Facebook has been a hugely popular social site since its launch in 2004. People were charmed by its interface and still continue to be so. From time to time, Facebook keeps on updating the app to remain at pace with the fast changing interest of users. The new add-ons may or may not be liked by users depending on individual interest.

Facebook has added an in-app sound effect in its newest version. By default, the in-app sound is enabled and makes a bit teasing sound whenever you like or comment a post or even refresh news feed. If you are not a big fan of little popping or squishing sound, then you may get annoyed by this little sound effect. Of course, you can mute the speaker of your iPhone but what if you want to listen to music and hence don't wish other sounds to become a distraction? Is there any way of muting it on iPhone? Head over to check out how you can get rid of it.

    Thank you, thank you for your explanation on how to turn off in-app sound for Messenger! The first time I heard it I wondered what in the world it was. But my poor little dog hit the ceiling and took off running! And every time after, she went bonkers…must be like a dog whistle or something. Too bad they didn’t give us a choice to change it to a different sound. I like the notification…but not if it puts my dog in cardiac arrest!
