According to WABetaInfo, some users with access to beta version 126.96.36.199 discovered this long-awaited feature.
Why do they mute people and groups on WhatsApp? Many do it for mental health, others because we need to focus during the day on things that have nothing to do with the application.
But, we agree that there are people and groups that sometimes we would like to silence forever. However, the messaging application does not offer this option, it only lets us do it for eight hours, a week or a year. Although everything indicates that we will soon enjoy the feature.
According to WABetaInfo , some users with access to beta version 188.8.131.52 discovered this long-awaited feature. This means that in the future the option to silence groups and people for life may be available.
By deploying the alternatives to silence a group or person,the one-year alternative disappeared and was replaced by “forever”.
