How to Stop the Keyboard Vibration (Android)

  1. Go to the “Settings” app;
  2. Find the “System” and “Language and keyboard settings” option;
  3. In “Languages and Inputs”, you will see your keyboards;
  4. In GBoard, for example, touch “Preferences”:
  5. Uncheck “Vibration when touching the key”.

If it does not appear, touch “Vibration Intensity” when you press keys and move the bar to zero to adjust. The feature will be disabled and your phone will stop vibrating.

It is possible that on some older devices, the setting is in Setup> System> Sound> Sound and Vibration. If you can not find it, search for “vibrate” in the Android Settings app and jump right to the features to make your adjustment.


If you have the keyboard in use, you can change the settings there. Touch and hold the “,” (comma) key for two seconds and choose the gear icon (Settings) to drop on the settings screen without referring to the menu as explained.
