If you want to stop seeing WhatsApp statuses from your contacts, you can do the following:
- Mute the Statuses of specific contacts: You can mute the statuses of specific contacts by opening WhatsApp, going to the Status tab, finding the contact’s status you want to mute, long-pressing on it, and selecting “Mute.”
- Mute all Statuses: You can mute all statuses by going to the Status tab, tapping the three dots on the top right corner, selecting “Settings,” and then turning on the “Mute updates” option. This will prevent you from seeing any status updates from your contacts.
- Hide the Status tab: You can also hide the Status tab entirely by going to the “Settings” tab, selecting “Chats,” and then turning off the “Show status tab” option. This will remove the Status tab from your WhatsApp interface, and you won’t see any status updates from your contacts.
It’s important to note that muting or hiding statuses only affects what you see on your device. Your contacts will still be able to see your status updates, and you’ll still receive notifications when someone replies to your status updates or sends you a direct message.
