You can get the sound mode status on IOS & Android! On Android you can also manage the device's sound mode.


  1. Detect device's current sound mode (both IOS & Android)
  2. Able to toggle between Normal, Silent & Vibrate mode (only Android)
  3. Grant Do No Disturb permissions for devices above platform version Android 6.0 (API 23) (only Android)

Android Usage

Add sound_mode as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file

Add the following permission to AndroidManifest.xml for the app to appear in the 'Do Not Disturb Access' list

<manifest ... >
    <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_NOTIFICATION_POLICY"/>
    <application ... >


To get the device's current sound mode:

String ringerStatus = await SoundMode.ringerModeStatus;

To change the device's sound mode:

import 'package:sound_mode/utils/ringer_mode_statuses.dart';

// Handle Platform Exceptions for devices running above Android 6.0 
try {
  await SoundMode.setSoundMode(RingerModeStatus.silent);
} on PlatformException {
  print('Please enable permissions required');

For Android 6.0 and above

For devices with Android 6.0 and above, it is required for the user to grant Do No Disturb Access to set their device's sound mode.

To check if the user has granted the permissions and prompt for approval

import 'package:sound_mode/permission_handler.dart';

bool isGranted = await PermissionHandler.permissionsGranted;

if (!isGranted) {
  // Opens the Do Not Disturb Access settings to grant the access
  await PermissionHandler.openDoNotDisturbSetting();

iOS Usage

WARNING: This only works on real IOS devices. Not in the simulator.

Currently, it is possible to get the device's ringer mode status. For iOS, the following lines of code can be added to use it in flutter.


RingerModeStatus ringerStatus = RingerModeStatus.unknown;

// The one second delay is needed to get accurate results on IOS...
Future.delayed(const Duration(seconds: 1), () async {
  try {
    ringerStatus = await SoundMode.ringerModeStatus;
  } catch (err) {
    ringerStatus = RingerModeStatus.unknown;

List of RingerModeStatus statuses
