Android: How To Disable Touch Sounds and Key Tones

I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like it when my Android smartphone confirms every click with a tone. And I certainly don’t need it to beep when I dial a number.

If you’re annoyed by the constant beeping tones on your Android device, here’s how to disable it.

In the main menu, click Settings. Then tap on Sound.

The settings above will be named something different on other versions of Android and devices. Navigate through the menus, and uncheck the option to turn off Touch Tones.

    On my S4 the ‘Touch sounds’ option in the Sound settings keeps ticking itself back on. Now that is annoying.

    Yeah, I have the same problem on my S4.

    Trying to solve it with Tasker.

    i have alcatel s pop with 4.1 jelly bean
    and i don’t have sound option in the setting
    what to do?

      I don’t have that particular model on hand, and it’s possible that Alcatel has altered the interface and moved that option somewhere else. However, on the device running 4.1.2 that I currently have here, the option is under Settings – Sound – System.
