If you are one of those who make intensive use of WhatsApp, it is likely that at some point you feel saturated by the large number of notifications received. A good way to avoid this is to mute the notifications you receive on your cell phone. In this way, notifications will still arrive, but without sound.

How to mute a conversation and a contact

The process to mute a conversation and a contact in WhatsApp is exactly the same. By removing the sound of notifications in a chat, you are actually muting the contact with whom you are having the conversation.

If you want to mute a contact, first, open a conversation with your contact. Then tap on the three dots button to open the context menu.

By configuring the conversation notifications in this way, the contact will have been silenced. However, you will continue to receive notifications on your phone when there are new messages.

How to mute a group

Muting a group is very simple. In fact, it is a similar process to the one described above. Open the group menu by tapping on the three vertical dots.
