  • Then go to option Sound and vibration
  • Look for the option Do not disturb and activate it

By the notification panel

  • Swipe down from the top of the screen
  • Select the bell icon to switch to silent mode

By applying any of these steps all sounds from the mobile will be silenced including calls, notifications and the WhatsApp camera. Although you should know that taking photos without any sound is not allowed by some manufacturers, to avoid any type of harassment, so the above options will not work for you. However, if this is not your case, and what you want is not to disturb others, you can try other methods.

Finally, if you have not been able to silence your mobile with the first method, and the second is very complicated for you, there is one last option. You can try using an app like Tasker.
