(2022) How to Unmute or Mute WhatsApp Calls

Written by Thirumalraj

You can mute WhatsApp voice and video calls. In this post, you’ll see how.

I use WhatsApp Desktop and the app (Android phone and iPhone). Before you proceed with the steps, note that:

  • You can’t do this task on WhatsApp Web.

Let’s start.

Unmute or Mute WhatsApp Calls (Android)

Individual Chat

Note: You can’t mute calls of a specific group chat.

To mute calls from a specific contact chat, follow the steps below:

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app. Hit the contact you prefer and hit the name at the top.

Select “Custom notifications” between Mute notifications and Media visibility.

Enable “Use custom notifications.” Under the Call notifications section, you will see Ringtone and Vibrate.

Hit Ringtone, tap the current ringtone at the top, and select None—Hit Save at the top right.

Hit Vibrate and select Off.

That’s it. You have muted WhatsApp video and voice calls for this specific contact.

The steps above disable sound and vibration when receiving a call from this contact.

A call notification will still appear. You must turn off all WhatsApp notifications if you don’t want this notification.

To unmute, follow the above steps, set a ringtone, and turn on the vibration. Also, turn on all notifications if you’ve turned them off earlier.

All WhatsApp Calls

Note: The below steps apply to contact and group chats.

To mute all WhatsApp calls, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp app.

Hit the three vertical dots at the top right. Select Settings > Notifications.

Under the Call notifications section, you will see Ringtone and Vibrate.

Hit Ringtone, tap the current ringtone at the top, and select None—Hit Save at the top right.

Hit Vibrate and select Off.

That’s it. You have muted all WhatsApp voice and video calls.

A call notification will still appear. You must turn off all WhatsApp notifications if you don’t want this notification.

To unmute, follow the above steps, set a ringtone, and turn on the vibration. Also, turn on all notifications if you’ve turned them off earlier.

Unmute or Mute Calls on WhatsApp Desktop

Muting a single call is impossible on the Desktop app, but you can do this for all calls. Let’s see the steps.

Open the Desktop app and hit the three horizontal dots at the left sidebar top.

Select Settings > Notifications.

Turn off the Incoming call ringtone (which is below Mute reaction notifications). All the incoming calls will not produce sound. But you’ll still see a call notification.

If you want to mute WhatsApp calls without notification, follow the below steps:

Turn on the “Mute all incoming desktop calls,” and you’ll view a popup where you must choose the duration. The options are 8 Hours, 1 Week, and Always.

Choose the one you prefer and hit the Mute Notifications button.

That’s all. Until the chosen duration expires, the WhatsApp Desktop app will not show a notification and produce a sound when you receive a call.

To unmute, hit the Mute all incoming desktop calls option and select Unmute.

Mute or Unmute Calls on iPhone

Like Desktop, you can’t mute calls from individual chat. But, if you wish, you can block a contact.

You can silence all WhatsApp calls by putting your device in silent mode. But you’ll still see a call notification.

Thanks for reading.
