In pokemon go it annoys me that even if you disable all sound, when you need to start the camera for a scan it will always do a loud bloop.

Is there a way to disable it? Kinda annoying when you are listening to music only to be blasted by it when you get a poffin scan quest.

  • I don't have this problem at all. It might be specific to your model of phone? Commented Sep 15, 2022 at 6:42

If you're using a Samsung device you may be able to run Sound Assistant, which is an official app that let's you control volume on a per-app basis.

Otherwise App Volume Control or a similar app may work, as long as its Service works.

    It is also an artifact of the laws of Japan and south Korea to try to stop people from snapping pictures of people without there knowledge.

  • @Styxsksu Excellent point. I don't think it's only those countries that have this law, but I'm not sure which others do.
