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.
