How can I leave annoying WhatsApp groups without causing offence?

Exit  WhatsApp group without alerting everyone

Although WhatsApp groups foster interactive communication between many people, let’s agree on one thing, they can be overwhelming sometimes. Since its inception, WhatsApp messenger has transcended from only being a social interaction platform to a business one, which many enterprises have come to take advantage of, and groups have become vital in the way we communicate.

However, sometimes friends and family might add you to groups that you might actually not want to be added in. Let’s say, you get added to a soccer group and you are not much of a fan of the sport, but you don’t want to offend the person who added you by exiting. The question would be, how do you exit secretly from a WhatsApp group?

Unfortunately, there is no way on the official WhatsApp messenger application that you can actually leave a noisy group without upsetting anyone. However, there is a  way in which you can get past this. One way out of this dilemma can be to turn off group messages/ notifications for a while. This would mean that any messages sent to the group you are trying to avoid, won’t be registered in your notifications. Your phone won’t vibrate or make noise when you receive a new message. That’s your best bet at avoiding the noise in WhatsApp groups. By following the steps given below you can easily mute or unmute WhatsApp group notifications.

How to mute WhatsApp group notifications

Step 1: Open your phone and tap on WhatsApp.

Step 2: Tap and hold the WhatsApp group chat you want to silence.

Step 3: Tap the mute icon. (You see the mute icon–a speaker with a line through it, appear at the top of the chat list.)

Step 4: Now you have to select a duration. (You will not receive new notifications from this group chat for the amount of time you select.)

Step 5: Duration includes 8 Hours, 1 Week, or 1 Year. Watch the video below on how you can execute this.

Alternatively, you watch the video below to get a better understanding of how you can execute this.
