Do you miss the satisfying clickety-clack of a keyboard when typing on your Android device? Well, you’re in luck!

In this tutorial, we will show you how to turn on the keyboard sound on your Android phone or tablet. So, let’s dive right in!

Step 1: Open the Settings

To get started, unlock your Android device and navigate to the Settings app. You can usually find it in your app drawer or by swiping down from the top of your screen and tapping on the gear icon.

Step 2: Find Language & Input Settings

Once you’re in the Settings, scroll down until you find an option called “Language & Input”. Tap on it to access the language and input settings for your device.


The exact location of this option may vary depending on your Android version or device manufacturer. If you can’t find it, try using the search feature within the Settings app to locate it quickly.

Step 3: Select Virtual Keyboard

In the “Language & Input” settings, look for an option called “Virtual Keyboard”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Choose Your Keyboard App

You should now see a list of installed keyboard apps on your Android device. Select the keyboard app that you are currently using or intend to use. For example, if you are using Gboard (the default Google Keyboard), tap on “Gboard”.


The name and options available may vary depending on which keyboard app you have installed on your device. However, the general process remains the same.

Step 5: Access Keyboard Settings

After selecting your preferred keyboard app, you will be taken to its settings page. Look for an option that says “Preferences” or “Sound & Vibration”. Tap on it to access the sound settings for your keyboard.

Step 6: Enable Keyboard Sound

In the sound settings, you should find a toggle switch labeled “Sound on Keypress” or something similar. Enable this option by tapping on the switch to turn it on.


The exact wording and location of this option may vary depending on your keyboard app. Some apps may offer additional customization options like adjusting the volume or choosing a specific sound for keypresses.

Step 7: Test Your Keyboard Sound

Now that you have enabled the keyboard sound, go ahead and open any app that requires text input. Start typing, and you should hear a satisfying click or tick sound with each keystroke!


If you don’t hear any sound, make sure your device’s volume is turned up and not muted. You may also want to check if there are any additional sound settings within your keyboard app that need to be adjusted.

Congratulations! You have successfully turned on the keyboard sound on your Android device. Enjoy the nostalgic feeling of typing on a physical keyboard while using your virtual one!

  • Tips:
    • If you find the keyboard sounds too loud or distracting, you can always come back to these settings and disable them by following the same steps.
    • Experiment with different keyboard apps available on the Google Play Store to find the one that suits your typing style and preferences the best.
