        Guys, here is the solution.

        1. Install Root Explorer.
        2. Locate to /system/media/audio/ui, remount to enable write/modify.
        3. Find camera_click.ogg, long press and choose to set the authority of this file to 000, which set the file to non-accessible, non-excuetable by all users.
        4. Done.

        If the above could not solve you problem, you may need to root your device or restart you phone.

        There is a "Shutter Sound" option on my version of Office Lens (16.0.9001.2117 available in Google Play Store 29 Jan 2018). in the 3 ellipses menu in top right corner.

        There is a clumsy workaround on my Android S6: Mute system sounds.

        It is called Office Lense, but with the shutter sound it is useless in the office since it disturbed everyone.

        Two year old thread, issue crucial, still not fixed. Hello Microsoft?

        Sony phone does not /v the shutter noise as long as off the sound volume. I try but the sound cannot move to mute or rather 0.

        I can't use this app at work due to the shutter sound. Apps should always respect the system volume setting IMO.

        The sound itself is not the problem. But I cannot mute it. Even if everything is set to silent, this app makes this camera sound. Unusable in class etc.

        Need a way to turn off the shutter sound. Very disturbing during quiet business meetings.
