Update to Android version of WhatsApp lets you silence a group until the 22nd century

The update also allows you to disable notifications from the group by un-checking the "Show notifications" box. And a new camera icon located next to the text input field allows you to take a quick photo to send to one of your contacts.
WhatsApp is in the midst of being acquired by Facebook for $19 billion. Earlier this month, the FTC signed off on the deal. Both sides are still awaiting approvals from international regulators.

Interesting. And there is a misspelling on the title.

I was invited to 2 Family groups (one of my side and another from my wife's side) and to be honest, I ended up silencing Group notifications altogether... Sometimes there are 100 new messages overnight... and SOMETIMES I do get interested on what is being said... but most of the time I ignore it... The thing is, I don't want to be the "party pooper" leaving any of the groups... and then having my wife or someone from my family asking me why I deleted it or whatever.... So this update its great news for me...

If you are in Group of 40 people, you get to know the pain.The worst thing is that to avoid that constant barrage of messages, you have to leave the group, and when you leave group it will be known to all members making you feel awkward. Thank god, this update makes thing less annoying.
