How to Mute Whatsapp Chat Forever

Mute Whatsapp Chat


WhatsApp has just announced via  Twitter that you can silence notifications for (group) conversations forever. Previously, you could silence the notifications in three ways:

  • for 8 hours,
  • for one week, and
  • for one year.

This function has been available for a while in the WhatsApp beta version and has been included in the standard WhatsApp version.

That means that from now on, you can mute the notifications of a conversation forever. For example, in a WhatsApp group, you are always disturbed by all kinds of (useful and less useful) messages. In the meantime, you can open a group to skim all messages. The 1-year option has also disappeared.
