How to Turn Off Sound in Pokemon Go

The Pokemon Go experience on your mobile device includes a lot of different things. Whether you’re catching Pokemon, spinning Pokestops, or engaging in a raid battle, there are a lot of different elements to the game.

Pokemon make sounds when you tap on them, music plays when you play the game, and sound effects occur in other various situations. But if you want to play Pokemon Go in silence you can follow the steps below to turn off music and sound effects in the app.
