How to stop receiving messages from someone on WhatsApp without blocking them Android
If you want to stop receiving messages from someone on WhatsApp without blocking them, you can follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp on your Android device.
- Find the chat with the person you want to stop receiving messages from.
- Tap and hold on the chat to select it.
- Tap on the "Mute" icon (a crossed-out speaker) at the top of the screen.
- Select the duration for which you want to mute the chat – you can choose between 8 hours, 1 week, or always.
- Tap "OK" to confirm.
This will prevent notifications for new messages from this person from appearing on your phone's lock screen or in your notification center. However, you will still be able to receive and read their messages when you open WhatsApp.
If you want to unmute the chat at any time, simply tap and hold on the chat again, then tap on the "Unmute" icon that appears.
