The WhatsApp has rolled out the feature to mute a chat ‘forever’ be it from family groups, office groups, etc.
The never-ending pings after random forwarded messages, or text messages from offices that you don’t want to see beyond office time keep buzzing your phone which gives rise to the need of mute button. The feature has been updated and we can finally mute the chats FOREVER.
“You can now mute a chat forever,” WhatsApp announced in a tweet. The messaging app did have mute option earlier, but with a time frame of 8 hours, one week and a year.
