Next is how can you mute a text conversation on android.

Muting a text conversation on android
Below are the ways which you can mute a text conversation on android phone or tablet.
Mute A Text On Google Messages:
Get started by opening the Google Messages app on your android phone. So far I prefer to use google messages on all my android phone compared to the Samsung messages app.
Right now, samsung usually have the google messages pre-installed on their phones and tablets, along with the samsung messages app, making the user select their preferred messaging app.
So let’s continue.
Next is to locate the conversation, and open it.
Look up, and you will see a three dots hamburger menu as shown below, tap on the three dots.
You will be see with more options to select, and which includes Details as shown below.
Tap on Details, and in the next window you will see Notifications, tap on the option.
As you tap on Notifications, on the next window you will see three options;
Once you set the notification to silent, then you’re good to go.
Notifications from the text conversation will be muted, but other conversations will be alerted.
So if you have other texts conversation that you want to silence, use this method to silence the text conversations.
However, if you want to silence or mute all texts conversations on your android, this literally means to silence the message app on your android phone.
This is how to go about it.
Get started by opening the Google messages app, and tap on your google account.
As you tap on your google account, you will see Messages Settings as shown below.
Tap on Messages settings, and in the next window tap on Notifications as shown below.
Tap on Notifications, and set to silent.
And this is how to silent or silent messages on android phone using the Google messages.
To mute a text conversation on whatsapp, you need to do the following;
- Open whatsapp on your phone.
- Open the conversation you want to mute and tap on the three dot hamburger menu.
- Right there you will see Mute Notifications.
- You can set it for 8 hours, 1 week or always.
I love how to mute a conversation is on whatsapp compared to the google messages, in the sense that you can set the number to 8 hours, a week or always.
Though I would have preferred to have a custom time to mute a conversation on both Google messages and on whatsapp.
Aside from these two messaging app, you can mute a conversation on any type of messaging app ranging from telegram to Skype, Facebook messenger, even on iMessage.
And the process is so simply and easy.
So once again, what happens when you mute a text conversation on android? It will simply silence the text conversations on your android phone.
Do messages deliver when you mute someone?
Yes, messages will definitely deliver if you mute the sender.
Muting a text message or text conversation doesn’t mean to block a text message, but rather it simply means to silence the text alert.
The text message will be delivered to your phone, but you won’t receive a notification about the message. This is similar to do not disturb for messages though dnd will block calls, but it will silence text messages.
This is what to mute someone does as well.
It will only silence the text message or the text conversation, and very handy for annoying group messages.
How can you tell if someone put you on mute?
You can’t tell if someone put you on mute as the text message will be delivered.
The text message will be delivered but the recipient may not see the text message when it gets delivered.
This is based on muting a text message.
For calls, if the other person is not responding to your calls, then there’s a chance that the person muted the call.
Still you won’t be notified about it.

To ummute a text message on android phone do the followings;
