WhatsApp, a Meta-owned messaging platform is reportedly working on a mute shortcut for group chats for a future update of WhatsApp Desktop beta.
The new mute shortcut feature will be displayed at the top of group chats and will help the users to disable notifications of messages received in the group, reports WABetaInfo.
Earlier in November, Mark Zuckerberg, Founder and CEO of Meta announced that 1,024 users can be added to a group, so the new feature will be very helpful for users who do not want to receive a lot of notifications from group chats.
WhatsApp beta for Android received the same feature to automatically turn off the notifications for large groups two weeks ago.
Meanwhile, the messaging platform had rolled out a new feature to some beta testers that allow users to see profile photos within group chats on a desktop.
The feature helps users to identify group members for which they don't have the phone number or when they have the same name.
