How To Mute & Send Messages To A User During A WhatsApp Group Call

WhatsApp has updated its group calling feature with the ability to mute and message individual people. Earlier this year, WhatsApp rolled out a redesigned calling screen that arranges the names of the participants on the entire screen during group calls or the profile picture of the user during one-on-one calls.

Since then, the platform hasn't launched any features that really take advantage of the new interface. The Meta-owned messaging app also recently released a new privacy setting called 'My Contacts Except' that allows users to hide their profile picture, last seen, and status updates from specific contacts.

Once set up and in use, it can be a good way to increase control over who can and cannot view a WhatsApp profile.

In the past, the ability for admins or users to control audio from other participants and/or send them private messages were primarily resigned to video collaboration platforms like Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
