You can now mute chats on WhatsApp forever

Apps, WhatsApp

Ever found yourself inside a group which you cannot leave but cannot tolerate the notifications from as well? The only option you had earlier was to mute it for a year. WhatsApp just made it more convenient for you to mute a chat forever.

To mute a chat on WhatsApp for Android, long press on the chat you want to mute and tap on “Mute Notifications” and select “Always”. To do the same on iPhone, slide the chat to the left and select Mute and then select “Always”.

WhatsApp is also adding other features like the ability to open the app using Face Unlock and joining a missed group call.
