WhatsApp should have a function that can also be used to mute chats. Conversations can be moved to a “Read Later” category. In the Chats tab, the corresponding button will then be visible at the top: If you click on it, you can see the muted chats.

The Read later function is documented at WABetaInfo and is intended to replace and expand the archiving of chats. If a chat is currently in the archive, the user will continue to be informed about new incoming messages and the chat will be automatically moved from the archive back to the main chat area.

The chat is then still visible in the regular list of chats and the number of new messages is displayed.

The new “Read later” – Function is in beta version 2. 21 2.2. in front. It is unclear when the function will be available in the major version. Temporarily it should be possible to switch off this new function: Then the chat is moved from the Read-later collection to the list of main chats when a new message arrives.
