WhatsApp wants to change the muting of chats a bit, the planned innovation appears too early and already reveals everything.
For WhatsApp Messenger, the next small but practical improvement in chat handling is coming. In the future, we will not only be able to mute chats for a limited time, but also forever. So far there are three options for this. If you set your chat notifications to “Mute” for eight hours, a week, or a year, the last of these three options should be overridden.
A new option to mute
As you can report once again on WABetainfo, chats can also be muted forever in the future. So you don’t have to update the squelch every year for groups with a high volume of messages. It is not yet clear when the new feature will be available to all users. Sure, but soon, it won’t be that important.
How to mute chats on WhatsApp
Open the corresponding chat> three-dot menu> mute notifications> select duration. A chat that has been muted is no longer noticeable for incoming messages. In the overview of your chats, silent chats are marked accordingly with a small icon.
