How to mute or unmute group notifications
Web and Desktop
You can mute group chat notifications for a specified period of time. You'll still receive messages sent to the group, but won’t be notified.
Mute group notifications
- Open a group chat.
- Click Menu|> Mute notifications.
- Select a duration:
- 8 Hours
- 1 Week
- Click Mute.
To turn notifications back on, open the muted chat, then click Menu
> Unmute notifications.
Note: If you mute a group chat on your phone, it'll also be muted on WhatsApp Web and Desktop. All other notification settings are independent of your phone and computer and don't affect one another.
