A new update has come on WhatsApp and a new feature has also brought a new update for you. On both Android and iOS, users have got the option to mute notifications of groups or chats forever.
In almost every user’s WhatsApp, there are many groups, which are compulsory to be members. These can range from family groups to some official groups whose messages are of no use to you. Such groups can now be muted forever and unnecessary notifications of messages coming in them will not bother you anymore.
The messaging platform WhatsApp told about the ‘Always Mute’ option being received in groups from their Twitter account. If you go to the Mute Notifications settings of a WhatsApp group, then here you will see the third option Always with 1 Week and 8 hours. Until now, there was a 1 Year option instead of Always, meaning that you could mute a group by changing the settings for at most 1 year. Now once the group is muted it will never disturb its notifications.
WhatsApp has been testing this feature in its beta version for a long time and now it has been rolled out to all users on both Android and iOS apps. If you do not see the option of Always in Mute Notifications settings, then immediately you need to update the app by going to the App Store or Google Play Store.
