How To Set Different Notification Tone On Whatsapp For A Contact Or Group

Not all WhatsApp conversations are equally important. 
Some of the new messages are required to be attended as soon as they arrive, while other chats can wait. 
One way to separate the wheat from the chaff is to set different notification tone on Whatsapp for a contact or group.

Configuring WhatsApp notifications correctly is vital, especially if you have joined many groups, otherwise, you can receive a large number of notifications on your mobile if you do not have the groups muted. 
Muting a group is very simple and recommended if you think you are receiving too many WhatsApp notifications.

How To Mute A Contact Or A Group Chat On Whatsapp

If you wish to not receive notifications of new messages from certain people or groups, then you can mute the notifications of those certain people or groups.

This option is accessible from the menu (the ⋮ button) at the top of any chat, choosing Mute notifications.
Although, it is planned that in the future WhatsApp will allow you to silence a contact or group forever, and for now there are only three options available that is: for 8 hours, for 1 week, or for 1 year.

Steps to turn off notifications for a group or contact

When you silence the notifications of a chat or group, no notice will be displayed when new messages arrive from those contacts or groups, so there will be no audible warning either. 
The other person will not know that you have muted their chat, and you can continue reading and responding to these chats in a normal manner.
