This most widely used messaging app has introduced the forever option in mute menu for the users all around the globe. The Facebook owned messaging app took to Twitter to announce the new feature for the Android and iOS users. This new feature will also ben available on WhatsApp for Web version.

Once the app is update you will have a Mute Forever feature in the list under the Mute option in Settings menu. You need to click on the option to mute a particular chat forever. This means you will never be again notified if the muted contact sends you a new message. This feature is a must have and a much-needed feature for the users who are annoyed with the unwanted messages each day. The mute forever feature will now play an important role as in the pandemic era we are bound to work from home and depends highly on WhatsApp to connect with the friends.
WhatsApp has recently extended voice and video call participant to eight from four members. WhatsApp is also planning to add voice and video calling feature to WhatsApp Web version.
