Shutter Sound on Screenshot

[ Edited ]

 

I do know that not having the shutter sound for camera could be illegal in some places. 

But why on earth there is shutter sound for taking screenshots?????

 

Can blackberry please disable it? It is annoying when people around me suddenly look at me thinking I took their photo when I'm taking a screenshot.

Re: Shutter Sound on Screenshot

Screen shots can be done by holding the volume up and volume down buttons at the same time.

+1 for ability to turn off shutter sounds. I do not have such a restriction in my country and would like an OPTION to turn this off entirely. As is done with other platforms.

Looks like this is an oversight. There are no workarounds to this. Looks like we have to suffer with shutter sounds until blackberry decide to fix it.

Re: Shutter Sound on Screenshot

The shutter sound for camera and video is an explicit decision at BlackBerry.
As well as preventing third party apps to deactivate it.

I find the screenshot shutter sound unwanted indeed. I don't understand the developper who added that.

Re: Shutter Sound on Screenshot

For those there's no legal restriction on having shutter sound in their area, there are apps in Blackberry World that can deactivate the shutter sound.
