How To Turn OFF Camera Shutter Sound On LG V20
The new LG V20 has an amazing new camera with high megapixel quality. A common question asked about the new LG smartphone is how to turn off the LG V20 camera sound when it shutters. 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 V20 and also just turn down camera sound on the LG V20.
How to mute or turn down the volume of your LG V20
An alternative method to turning off the camera sound on the LG V20 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 V20 until the phone goes into vibrate mode. When the volume sound is on mute on the LG V20, 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 V20 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 V20 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
A great way to turn off the LG V20 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 V20.
