WhatsApp users can finally mute groups or a personal chat forever. Till now, you were able to mute someone for 8 hours, one day or one year. But the platform has now added a new option called the Mute Always. The feature is currently available to beta users of the messaging app. But going by history, we expect the feature to roll out for everyone in the coming weeks.

As highlighted by reliable tipster WAbetainfo, the feature is available through beta version 2.20.201.10 on Android. Mute option on WhatsApp is one of the most popular feature used by millions of users. It allows them to block notifications from a particular contact or group. This way, they won’t be alerted about messages from the muted contact or group. And with Always Mute option, you can manually make sure that contact or group is on mute forever.

WhatsApp assures complete privacy

In other news, WhatsApp recently issued its statements following a string of accusations questioning the app’s privacy. The accusations came after the investigation leading up to the death of the popular Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput, a few personal WhatsApp chats of the accused were leaked. “WhatsApp protects your messages with end-to-end encryption so that only you and the person you’re communicating with can read what is sent, and nobody in between can access it, not even WhatsApp,” said the app.
