An issue that many Android users have is the default system sounds on their devices. In order to let the user know that the charger is connected by default, Android makes a bell-like sound. I find this bell sound very obnoxious when my charger has a somewhat loose connection, therefore I’ve decided to disable it. In this post, we will show you how to change the charging sound on Android.
There are numerous options for customizing Android. Android is a great choice if you’re a computer programmer who likes to fiddle around with code. Android has surpassed iOS as the most widely used mobile operating system, with over two billion users. It was introduced on September 11, 2020, although not many smartphones are currently running Android 11. Android is popular because it allows for a wide range of customisation options. As a result, developing apps and tools for the android ecosystem is very simple compared to developing for other mobile systems. With all of these features intact, Android is clearly the most popular mobile operating system on the market.
1. Change the Charging Sound on a Rooted Android Device
System UI sound: Android makes a noise when you charge your phone or tablet. This means Android doesn’t let you change it right away. There are also notifications, the sound when your phone is turned on or off, and the sound when your battery is low. To change any of these sounds on your device, you need to go to the system sound files and change the sound files for these sounds.
In the event that you don’t know what ‘android rooting’ is, you should think about following these steps more. Then, this might not work on every device and on every version of Android, either. It’s fine if you want to give it a go. Even though your phone must be rooted to make this work.
What you’ll need:
- A sound clip that you want to change to OGG format
- A file manager that has access to the root of the files.
- A rooted Android device.
If all of these things are in order, then you should be fine.
1. Open your root file manager and go to the SYSTEM folder.
2. Now navigate to MEDIA>AUDIO>UI
3. Here, you can find all of the audio files for your system.
4. You need to find the audio file that talks about charging. It should be named something as charging, Dock, and more.
5. Choose that file and change the name so you can replace the original file later, if you want to. Click on the file and change the name.
6. Copy the audio file you want to change to a new place in the directory.
7. Change the name of the audio file back to what it was before (eg: charging.ogg)
It’s time to plug the phone into the charger so you can check to see if the sound of it charging has changed.
Notice that you can change not only the sound of your Android charging but also the sound of other system sounds with this method. You just have to change the sound files with the clips you want. It’s very simple. But make sure that these sound clips are in OGG format and that they aren’t more than a few seconds long, as well.
Now, if you don’t know anything about rooting and other things that are talked about here, please read on. Rooting is a whole different subject that we don’t want to talk about in this article, but we will give you some information about rooting and root access so you can learn more.
