WhatsApp mute chats forever  (WhatsApp)

WhatsApp has finally rolled out a new feature it had been testing for months. WhatsApp users can now mute chats forever. The new feature is available on WhatsApp’s Android and iOS apps, and the web version as well.

WhatsApp had been testing this mute forever option for a few months now with WABetaInfo consistently reporting on this feature. The new mute option essentially replaces the one year option with ‘always’, and it’s not a new option. The other two time intervals to mute chats are 8 hours and 1 week. WhatsApp chats muted for one year are unmuted automatically after the deadline is over.

This feature may not seem like a big or useful one to many users. But for those who have chats they wish to mute forever, this will be of help. For those unaware, you can mute chats by long pressing on the chat and selecting the option ‘mute’, and choosing the time duration. The new feature is already available on the Android and iOS apps of WhatsApp, and on its web version as well.

Another feature that’s more requested by WhatsApp users is ‘Vacation Mode’. This feature was reportedly scraped but it recently appeared again, and is expected to roll out soon. Vacation Mode on WhatsApp keeps archived chats permanently hidden. At present, archived chats show up on top whenever a new message is sent. But with Vacation Mode, archived chats will remain hidden and not pop up on top. This feature makes more sense for archived chats to actually work like they’re supposed to.
