No one can deny what an amazing camera app you have on your LG G6 or LG G7 smartphone. The list of questions on how to make the best of it is quite generous, but today we’re going to focus on something that many would love to know – how to turn off LG G6 and LG G7 camera shutter sound.
If you’ve used it even just once, you’ve heard that shutter sound from the moment you take a snapshot. All smartphones and all their Camera apps have it. It’s the law that forces manufacturers to introduce this feature as in many places it is illegal to take a photograph without making any sound.
Even so, many people feel annoyed by this sound. Just as many simply don’t want to draw attention to them when taking a selfie. Whatever your reasons may be, as long as you’re not breaking the law, you should be able to turn off the LG G6 and LG G7 camera shutter sound.
From where we stand, you have two options to do so:
- You mute the phone from the Volume Down button;
- You use a third-party camera app that doesn’t make this sound.
When you long press the Volume Down button of your LG G6 or LG G7 until it switches from the loud ring mode to vibration and, ultimately, to mute, no other notification sound will come out of it, the camera shutter sound included.
When you use a different camera app than the built-in app, as long as it doesn’t come with this audio feature, you shouldn’t be hearing any shutter noise.
The reason why you really need to mute the device and you just can’t plug the headphones in is very simple. This annoying sound is not a media audio but a notification sound. And your smartphone is specifically built to handle media audio and notification sounds separately.
That’s why you don’t hear the music from the speakers when you have the headphones plugged in but you do hear all the notification sounds, even the LG G6/LG G7 camera shutter sound. They are two very different things!
If you don’t feel like switching your phone from loud ring to mute every time when you take a photo, you can use the Google Play Store to test other camera apps and see which one will best fit your needs.
