How to Turn Off Galaxy S6 Camera Shutter Sound

The new Samsung Galaxy S6 comes equipped with many excellent features and tons of settings to control almost every aspect of the experience, most of them for the 16 megapixel camera. Here we will explain how to turn off the camera shutter sound.

While we’ve already detailed everything you need to know about the Galaxy S6 camera, especially the shutter sound. This phone has so many settings that some users may be a little frustrated trying to do the easiest tasks.

For whatever reason, this is a feature that most smartphones don’t allow you to change. Be it for legal reasons, privacy and respect, or just carriers who prefer certain things. Most Samsung devices do not allow this to be turned off, but some Galaxy S6 owners have the option depending on the carrier version, so read on to find out how to disable it.

Oddly, only some of the Galaxy S6 models in the United States will let you mute the Galaxy S6 camera sound, and others will not. Most likely users can try third party camera apps or software to disable it otherwise follow below how-to and turn it off in settings.

Most models in the world, our AT&T unit and others allow you to tap a few buttons in the settings to turn off the camera shutter sound completely. And it only takes a few seconds to do so.

It is worth noting that the above models should lose the shutter sound, as long as you turn the phone volume all the way down after vibration and set it to completely silent. However, we don’t have all five carrier versions here to test.


Launch the camera app on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and tap the gear-shaped settings button. It should be located at the bottom left as shown in the image below. This will bring you to a fairly large list of options, controls and settings for the Galaxy S6 camera. Scroll down to find what you are looking for and turn it off as shown below.

There are so many options and controls on the Galaxy S6, which is nice but so many that many users don’t scroll down far enough to find the camera shutter option. Scroll down and tap that to turn it off and you’re done. As long as your carrier allows the option, it’s that easy.

Tap to turn the shutter sound “off” and you’re done. Now when you take a photo there will be no sound, but the rest of your device will still have normal volume and volume levels. This is much better than turning the entire device and all sounds to silent mode while using the camera.

Again, this option to disable the Galaxy S6 camera shutter is not available on all models of the Galaxy S6. Some have it, some don’t. It may also not be available in the same location on every Galaxy S6 carrier. Shown above is an AT&T model and you may need to look into other variants.
