use the device settings to turn off the camera sound.
How to Turn Off Camera Shutter Sound on Snapchat [Android & iPhone] – Universal Method
The best and easiest to turn off the camera shutter sound on Snapchat is by putting your smartphone in silent mode. It will reflect on the Snapchat app automatically. Hence, you will not hear the camera shutter sound while taking the Snaps.
For Android smartphones, switching to Silent mode varies with brands. However, in most brands, go to the Notification Panel and tap the Sound icon. This will change the setting to Vibrate. Again, tap on the icon to get the Silent mode on Android smartphone. This will turn off the camera shutter sound on Snapchat.
For iPhones, you can turn on Silent Mode using the Slider switch. You can use the Slider switch to turn off the Snapchat shutter sound on iPhone XR, 11, 12, 13, 14 Pro Max, or any other iPhone model.
Decrease the Volume
Another easiest solution to take snaps without a shutter sound is by turning down the device’s volume.
#1. Before taking a Snap, look for the volume down button on a smartphone.
#2. Press the button until the device volume turns to zero.
#3. Now, take a Snap and you will not hear any shutter sound.
iOS users can reduce the volume from the Control Center too. Open the Control center and turn off the volume by sliding down the volume bar.
Turn On Do Not Disturb Mode
Turning on the DnD or Do Not Disturb Mode will make your phone enter into silent mode. Turning on DnD will turn off the camera sound on Snapchat. You can use the DnD mode to turn off the camera sound in Snapchat without muting other notification sounds.
On Android devices, you can find the option to turn on DND on the notification panel. Whereas DND is one of the modes in Share focus status for iPhone and it can be enabled from the Control Center.
