How to Unmute or Mute WhatsApp Status

This post will show the steps to mute and unmute status in WhatsApp.

When you mute the contact’s status, WhatsApp will move it to the Muted Updates section, and the contact’s new status will appear there until you unmute it.

The status will appear in the Recent Updates section when you unmute the contact.

I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12) and iPhone X here. Let’s begin.

Mute WhatsApp Status (Android Phone or iPhone)

Here are the steps:

  1. Open the WhatsApp app.
  2. Navigate to the Status tab.
  3. Long-press the contact’s status you want to mute.
  4. Select Mute in the popup. If you’re using an iPhone, hit Mute.

That’s it.

Here’s an alternate method (apply for the iPhone only):

Hit it. Select Mute in the popup.

Open the status and hit the three vertical dots on the top right. Tap the three horizontal dots at the top-right if you’re using an iPhone.

Select Mute, and in the popup, hit Mute.
