Looking for a way to disable the camera shutter sound effect on your Samsung phone camera app. It’s a rather simple task to do if you got an 2019 phone or later. Starting with the Galaxy s10. The camera shutter sound toggle is no longer present within the camera app settings menu.

That’s because Samsung decided to wrap simple tasks into Bixby to make it more useful. While Bixby's reception from 2017 was meh... This new version called Bixby Routines is rather quite useful this time around and considering its proprietary in Samsung phones. It beats having to find unconventional mods/tweaks.

What is Bixby Routines?

Well to simply put it, Bixby Routines is a preloaded Tasker app by Samsung. You can also sideload Bixby Routines on Samsung devices running at least Nougat or later. Besides being a voice assistant, Bixby Routines can be used to create some interesting/useful tweaks. For more information on Bixby Routines: Click Here
