The team of the popular WhatsApp messenger has started to test a feature that users have been waiting for a long time – the sound and alerts in the chat can now be turned off forever.
This was reported by the thematic resource WABetaInfo. The novelty appeared in the beta version of WhatsApp for Android under the number 22.214.171.124. It is available to some users involved in beta testing. Also a similar option began to appear in an earlier version – under the number 126.96.36.199.
At the moment, you can mute the alert for 8 hours, 1 week and 1 year. In beta version the option for a year has been replaced by the option “forever”.
In the previous beta version 188.8.131.52 in the application there are new tools for managing the storage and quick memory cleaning.
