Facebook app is making NOISE when scrolling - what to do?

If you have recently updated the Facebook app and noticed an annoying noise when scrolling, you're not alone. Many users have reported this strange update, but fortunately, there is a solution. According to research on Reddit, the issue can be resolved by turning off in-app sounds. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Tap on the bottom right of your Facebook app to open the menu.
  2. Scroll down and tap on "Settings and Privacy".
  3. From there, select "Settings".
  4. Scroll down to find "Preferences" and tap on it.
  5. Next, tap on "Media".
  6. Finally, toggle the switch next to "In-App Sound" to turn it off.

Following these steps should resolve the scrolling noise problem based on Reddit users' feedback. To see the solution in action within the Facebook app, just tap on your profile in the bottom right corner, go to "Settings", then "Privacy", and proceed to "Settings" again. From there, navigate to "Media" and disable the in-app sound feature. This will eliminate the annoying scroll sound.

Alternatively, you can also put your phone into silent mode by toggling the switch located on the top left side of your iPhone (depending on the model). However, keep in mind that this will silence all apps and calls on your device. If you only want to remove the in-app sound feature from the Facebook app while still being able to watch videos and listen to audio, the above method is more suitable.

It's unclear why Facebook added this additional scrolling sound feature, as it doesn't seem to be a bug. Being a major company, it's unlikely that they overlooked such an issue during the app's update. Speculations suggest that there may be requirements from regulatory bodies, such as the European Union or the United States, or it could be a design choice. Perhaps Facebook believes users need to hear this sound for specific purposes. Similar features are present in apps like Twitter, where a sound is played to indicate a refreshed feed. However, many users find such features unnecessary and prefer their apps to be in silent mode.

Unfortunately, there is currently no option to disable the specific scrolling sound while keeping other in-app sounds intact.
