The new LG G7 has quite a reputation for having a really amazing camera which users really love to use to capture their photos and selfies. It is pretty common to hear the shutter sound when you take a photo using your smartphone camera. There are certain people who do not like this sound and as such, they would prefer to mute it.

If you stay in the United States, you should be aware that there is a law that does not allow smartphone users to mute the shutter sound due to privacy laws. The law specifically states that smartphones with digital cameras should make a sound when taking photos. Make sure to keep this in mind. Below we will show you how to mute the camera shutter sound on your LG G7. We will also show you how to reduce the sound a bit so you do not break any laws.

How to Disable Camera Shutter Sound on LG G7

The first trick you can use to mute the camera shutter sound on your LG G7 is to turn off or lower the sound of your smartphone camera. First, you can just hold down the Volume Down button of your device until it enters Vibrate mode. Now, if you take a photo, the shutter sound will not be made. If you want your device to keep the sound but lowered, simply press the Volume Down button till it gets to a level you want.

Keep in Mind That Connecting Your Headphones will Not Work.

Some users may think that connecting their headphones to their phone when taking a photo will disable the shutter sound. This may work on some devices and the sound will be played through the speaker of the headphone, not the phone’s speaker. Well, it does not work the same way on the LG G7. This is so because the LG G7 plays media audio separately from alerts and notifications and the device recognizes this sound as a notification. So even if you connect a headphone, the shutter sound will still be played via the phone’s speaker.

Use a Third Party Camera App

You can also use a third party camera app on your device. Simply go to the Google Play Store and search for camera apps available. You can check out which apps do not use the shutter sound on your device.
