What does WhatsApp mute

Mute WhatsApp - this is how it works

It is all too easy for each of us to be distracted from work or a meeting, the mobile phone constantly indicates the arrival of a new message. Here we show you how you can mute notifications from WhatsApp so that you can fully concentrate on your actual task.

Mute individual and group chats

Group chats in particular can be annoying, especially when a topic is being discussed at length or when a holiday is coming up and WhatsApp is overheating with the news. If you don't feel like the fifth “Merry Christmas” message or the topic just discussed, you can simply mute the notification for a message within the group.
