Now, it’s important to note that you’ll only be able to mute someone’s status from the Status tab. If the person whose status you want to mute hasn’t uploaded a status, then his/her status will not be visible in the Status tab. This means – you can’t mute them yet. 

You can’t mute someone’s status by heading over to their chat. Instead, you need to wait for them to upload a status and when it’s visible in the “Status” section, you can mute them.

Now, if they have uploaded a status, you’ll see it in the “Status” section. To mute them, tap and hold their status.

As you do, you’ll see a pop-up displaying “Mute {Name’s} status updates?”

Now, to confirm your action, select “Mute.”

As you select mute, you’ll have muted their WhatsApp status.

Now, you’ll only be able to see it at the bottom of the “Status” section under the “Muted Updates” section.

To unmute someone’s status in WhatsApp in 2022, follow these exact steps:

To unmute someone’s status you muted on WhatsApp, the first step is to launch your WhatsApp mobile application and visit the “Status” tab.
