This is a funny thing when you are anxious about your S8 no speak sound. When you found your Samsung Galaxy S8 audio not working, the first step you need check your volume case. You can check this by using the drop-down menu using your fingers to slide down the screen from the top. Press the volume key and when the volume slider appears on-screen, tap on the small down arrow at the end of the slider to see all the volume controls for Media, Ringtone, Notifications and System. Go ahead and turn all the sound settings up, turn it to Loud Mode.

2. The headphone jack may be blocked

If the step 1 can’t solve this question, the headphone jack may be blocked, you can clean your headphone jack and speaker grill to make sure there is no lint, dust and dirt which can prevent you from getting any sound. Any dust, dirt or grime blocking the charging port can result in a poor connection which might eventually lead to sound and charging issues.

5. Software update

Check to ensure that you have the latest software update on your Galaxy smartphone. You can do this by following the directions below;

Settings > About device > Software update > Check for updates.

If there is a new update, download it. Different carriers release updates at different times.

6. Factory reset

If all else fails backup your phone and do a reset. Go to settings, General management, Reset and then factory data reset. Factory reset is the last option that can resolve all kind of issue including the S8 sound problems. So head towards Settings > Backup & reset> Factory data reset > Erase all data. Wait for few seconds as this will take a few minutes to erase everything from the device after which you are required to set up your Galaxy S8 from scratch.

7. Turn on ‘Prevent USB audio routing’

Enable the developer option in your Galaxy S8 by going to Settings> About device and tap the build number seven times. When the developer option is enabled, head to Developer option and scroll down to get the Media option. There you will notice an option ‘Prevent USB audio routing’. Turn this option on by toggling the switch. This method has worked for many. So, you too can try this out if it becomes helpful for you to solve the audio issue.

8. Boot in safe mode

Turn off the device first Next, press Power button for few seconds till you notice Samsung logo on the screen. Release the power key then and hold down the Volume down button till the phone completes restarting and safe mode appears at the bottom left corner of the screen.

If the audio issue is not noticed in safe mode then a third party app is the main culprit. Uninstall third-party apps on by one until the problem is solved. Our suggestion is to start with the apps you installed recently, right before the issue occurred.

So, these are the methods to resolve the Samsung Galaxy S8 audio issues. You can try them out, but if nothing works, the possible situation is that your speaker is broken in which case you will need to have it changed or replaced. You need to read the next solution:
