Most keyboard apps have subtle vibration—also known as “haptic feedback”—to help make typing on a touchscreen feel more tactile. If you’d rather not feel your Android phone buzz with every tap, this can be turned off.
As with many things in the Android world, there are tons of different keyboard apps at your disposal. We’ll be showing you how to turn off the vibration for two of the most common keyboard apps—Google’s Gboard and the default Samsung Keyboard.
Turn Off Keyboard Vibration for Gboard
First, enter a text box to bring up the Gboard keyboard. From there, press the gear icon to open the app’s Settings.
Next, go to “Preferences.”
Scroll down to the “Key Press” section and turn off “Haptic Feedback on Keypress.”
Turn Off Keyboard Vibration for Samsung Keyboard
First, swipe down once from the top of your Samsung Galaxy device’s screen and tap the gear icon.
Next, go to “General Management.”
Select “Samsung Keyboard Settings.”
Scroll down to “Swipe, Touch, and Feedback.”
Select “Touch Feedback.”
Toggle off “Vibration.”
You’re all set! Your keyboard will no longer vibrate with every keypress. This is one of the great things about software keyboards. You get a lot more customization options than you would with a physical keyboard. Make sure it’s exactly how you want it to be.
