How To Disable Camera Shutter LG G5
For those that own LG G5, you may want to know how to disable camera shutter sound on the LG G5. This camera shutter sound is annoying to some people and the clicking sound can even draw unwanted attention when taking a selfie.
For those in the United States, turning off the camera sound is illegal, as the law states that cell phones containing digital cameras must make a sound when taking a picture. The following is a guide on how to turn off the camera sound on the LG G5 and also just turn down camera sound on the LG G5.
How to mute or turn down the volume of your LG G5
The first method method to turn off the camera sound on the LG G5 is to mute or turn down the volume on the smartphone. The way you can do this is by pressing the “volume down” button on the side of LG G5 until the phone goes into vibrate mode. When the volume sound is on mute on the LG G5, the camera shutter sound will not be heard when you go to take a picture.
Plugging headphones in won’t work
A great concept to turn off the camera sound on the LG G5 that doesn’t work is to plug headphones in to the smartphone. In most cases when you plug headphones in, all sounds from the device will play through the headphones instead of from the smartphone. But with the LG G5 this will not work, as the smartphone separates media audio from notification sounds, so the sound will still play from the speakers as normal.
Use a third party camera app
An alternative method to turn off the LG G5 camera sound is by using a third party camera app. The reason for this is because the stock Android camera app plays a shutter sound when you take a picture, but not all camera apps do this. You can search for different apps on the Google Play Store and test the camera apps to see which app doesn’t make a camera noise on your LG G5.
