You can now mute a WhatsApp chat forever

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 one year.

So, if you were part of a pesky group of relatives that you couldn’t really leave, you had to perform the muting ritual once a year. Now, the chat has rolled out an option to mute a conversation FOREVER. That’s right.

 

The company has replaced the 1-year muting option with Always, and that’s a smart thing to do. If you’re muting a chat for a year, it’s more likely that you would want to mute it till the end of the time.

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).
