How to mute WhatsApp group chats

mute icon

Looking for a bit of down-time this weekend or wanting to avoid the debate on the school WhatsApp group about playground politics but don’t want to leave the group in case there’s a useful reminder?

Did you know you can mute a WhatsApp group for 8 hours, 1 week or even a year?

Tap on the group’s name
Select Mute (the 4th option down)
Choose your time period

You’ll still get the little red number on your WhatsApp icon showing you the number of new messages and you’ll be able to read the messages if you want to, but you will be spared the constant pinging when it all gets a bit much!
