In WhatsApp there is everything: from VIP people that you will want their notifications to highlight a lot to others that you will directly want mute from notification. Good news, this is just what you can do now with WhatsApp Beta 126.96.36.199 and above.
WhatsApp notifications are accompanied by contextual buttons to reply and mark as read, which are now joined the mute button Until now it only appeared in groups or when you received many messages in a row. Now it always comes out.
In WhatsApp message notifications, there are two buttons that always appeared: reply and mark as read. In addition, there has been a third button that is much more elusive for years, the one to silence.
This button appeared, as commented WaBetaInfo, when we received a large number of messages from a contact or group. Now, the button always appears.
In this way, it is very easy and fast to silence the notifications of a person or group, directly from the notification and without having to enter the chat. This has the advantage that the message will not be marked as read and we will be able to continue with our things without the messages continuing to arrive. The novelty is available for beta users and seems to be active for at least some users of the stable version as well.
