You can change your notification settings for all calls and messages in WhatsApp Settings. Learn how to mute individual or group chat notifications in this article.
Note: If you disable or silence WhatsApp notifications from your device settings, updates made to notification settings in WhatsApp won’t override them. However, if you enable custom notifications for a chat in WhatsApp, a new notification category will be added in your device settings, with notifications enabled for that custom setting.
You can mute individual or group chat notifications for a specified period of time. You'll still receive messages sent to the individual or group chat, but your phone won't vibrate or make a sound when they're received.

Mute notifications

  1. Select an individual or group chat.
  2. Press Options > Mute.
  3. Select the length of time you'd like to mute notifications for.
  4. Press OK.
Alternatively, open the individual or group chat. Press Options > View contact or Group info > Mute notifications. Select the length of time you'd like to mute notifications, then press OK.
