Recently, a lot of users have noticed Twitter’s new notification sound that triggers when you swipe down to refresh the posts. In this quick post, I’ll explain exactly what you need to do to get rid of this new feature using three different methods.
Method 1: Phone Notifications
If you would like to get rid of all notifications entirely, you should go to the sound settings of your phone and switch to no notification sounds. For most phones, there should be a button that can be pressed from the quick buttons when you swipe down or you can type sound in the search settings, look for notification sounds, and then switch it off.
Another trick for this is to press the volume rocker, expand sound settings, and reduce notification sounds to the barest minimum or select the mute option.
Method 2: Disable App Notifications
A second way to go around this is to disable notification sounds for the Twitter app. Doing this is rather easy as all you need to do is go to app settings, check app notifications, and disable all app notifications for Twitter or any other app for that matter.
Method 3: Use Twitter Settings
The third method which most other bloggers are talking about is to disable this sound from the twitter app settings. Here are the directions:
- Go to Twitter app settings, then tap on ‘Settings and privacy’
- Tap on ‘Accessibility, display and language’, then on ‘Display’
- Lastly, turn off the ‘Sound Effects’ switch
