WhatsApp is a viral instant messaging app that we all use in our daily life to connect with our friends, relatives, and colleagues. We can start personal chatting and create groups to discuss with many peoples at a time. But sometimes, useless WhatsApp group notifications become a distraction for you. However, you can mute notifications, but sometimes it’s annoying when you mute a group, but you still receive notifications when someone mentions you. With the recent update, you can now Mute Mention Notifications on WhatsApp.
When you mention someone in a WhatsApp group, a notification will be sent to that contact, indicating that they were mentioned. This mention feature will override any mute settings that you or the person you mention have set up for that group. But with the new WhatsApp feature, you can even mute mention WhatsApp notifications of both group messages and individual conversations.
