WhatsApp on Friday began rolling out a new update to its “Mute” tab that now allows users in India to put chats of their choice in silent mode forever.
Prior to this, WhatsApp had three timeframe options for users to choose from when blocking a group or individual – for eight hours, one week, or one year.
The app has now replaced the one year muting option with the new “Always” upgrade.
Sharing the news on social media, Indians are going gaga over finally getting to mute their family groups forever that spam the memory on their devices with countless "good morning" and “good evening” photos – which, if left unacknowledged, makes it seem rude to one's elders.
Recently, WhatsApp also added the “call waiting” feature for people using the voice call feature on the app.
