You may be a member of WhatsApp groups from which you are constantly receiving messages, or you may have contacts in WhatsApp who are constantly sending you entertaining messages. This can be distracting and annoying. You can easily mute the notification of a specific contact or group on WhatsApp.

After muting a specific contact or group on WhatsApp, that contact or group will remain in your chat list and you will receive their messages and be able to chat with them at any time, but will no longer be notified of the new messages they send you; This means that you will not see any notifications for new messages from them on your phone. Of course, you can re-enable notifications for that particular contact or group whenever you want. It is also worth noting that members of the group or contacts who have been muted will never realize that they have been muted by you.
