A new feature is being introduced on WhatsApp that will allow you to mute a chat forever. This was shared on the company’s twitter handle saying that it is adding a new option known as ‘Always‘ to chat settings. The feature has been on its beta version and now but the company is rolling it out to the stable version.
Before now, the mute Settings consist of three options that allows you to mute a chat for 8 Hours, 1 Week, or 1 year. With the new update, the 1 year option has now been changed to ‘Always’, which will let you mute a chat forever. WhatsApp is rolling out this option to all platforms, including iOS, Android as well as on WhatsApp web.
