WhatsApp Tips and Tricks: How to Mute Notification Notifications on WhatsApp


WhatsApp has been giving the option to mute notifications in individual chats and group messages forever since October last year. But this option isn’t useful when you’re mentioned by someone in that group for which you’ve already muted that group’s notification. In such a situation, notifications keep coming to you. This isn’t technically a bug, but sometimes it can bother you. Especially when many members start replying to one of your old messages.
However, you can also mute such notifications in a manner suggested by WABetaInfo.

How to mute notification notifications on WhatsApp

For such a message, you can mute the notification on both Android and iOS platforms. It also works for WhatsApp Web or the desktop client. This requires you to mute the notification for that member of that group you mention while replying to one of your old posts.

So to mute notifications for that particular person, you need to go to their WhatsApp profile. Then tap his name. Then find the option Mute notifications. It may ask like Mute for Android and Mute for iOS. To mute notifications here, you can choose to mute for 8 hours, a week, or forever.

This is useful if you don’t want to leave a group. But at the same time, when someone mentions you, you also want to mute their notification.
According to a report from WABetaInfo, this workaround will work even if WhatsApp implements multi-device support. Then it can essentially sync rules across devices.
