This instruction is intended to answer the question: “How to mute the camera sound on Android?”.
There are different moments in life when we want to photograph something and attract the attention of outsiders. In most new mobile devices, just turn on “Silent mode” and this mute camera shutter sound.
But, there are many other smartphones or tablets in which remove camera sound this method will not work. A striking example of this is the device from Samsung. And all this is because South Korean legislation prohibits taking pictures with the camera shutter sound off.
We want to offer you several methods for carrying out “silent” photography.
Vibro mode (silent mode)
As we said earlier, on most mobile devices to turn off the sound of the camera is enough to put your gadget in “Silent mode” or “Vibro”. After such actions, no one will guess that you are taking a photofixation of what is happening.
Install a third-party camera application
The program. “High-speed camera (quiet)” copes with this task well, the name is translated by Google by the translator by default.

Editing Camera Settings
The third way to turn off the camera shutter sound on a smartphone involves making changes to the settings of the standard Camera application.

This method should be suitable for the vast majority of smartphones and tablets on Android with the exception of Samsung.
So, you need to go to the camera settings and find the “Shutter Sound” menu item there. We put the switch in the off position and rejoice.
Unfortunately, I have no such possibility on Nexus 4 (Android 5.0.1).
Editing the sound files of the “ui” folder
The fourth method requires root-rights on a smartphone or tablet. If someone else got root access to your device, then read the detailed instructions here.
So, getting root access to your gadget, you will automatically get the ability to edit system files and folders.
Next, we need any file manager for Android. We will give an example of working with ES Explorer. This is a free program. Download it from Google Play:
Setting up access to system files and providing root access to an application is described in this article.
To turn off the camera shutter sound on an Android smartphone or tablet, open the file manager and go to the following address: / system / media / audio / ui / In this folder we look for two sound files: camera_click.ogg and camera_focus.ogg
On different smartphones, these names may differ slightly, but this does not change the essence of the issue. Next, we rename the mentioned files. Removal is not recommended. Because, perhaps someday, you will need to return them to their original form.
Visually, it looks like this:
