When you take a picture with your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or Note 9 camera in a crowded and animated place, you can barely hear the shutter sound. But it is precisely the quiet events that make you stress out about taking a picture without making everyone look at you. A wedding reception, a book launch, or a special meeting in a private place, all these and many others are special events that you can’t help but photograph. That’s when you want to learn how to turn off the Samsung Note 8 and Note 9 camera shutter sound.
If you’re spending the time over the web, searching for a solution for this problem it must be because you haven’t found the magic button that kills the shutter sound. And the reason why you haven’t found it is simple – it doesn’t exist. You have not a single setting, neither within your Camera app nor within your device’s general Sound settings that makes reference to this sound.
How is this possible and why did the manufacturer let something like this happen? Well, it didn’t happen, it was set like that on purpose. Moreover, it was dictated by the general laws that apply not only in America but also in many other countries. Wherever there is a digital camera, it must also be a sound that accompanies every picture it takes.
We have only 3 things to tell you:
- The one way to mute your Note 9 camera shutter sound is to mute or to turn down the volume of the entire device.
- The other way is to test several different third-party camera apps and maybe you will find one that doesn’t come with this shutter sound.
- The one thing you shouldn’t bother doing is to try plugging your headphones in because the camera shutter sound, as a notification sound, will go out through the speakers anyway.
Now that you know your options, perhaps we should only add the fact that turning off the camera shutter sound on Samsung Note 9 and Note 8 is against the law and you are doing it at your own risk. Other than that, you can start surfing the Play Store for a different, less noisy app, as of this moment.
