Easily Mute Your Camera Shutter without Root

Sometimes, silence is golden. This especially holds true when you’re trying to capture prized memories of loved ones. Naturally, having a camera shutter make a sound would ruin the moment and turn a candid into something a bit more staged.

We’ve covered a few ways of muting your camera shutter in the past. However, these have all required root access, something which unfortunately not everyone has. Now thanks to XDA Senior Member providence, there is a simple and non-root option that mutes your phone’s audio when you enter your camera app and unmutes the phone’s audio when you exit the app.

While this solution was originally created for use with the author’s Note 3, it should work on practically any other device, as long as the muting app recognizes that you’ve in fact opened your phone’s camera app. So if you use your phone’s default camera app. it’ll probably work for you. The app created using Tasker, but obviously does not require Tasker to run.

Head over to the application thread to get started. Please note, however, that in some regions muting your camera shutter is not permitted. Please obey local laws and don’t use such a mod in these regions.

Find The Best Apps With Google’s Picks & Other Tricks

The Google Play Store, weighing in with more than 1.4 million apps at last count, is a vast expanse of quality content and APK duds alike. To put this into context, it would take the average user more than 8 days of continuous scrolling to make it through the whole list at two per second, let alone the added months to click through and check out screenshots, or years to separate the wheat from the chaff via thorough review.
