Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has rolled out a feature to all its users allowing them to mute both individual and group chats forever.
Previously, WhatsApp offered three options under the ‘Mute’ tab, 8 hours, 1 Week and 1 Year. The app has now replaced the ‘1 Year’ with the ‘Always’ option.
In order to mute a chat forever, open the chat, tap on the menu option on the top right and select Mute notifications. You will see the three options there with the last one being ‘Always’. Select it and press Ok.
You can also select Show notifications if you want to just see notifications without an alert. Once muted, you can will see the Unmute notifications option in the chat settings instead of the Mute notifications option.
This new feature is present on both iOS and Android devices, as well as on WhatsApp web.
