Twitter recently incorporated a new sound that is played every time the user updates their timeline. Although this can be seen as something fun at first because it is a novelty, over time can become quite a nuisance.

This problem is repeated for users with both iOS and Android phones, so the number of “affected” is particularly large taking into account that it is one of the most used social networks in the world.

Here’s how you can turn off this sound so it doesn’t play while you’re using the app:


1. The first step is to open the Twitter application and log in to the account where you want to disable the function. Once this is done, the user must access their profile by pressing the icon located at the top left of the screen.

2. Subsequently you must scroll until you locate the button identified as “Settings and privacy” and enter it. At this point you will see a list of options among which you must select the one where it reads “Accessibility, screen and languages”.

3. In the new menu that will appear on the screen, you must Click on the “Screen and sound” button and finally you will have to uncheck the “Sound effects” box.

4. After completing all these steps you will be able to return to your timeline and update it without any sound being played.


1. In the case of Android users, the steps are extremely similar because the first thing the user must do is enter the application and go to the profile.

2. After doing this you will have to Locate the “Settings and privacy” area and click on the “Accessibility, display and languages” option to be redirected to a new menu.

3. In this menu the user will have to access the “Sound” option and press the “Sound Effects” button.
