How to turn off Gboard (Google Keyboard) Sounds on Galaxy Smartphones and Tablets

The Gboard aka Google Keyboard does not come pre-installed on Samsung smartphones or tablets. So, if you already have that, we are assuming you’ve downloaded it from Google Play Store. Gboard is popular among Android users as it supports over 900 languages, which is almost more than double what the default Samsung keyboard offers. In addition, it offers a variety of emojis, GIFs, and stickers, which are limited to the Samsung keyboard. That’s not all, the Gboard also allows real-time translation of messages, just in case you’re talking to someone in a different language. That’s why most Samsung users, including me, have enabled Google keyboards on their flagship smartphones.

That said, you will still have to turn OFF the Google keyboard sound on your Samsung smartphone or tablet. So, if you are frustrated with that annoying ticking sound while chatting with your friends over Facebook, it’s best to keep it off. We have mentioned step-by-step methods on how to turn off the sound of the Google keyboard on your Samsung Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy A series & other Galaxy smartphones.

c) Why is my screen keyboard making sounds when I type on my Samsung smartphone?

It’s fairly simple than what we have recommended before. You have to put your phone on ‘Silent” or “Vibration” mode in order to mute the keyboard or dial-pad sound on your Samsung smartphone or tablet. However, there’s a drawback to doing that. The incoming calls, messages, or app notifications will be also muted or set to only vibrate.

Therefore, it is best to turn off the Samsung keyboard sound from the Settings menu of the smartphone.
