How to patch an APK file so that its permanently mute?

For example if I want to send a game to my friend but don't want him to hear its sound?

Can I edit permissions related to Audio?

  • most apps/games are developed with toggle switch to turn off the Game volume, from it's settings. Don't your game/app has this feature? And AFAIK you may not be able to edit App features once app is installed. – AADAndroidEnthusiasts Jul 30 '15 at 6:56
  • Yes but I want to force mute it – Amr Ibrahim Khudair Jul 30 '15 at 7:04
  • There is no audio permission, because (nothing personal) that would be ridiculous. Apps rely on queues to play audio e.g. Play track 1 when player hits start. In theory, if you removed all the sounds from the apk (or replace them) it will mute the app. – Dan Brown Jul 30 '15 at 8:38

    Why can't your friend opt for turning the speakers off when playing your game? That's rather easy. – Firelord Jul 30 '15 at 11:25
  • What is your device information and os and are your rooted? And which app/game you are trying to mute? – Lucky Jul 30 '15 at 11:34
