Your Google Pixel 4A can make noises, light up, or vibrate to let you know about an app notification. Everyone has their own preferences for the notification types that they want to receive, and you might not like it when the phone vibrates. Therefore you may be wondering how to stop your Pixel 4A from vibrating.
Most of the different apps on your device have their own combination of notification settings. This makes it easy for you to know which app has sent a notification without even looking at it. You may have even found that you can adjust the type of notification vibration for some apps.
But switching all of those app notification settings to not vibrate can be tedious, especially if you have a lot of apps that are giving you notifications.
Luckily there is a setting on the Google Pixel 4A that allows you to turn off haptics and vibrations entirely, by simply adjusting one button.
How to Stop the Google Pixel 4A from Vibrating
- Open the Apps menu.

- Select Sound & vibration.
- Touch Vibration & haptics.

By completing the steps above you are going to turn off all of the vibrations and haptics on the device. This means that vibration from any apps, not just notifications, will not occur.
If you don’t want to turn off vibration and haptics completely, you can choose to adjust the individual options on this menu instead. The available options are:
- Vibrate for calls
- Ring vibration
