Mute options are different on Snapchat

The moderators on Snapchat have inserted two options related to muting contact. This option keeps you from getting messages from a specific person and prevents you from seeing a person's stories while going through the other shared stories. So, to mute a story coming from a particular user, you should turn on the Mute option. To mute a contact and not get notified when you get a message from them, you are supposed to turn on the Do not disturb option.

Mute a story on Snapchat

When you mute a story on Snapchat, it does not show at the top of the stories; to see it, you have to find it and click on it manually. Also, the user will remain on your friend list, although you have muted their stories. The best part is that the user will not know that you have muted their story. It is pretty simple to mute contacts on Snapchat.

To start:

  1. Open the profile of the contact you want to mute.
  2. Open the menu located in the upper right corner. The menu is marked with three dots.
  3. Tap on it and look for the Mute Story option.
  4. Select it, and then press the Done button.

Your contact's stories are now set to mute and you will not be able to see the stories that this specific user is sharing.

Mute a message on Snapchat

To mute a message from a specific contact or group, you must turn on the Do Not Disturb option. When you turn it on, you will no longer receive notifications about the messages that a specific person has sent to you, and your contact will not know anything about it. This way, you can avoid particular messages from the sender.

To turn this option on:

  • Head to the friends' list and find the specific person whose messages disturb you.
  • Then, press on the contact and hold until the new screen opens.
  • You will see the Settings option there. Click on it.
  • You will also notice the Do not disturb option in the list of options. Click on it and you will no longer receive notifications. The message will still be in your inbox, but you will not get notified.

To check if this works, open the contacts and hold so the menu opens. Go to Settings to see if the heading now says "turns on notifications" instead of Do not disturb. If so, the option is turned on.
