There is nothing more annoying on the Internet than websites that automatically start playing various kinds of sounds. I bet everyone many times just wanted to mute them.

Up till now you had to install add-ons or enable experimental features to be able to do it in Chrome. Since Chrome 64 option which allows you to turn off the sound on web pages is finally available to the public.

Here are 4 ways to disable sounds on sites using Chrome browser. From the simplest one that requires only two clicks, to some more advanced.

  1. Right Click on a Tab

  2. Global Sound Settings

  3. Quick Site Setting

  4. Full Site Setting

Solution 1 – Right click on tab

This option does not allow to mute one tab. When you mute site in one tab – all tabs having this site opened will be muted!
