How to mute mention notification on WhatsApp


WhatsApp has given the option to permanently mute notifications in personal chats and group messages since October last year. But this option doesn't prove useful when you are mentioned by someone in a group for which you have already muted that group's notifications. In such a situation, you will keep receiving notifications. Technically this is not a flaw but sometimes you may get troubled by it. Especially when many members start replying to some of your old messages.
However, you can also mute such notifications using a method suggested by WABetaInfo.

For any such message, you can mute the notification on both Android and iOS platforms. This also works for WhatsApp Web or its desktop client. For this, you will have to mute the notifications for that member of that group who is mentioning you while replying to any of your old messages.

So to mute notifications for that particular person, you have to go to his WhatsApp profile. After that you have to tap on his name. Then find the option of Mute notifications there. It may ask as mute for Android and mute for iOS. To mute notifications here, you can choose between 8 hours, one week or forever.

This is beneficial when you do not want to leave a group. But you also want to mute the notifications when someone mentions you.
According to the report of WABetaInfo, this workaround will work even when WhatsApp implements multi device support. It can then essentially sync the rules across devices.
