How to Turn On or Off Flash on Android Camera

In this post, we’ll see how to turn on or off the flash on Android camera. In this instance, I’m using Android Pie. 

Also, note that you need to apply the below steps for both the front and rear camera separately. 

With that said, let’s get started.

To turn off, follow the below steps (remember that turning off flash will disable flash in the Camera app):

  1. Open “Camera” app.
  2. Hit the “Lightning bolt” icon at the top.
  3. Hit “Off.”

To turn on, follow the below steps (remember that turning on flash will make the Camera app to use flash every time you take a photo):

  1. Open “Camera” app.
  2. Hit the “Lightning bolt” icon at the top.
  3. Hit “On.”

Note: “Flash auto” is the default option. If you choose this option, then the Camera app will use flash when it decides the flash is required.
