WhatsApp new feature: Facebook-owned messaging platform WhatsApp has launched a new feature, in which chat can be muted forever. That is, if you are having trouble with a person or group chat, then you do not even have to block it. You can mute it forever. This new feature is available for both Android and iOS users. This new feature has also been added to the web version of the platform.
First one year could mute
The feature was in testing for several months. The feature of muting chat is not completely new. It has only been updated. Earlier, users had the option to mute chat for a period of eight hours, one week or one year. Now ‘Always’ has replaced the option of muting for S years. This means that where the chat muted for the first one year was automatically unmuted again after the end of the chat period. At the same time, now when users mute the chat using the ‘Always’ option, it will never be unmuted.
This update is not huge, but for those people who are having trouble with too much chat, whose notifications they do not want, this notification can be very useful for those users.
How to mute chat forever?
Muting chat on WhatsApp is very easy. For this, users have to long-press on the chat they want to mute. For Android users, once the chat is selected, they will see a mute icon at the top of the screen. After long presses for iOS users, a list menu will be found at the bottom of the chat and a mute option will appear.
