WhatsApp announces changes to ‘Mute’ option
WhatsApp has announced the rollout of a new feature that will allow users to mute chats forever. The new WhatsApp feature was being tested since the past few months on the iOS and Android beta app.
WhatsApp has been allowing users to mute chats for many years. Prior to the latest WhatsApp update, users could mute an individual or a group chat for eight hours, a week, or a year. The new WhatsApp update for Android and iOS will allow users to mute a chat forever.
WhatsApp has replaced the “1-year” option with “Always”. The feature was a part of the WhatsApp beta test for months on the Android and iOS apps. The mute forever feature may not look like a big update but will surely be helpful for the ones who do not want to receive notifications from a particular chat. (MC)
