How to Disable and Enable Notification Sounds in macOS Ventura

Turning off notifications can be useful for those that may find themselves distracted by certain apps constantly alerting them. Of course, there are some applications that you never need to hear from, so today we’re taking a look at how to silence notifications on your Mac within macOS Ventura.

While muting your audio entirely can be a great way to escape from notifications, users may want to continue hearing sounds from certain apps (Via iMore).

For turning off notification sounds, follow these steps.

    • Head to the  menu at the top-right corner.
    • Choose System Settings


  • Click Notifications


  • Choose which app you would like to silence notifications
  • Turn off Play sound for notification


While this feature is especially helpful for those looking for complete control over the notifications, it can be an issue for those looking to silence notifications for all of their apps.

Of course, if users are still on macOS Monterey for whatever reason, TMO has you covered on how to mute notifications within that OS as well.

For those that like ultimate control over every little detail, this can be a great way to tweak your settings for certain apps. Of course, since this only disables notification sounds, apps will still make the other sounds unless otherwise muted. Either way, this is a nice tip for those looking for a bit of quiet from their Mac.
