WhatsApp on iOS will no longer show notification badge for chats that you mute

WhatsApp has also added new alignment guidelines to help you position stickers, emojis, and more when editing media.


WhatsApp has rolled out new v2.19.110 update for iOS users, which brings features like customising notification badges and a support page for iCloud backup troubleshooting, and more.

As per WhatsApp's official changelog on the App Store, iOS users will no longer see notification badges for muted chats. This means if you have a group chat on your messenger, which you can't exit but you can't bear to be a part of either, if you mute that chat, you will no longer get notifications from that chat as well. The messages from that chat will also not add to the unread message count on the app icon.
