You can mute a WhatsApp group for a while. You will still receive the messages and notifications, but without the vibration and notification sounds. Optionally, you can also completely stop receiving the notifications.

To mute a WhatsApp group:
whatsapp mute

  • Open Whatsapp
  • In the chat list, long press the group that you want to mute.
  • Tap the mute button on top-right.
  • Select the duration for which the group has to be muted. You will still receive message notifications but without sound and vibration.
  • If you want to stop receiving notifications, uncheck the box 'Show notifications'
  • Press OK.
  • Note: Though you have muted/stopped notifications, you will receive notifications if somebody tags you with an @mention.
