WhatsApp has introduced many smart features for users in its latest update. To give a tough competition to its rival apps, WhatsApp has finally launched some of the most useful features in this update.
Muting individual or specific chats was a long pending requirement in this app, though it has already launched an update on how to mute group notifications/alerts on WhatsApp.
But in its latest updates, WhatsApp has also covered muting specific WhatsApp chats on iPhone; now you can mute chats from an individual contact in this app.
Many users have been asking for such a solution wherein they can mute some of their contacts, who continuously send chats or forwarded messages. This can be annoying if one has to receive more than 50 chats or forwarded messages giving lessons on how to live a better life. Not anymore. Now you can mute such chats on your WhatsApp.
How to Mute Specific WhatsApp Chats on iPhone
Step #1. Swipe gently from right to left; Two options will appear: More and Archive.
Step #2. Tap on More.
Step #4. A menu will swipe up with five options: Mute, Contact Info, Email Chat, Clear Chat and Delete Chat → Tap on Mute.
Step #5. Again a menu will swipe up with three options: 8 hours, 1 week and 1 year.
You can choose any of the three options and the chat will be muted accordingly. Once you mute any specific chat, an icon of a crossed-out speaker will appear next to the chat. After the stipulated time, the chat will be unmuted automatically. Or you can unmute the muted chats by following the same method. If any message comes on this muted chat, you won’t get any notification tone or vibration; however, you can always read the messages later.
