Whenever I take a picture with the front camera on Snapchat on my Xiaomi Mi Max 2, it makes a loud fake camera shutter sound.

I have tried putting the phone on mute/do not disturb and having the ringer volume, alarm volume, and media volume off, and it still makes the sound. I have gone into the camera app settings and turned off the camera sounds, which works for my default camera app (I can take pictures on it with no sound) but it still makes the sound on Snapchat.

Does anyone know how to disable this sound? I'd be surprised if Snapchat made its own camera shutter sound which isn't mutable, surely it just uses the device's settings and sounds, right?

After a lot of struggle, I found a solution. It might not be a permanent one but for now it works. Just download an older version where the sound is not in the app yet.

Easy solution - just press the moon icon on the top right corner of the screen on Snapchat to turn on Snapchat night mode and leave it on.

If you have Snapchat alpha enabled, turning on flash or night mode will disable the shutter sound.

To enable Snapchat alpha right now in the new update, you have to open the Snapchat map and search Bermuda. You'll find a ghost that can enable alpha mode.

Go to your Camera app → open Settings, and turn off Camera sound. Because Snapchat uses the Xiaomi's Camera, it inherits this setting.

  • Snapchat uses the device's camera, but it doesn't use other camera apps, and thus those settings won't be inherited.

It's because of the rear camera.

Switch it to the front camera on your phone so when your app opens, it shows you on the app screen. And now there's no more sound when you open or close your app, as long as you are using the front camera and always set it back to open the front camera on your phone.

  • I don't think this has anything to do with the question, which is about "taking a photo" not "opening the app".

First of all, Snapchat will access your mobile camera application because it has the permission given by the developers, one thing you can stop this by the following statements.

Go to Setting - Apps - Snapchat - then click on the launch button - then go to running apps - then just choose Snapchat and select stop. By this, you can stop the service of this app.
