On many occasions we are obliged to belong to groups of WhatsApp be it for work, friends or family. These turn out to be a nuisance when we receive messages every minute and despite the fact that the app allows us to silence them, notifications continue to arrive when they mention or tag us. In the next one, we will teach you how to avoid these annoyances.
The referred instant messaging application is the most used worldwide. Since its creation in 2009, it already has more than 2 billion users internationally; however, on some occasions WhatsApp It turns out to be a nuisance for groups.
There is a way to disable group messages even if they mention you, however this option is still in beta testing. This is the “Vacation Mode”, which will allow us to archive all the groups we want in a folder, in this way the messages will not reach us until we decide to unarchive the groups.
It should be noted that when the selected groups are unarchived, the conversations, photos, documents, etc., they will remain intact for the entire time that we have been discounted from the labor or social world. WhatsApp It has not yet determined the launch of this function and it is not known if it will come to fruition; previously, the platform has given up on many features that were under test.
The current version of this app allows you to configure it to avoid that when you are watching a video on YouTube, Facebook, reading a Word file or any other document, notifications that generally occupy the entire screen do not reach you.
For this, you must scroll to the extreme right where the three vertical points are, select the option “Settings” and go to “Notifications”.
Within this section we have to press “Pop-up notification” and select “Never show pop-up window”, finally we return to Notifications and deactivate “High priority notifications”.
