Whatsapp New Update Let You Mute Chats Forever

Whatsapp latest update for beta users let you mute personal or group chat forever. This was the most awaited feature that should have been from the beginning. Whatsapp closest rival Telegram had this feature from the very beginning. WhatsApp took to Twitter to announce the introduction of this feature for both Android and iOS users. The messaging platform has also confirmed that this new feature will also be available on WhatsApp for the Web version.

The feature is currently available to beta users only. But going by history, we can expect the feature to roll out for everyone in the coming weeks. WhatsApp‘s mute function has been a boon for many who’ve wanted to keep their notifications at bay. However, the maximum duration allowed for silencing these chats was maximum to one year.

Whatsapp now has removed this one year feature with forever mute. The new mute forever feature will be rolled out via an OTA update. If you haven’t updated it yet, update through Google playstore.

In case you don’t know how to mute a chat, here’s a quick guide:

  • Open WhatsApp on your phone.
  • Go to the chat you want to mute, and tap on the group or contact name.
  • Tap on the Mute option and select Always (or other options).

In the near future, this update will be rolled out to the WhatsApp web versions also.

In the days to come, WhatsApp is expected to add voice and video calling features to the WhatsApp Web version. With this, the messaging platform will likely aim to compete with other video calling platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and more. Just a few months ago WhatsApp extended the voice and video call participant to eight from four members.
