How to Disable Vibration for Notifications on Android

If you find the vibration or haptic feedback from notifications on your Android phone to be distracting, you’ll be glad to know that you can easily turn it off. While vibration can be useful, it can also be overwhelming when you receive a lot of notifications. Fortunately, there are different ways to disable vibration for notifications on Android phones. Let’s explore them.

Turn off Vibration for Notifications From All Apps at Once

You can remove vibration from the notifications of all Android apps using two methods.

Method 1: From Sound & Vibration Settings

  1. Open the Settings on your Android phone.
  2. Go to Sound & Vibration.
  3. Tap on Vibration & Haptics.
  4. Find the Notification vibration option and turn off the toggle.

Make sure the toggle next to Ring vibration is enabled if you want your phone to vibrate for incoming calls only.

Method 2: From Accessibility Settings

If you don’t find the vibration setting in the Sound & Vibration section, you can access it from the Accessibility settings.

  1. Open the Settings on your Android phone.
  2. Go to Accessibility.
  3. Scroll down and tap on Vibration & Haptics in the Interaction Controls section.
  4. Turn off the toggle for Notification vibration.

Turn off Notification Vibration for Messages and Other Apps

While the methods mentioned above will turn off vibration for notifications from all apps, you may sometimes want to disable notification vibration for specific apps, such as Messages. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open the Settings on your phone.
  2. Go to Apps and select the app for which you want to turn off notification vibration (e.g., Messages).
  3. Tap on Notifications.
  4. Tap on the Default or Incoming messages text.
  5. Scroll down and turn off the toggle for Vibration.
  6. Repeat step 4 for other notification categories or specific contacts.

Turn off Notification Vibration on Samsung Galaxy Phones

If you own a Samsung Galaxy phone, you can follow these steps to disable vibration for notifications:

  1. Open the Settings on your Samsung Galaxy phone.
  2. Go to Sounds and Vibration and then Notification vibration.
  3. Select Silent.

If you don’t see the Notification vibration option, tap on Notification sound instead, followed by Notification vibration pattern. Choose Silent from the list. Now, your phone will only vibrate for calls and not for notifications.

Bonus: Turn off Vibration for WhatsApp Messages on Android Phones

To disable vibration for WhatsApp personal or group messages, you can follow the same steps as mentioned in Method 2 above. However, if that doesn’t help, WhatsApp offers a native setting to turn off vibration for messages:

  1. Open WhatsApp on your Android phone.
  2. Tap on the three-dot icon and go to Settings.
  3. Tap on Notifications and select the Vibrate option under Messages.
  4. Choose Off. This will disable vibration for messages from personal chats.
  5. Similarly, if you want to turn off vibration from group messages, tap on Vibrate under Groups and choose Off.

By following these steps, you can effectively silence notifications on your Android phone and manage vibration settings according to your preferences.

Remember, it’s essential to find the right balance between staying informed and avoiding distractions.
