Recently many people have reported that they can’t hear sound on some videos on Reddit. In other words, there is no sound on Reddit. So why does this problem exist?

In this short article, I will answer this question and show you how to fix this problem. So let’s dive right in.

Why does Reddit have no sound?

There are some reasons that this may happen. For example, the sound of the video may be removed before it was uploaded on Reddit. Or there may be some adult content in the video.

If this is the case, then you need to know that Reddit automatically mutes such content. So if Reddit recognizes that a video is not proper, it’ll automatically mute that video. Even if the original video has a sound, it’ll be affected and turn into a soundless video.

How to fix this problem?

It is so simple to turn the sound on. All you need to do is navigate to the video and tap the speaker icon and turn on the sound. However in many cases that may not work. So if that doesn’t help you to get the sound, there are still two methods you can try to turn on the sound.

(Method 1) Download Apollo for Reddit (iPhone)

  • Download the Apollo for Reddit from the App Store.
  • After you’ve downloaded the app, go ahead and open it.

  • Go to the video that you couldn’t hear its sound and tap on the speaker icon.
