How to mute or turn down the volume of your Galaxy S6
An alternative method to turning off the camera sound on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge 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 Galaxy S6 until the phone goes into vibrate mode. When the volume sound is on mute on the Galaxy S6, the camera shutter sound will not be heard when you go to take a picture.
Use a third party camera app
A great way to turn off the Galaxy S6 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 Galaxy S6.
Plugging headphones in won’t work
A great concept to turn off the camera sound on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge 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 Galaxy S6 this will not work, as the smartphone separates media audio from notification sounds, so the sound will still play from the speakers as normal.
