Twitter has a new chirp sound effect whenever you refresh the timeline, if you don't like it, you can turn it off completely on iPhone, iPad and Android.
You Can Turn off the New Chirp Sound Effect in Twitter for iPhone, iPad and Android in a Few Easy Steps
Over time, Twitter has improved itself in different ways. We've seen several redesigns, new logos and whatnot. But, the latest one is something which is apparently not sitting well with some users out there - the new chirp sound effect.
Launch the Twitter app and let the timeline refresh, or simply pull to refresh it, and you'll hear a sound effect which you've never heard before. Make sure your iPhone, iPad or Android device isn't in silent mode in order to hear it. That sound is confirmation that your timeline has refreshed - a nice little touch.
Sadly, not everyone likes the new sound effect, and if you're reading this and fully agree with that, then you will be pleased to learn that you can disable the sound effect. In case you are wondering - no, you can't bring back the old sound effect, you can only mute the current one.
Step 1. Launch the Twitter app.
Step 2. Tap on your display image on the top left hand corner to reveal more options.
Step 3. Tap on 'Settings and Privacy.'
Step 4. Tap on 'Accessibility, display and languages.'
Step 5. Tap on 'Display and sound.'
Step 6. Tap to turn off 'Sound effects' as shown in the screenshot below.
From now on, whenever you refresh Twitter, you won't hear the new chirp sound. With the sound effects option turned off, the app won't make any sort of sound at all. But, do keep in mind that regular notification sounds will be available on a system level. This change only removes the in-app sound effects.
Although many would throw out an opinion that letting the user customize the sound effect would have been a nice touch, but does it really matter? It really doesn't. It's just a negligible feature in an app that adds no real value at all.
In fact, I didn't even realize there was a nice sound effect until a few days had passed away. My iPhone is always on silent mode therefore I never got the chance to hear it the moment it was rolled out.
