How to Mute WhatsApp Calls

You can mute WhatsApp voice and video calls for a single or all WhatsApp contacts on your Android device.

I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12) here.

Before you proceed with the steps, it is essential to note:

  • Muting WhatsApp calls and chats are different. Here’s our guide for doing the latter.
  • Muting WhatsApp calls will affect no other calls.
