WhatsApp trick: The instant messaging platform WhatsApp has recently rolled out a new feature that allows users to mute groups or a personal chat forever. Till now, you were able to mute someone for 8 hours, one day or one year. But the platform has now added a new option called the Mute Always. The new feature is available on WhatsApp’s Android and iOS apps, and the web version as well.
The new mute option essentially replaces the one year option with ‘always’. The other two options remain 8 hours and 1 week. WhatsApp chats muted for one year are unmuted automatically after the deadline is over.
How to mute WhatsApp chats forever?
Open WhatsApp on your device.
On the home screen, open an individual or group chat (Android).
If you are using iPhone, open the contact info by tapping on the name of the contact.
Tap Options (three dots).
From the given options, tap Mute notification.
You will be shown three options:
Select Always to mute WhatsApp chat forever and tap Ok.
This will ensure that you don’t get notifications from that person. To unmute the group notifications you have to follow the same process, hover over the group in your chats list, next click on the options (three dots), from the drop-down menu tap on Unmute notification.
Another feature that can soon make its way to the platform is ‘Vacation Mode’. The feature was reportedly scraped but recently appeared, and is expected to roll out soon. Vacation Mode on WhatsApp keeps archived chats permanently hidden. At present, archived chats show up on top whenever a new message is sent. But with Vacation Mode, archived chats will remain hidden and not pop up on top. This feature makes more sense for archived chats to actually work like they’re supposed to.
