There can be occasions when you want to create a Snap but don’t want to distract people nearby by turning off the Snapchat camera sound on the app. The shutter noise is large enough to get other people’s attention in a quiet place. Let’s find out how you can use a silent mode to remove the noise.

How to turn off camera sound on Snapchat

Turning off camera sound on Snapchat can differ depending on what devices you use.

Turning off the sound on iOS devices

The camera sound on Snapchat works exactly the same as your default camera app on iPhone. When you want to mute the shutter sound on your iPhone, you can choose one of the following methods:

  • Turn on the silent switch on the left side
  • Press the volume button to lower the volume
  • Turn on DND mode (Do Not Disturb)

The same goes for Snapchat’s camera sound. By turning on the mute switch, lowering the volume, or turning on DND mode, you can turn off the camera sound on the Snapchat app.

Turning off the sound on Android phones

The detail methods can be different for Android phones since there are multiple manufacturers. But, largely, the same principles go to Android devices as well and you can disable the Snapchat shutter sound using the same methods that iOS users use. Android users can lower the volume or turn on the DND option. Or, you can enable the mute mode.

Turning on is the opposite. You can basically reverse what you have done to turn off the sound. You can turn off the silent mode, increase the volume, or turn off the DND mode.
