After you get your Amazon Fire TV Stick set up so that you can watch videos from places like Amazon Prime, Netflix and Hulu, you will inevitably encounter some things on the device that you want to change.
One of these things might be the sounds that play as you navigate through the menus. It’s a fairly faint sound that is meant to let you know that you’ve performed an action, but you may find it unnecessary, annoying, or distracting.
Luckily this is an option on the Fire Stick that you can adjust. Our tutorial below will show you how to turn off the navigation sounds on your Amazon Fire TV Stick so that you can navigate and browse in silence.
How to Stop the Amazon Fire TV Stick Navigation Sounds
The steps in this article were performed on an Amazon Fire Stick 4K, but will also work on most other versions of the Fire Stick.
You can also read our article on how to delete apps on Firestick and start removing some of the streaming applications that you aren’t watching.
Step 1: Navigate to your Home screen (you can just press the Home icon on the remote) then choose Settings at the top of the screen.
Step 2: Scroll to the right and select the Display & Sounds menu item.
Step 3: Select the Audio option.
Step 4: Choose the Navigation Sounds option to switch it to off.
Now as you navigate through your menus you will notice that you no longer hear the sound that would play when you did so previously.
Note that this will not affect other sounds on the device. For example, audio will still play as it had before when you are streaming a movie or TV show.
